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.

I've got a bionx on one of my bikes. I like the system, and for braking I almost only use the regenerative brake.. (I live near Antwerp, Belgium, so it's quite flat). The system certainly doesn't work perfectly, but when you're used to it it is very nice.

Last Spezialradmesse I could test ride a couple of bikes with a system from Bosch, that one really works like a charm. There is no regenerative braking, but the (software of that) system really works good.

Talking about software: the gocycle even has a plug for usb to install updates! ( http://www.gocycle.com/ )
