Mengubah sepeda kayuh menjadi sepeda elektrik

Shimano, perusahaan di Eropa, sedang mengembangkan berbagai piranti untuk mengubah sepeda kayuh tradisional menjadi sepeda bertenaga listrik. Shimano membuat beberapa piranti untuk memberikan daya listrik tambahan bagi sepeda kayuh. Misalnya, satu motor listrik berdaya 250W dapat membuat sepeda berjalan dengan kecepatan 25 km per jam, sementara piranti pengereman akan membuat baterai lithium-ion 24V/4.0Ah terisi ulang.

[ENGLISH] from Shimano Kit Converts Regular Bikes into e-bikes [Springwise]

Much the way Sähköautot–Nyt — now known as eCars-Now — aims to facilitate the conversion of standard Toyota Corollas into electric vehicles, so Shimano has developed a kit to help convert traditional bicycles into electric ones.

The new STEPS (Shimano Total Electric Power System) component kit is designed to preserve the feeling of the traditional bike while adding the parts necessary for delivering electrical power. A 250W electric motor can take bikes up to 25km per hour, while a regenerative braking function focuses on recharging the 24V/4.0Ah lithium-ion battery, such as when riders travel downhill. The battery is removable for charging, requiring just an hour to juice up when empty, Shimano says; it can be recharged more than 3,000 times, or every day for roughly eight years. Electric switch buttons for riding mode, display mode and a light switch, meanwhile, are integrated into the 4-finger brake levers, and cables with slim 5mm plugs allow easy internal frame routing. A removable cycle computer, finally, offers a clear and quick overview of all e-bike functions, including riding mode, battery power, speed and odometer.

Pricing on the STEPS kit has not yet been announced, but it’s expected to become available in December. Bike-minded retailers around the globe: one to offer eco-minded commuters near you…?
