Best Buy to Sell Electric Bikes

Hi-def TVs, iPods, digital picture frames … and now, electric two-wheelers. Best Buy announced last week that it would add plug-in bikes and motorcycles to its stores, starting with the Brammo Enertia in Portland, Oregon.

The Oregonian’s Hard Drive blog, the Portland Business Journal, Good Morning America, and the New York Times all reported on the sale of the bikes, which also include models from Currie Technologies and Ultra Motors.

The vehicles will be zero emissions and capable of commuting. The Enertia, for example, has a top speed of 55 mph and costs $12,000 before state or federal tax credits.

    Hi, Good green cars, I thought you might be interested in these two video clips about green matters down under. In the first Dr,. Ian Charlton probes the consequences of Australians having little interest in biking to work.

    The second shows me working to convince a neighbor to commute to his work on an E. bike, something almost never done in Australia. Only .8% of commutes are by bike.
