Bike Tech Blog:

This is where we geek out over anything with circuitry that goes on a bike -- or on a cyclist.

Lights, electric bike kits, GPS, computer systems, and other bike tech gadgets.

And we'll take a closer look at some of the products found on Bike Tech Shop.

Bike Tech has its own charming kind of bike nerdery -- Times Square lights, gadget-packed dashboards, and electric-assist unicycles. Please send us a photo of your bike tech project, or something you've seen out in the wild. Submit your photos here and we'll let you know when we publish them.

Kahlkoff E-Bike and the BONGO Bike Trailer

We recently received an electric bike from Kahlkoff USA for use in an upcoming blogging project at Commute By Bike. Getting going with the project I’ve been going through the paces getting to know all of the ebikes on my daily bike commute.

In this photo from last week, I hooked up a Large Wandertec BONGO Bike Trailer, so I could pick up some of the unused end rolls from our local paper the AZ Daily Sun. These end rolls make for excellent, low cost, packing materials that seems relatively low impact.

The Kahlkoff is a great ebike with the motor built into the crank area and the battery located right above. All of the componentry on this bike are top-notch, chosen for long-lasting performance with everything you need for every-day-cycling. Look for our full review over at Commute By Bike. Also our friend Pete Prebus of Electric Bike Report is currently testing out this bike, so look for his upcoming review as well.

Even with the Kahlkoff loaded down with 40 pounds of paper (plus the 16 pound trailer) weight, the Kahlkoff rode very easily. We’re very excited to be getting into electric bikes here at the Bike Shop Hub and really think that they shine in application such as my morning commute and errand, adding an extra boost for transporting heavy loads by bicycle trailer.
