OSNews, Generic OSes I had the chance to attend the bike industry’s annual DealerCamp in my hometown of Park City, Utah last week. It’s an event where dealers and manufacturers can meet up, and everyone can try the latest bicycle technology on the roads and trails. While there, I took a particular interest in electric bicycles, which were represented by several vendors. Electric bicycle tech has made some major strides in the past few years, but still has a long way to go, in particular on the software side.

...and does away with a mechanical drivetrain altogether...

I have thought that this would be a good way to do as well. (For cars as well as bikes)

I bike to work a lot of the time, but there is a valley I have to go through from home to work. So work and home I end up sweaty. (I go to work early enough that it is not a problem, but the way home in the summer is bad.)

Commuting on a bike that I could provide some supplementary electric charging to, but not much of a sweat would be great as some places I have worked I cannot really arrive sweaty.
