Tired of gas prices? Hop on an electric Jetson Bike.

Boot Camp feature for Monday, May 7, 2012

   Tired of those gas prices?   An electric bike can make sense and save dollars.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.      Lots of folks are waiting for technology to deliver an electric car that can be used for trips near and far.     In the meantime,  if you have a commute that isn’t so far or are looking for a way around all of that city traffic, the Jetson Bike can be a fun and money saving alternative.   It’s got Vespa styling and says President Daniel Frija….

“It’s slim, it’s sleek.  It goes 20 miles an hour, maximum speed and it has pedals, so that when you run out of juice you can pedal.  And according to the federal  law, if it goes 20 miles an hour or less and it has pedals, than it’s considered like a bicycle.”

 The Jetson Bike has a range of about forty miles on a charge and recharges in about six hours.  The price?  About 18 hundred dollars.     You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
