Pedal Assist vs Throttle: Why Is This Even An Argument?

November 21st, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

Sometimes electric bikes stir up controversy. On ebike groups and forums, it's common to hear about arguments getting started simply by riding one. If you pass a group of cyclists, especially the "Spandex Man" type, you can get ridiculed and even accused of "cheating." Some jurisdictions heavily restrict or even ban ebikes, because they're perceived as dangerous, or because an obsolete law considers them to be a motor vehicle

Micromobility Has Always Been King

October 26th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

In recent years, there's been a lot of buzz about micromobility, a term that varies depending on who is talking about it. Some writers only consider it to include shared vehicles of small size, while others limit the term to small electrified vehicles (whether personally owned or shared). Most writers would probably agree that the vehicles must be small, and that micromobility is something new that's going to expand and take a big chunk of the transportation industry


Do What You Can With What You Have (Even If You Can’t Get An Electric Vehicle)

October 25th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

When you look at your finances and see that you're upside down in your current car, that your credit is shot to hell, or that you can't get into a car payment right now (or all of the above), you can't simply wish your way out of that hole, even if you wish really, really hard. Continuing to drive a gas vehicle in that situation doesn't make you a bad person or a sinner

A Clear Solution For Cleaner Air

October 12th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Californians love to be outside. But even on a clear, sunny day, we know that the air we are breathing isn’t as clean and clear as it looks, especially in our increasingly congested and crowded cities. Air quality is a complex topic that is affected by the weather, the time of day, and events like wildfires. But one aspect of air quality is very clear: tailpipe emissions make air quality worse. When those emissions happen in cities, millions of people are exposed to harmful pollution


Lumos Matrix Helmet — The Gold Standard In Bike Safety

September 29th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

It's not often that we write reviews of a bike helmet on CleanTechnica. For most people, and for most helmets, there's nothing special. You find one that fits on your head and that meets the applicable safety standards, adjust it to fit, and go. Lumos decided to go above and beyond the normal with their new Matrix helmet. Not only does it protect your head, but it has features that can help prevent an accident from happening in the first place
