Last Ride of the Electrom Prototype
I have put the new Electrom1 frame into service with a basic seat and cargo rack while I work on the bodywork molds, lighting systems, and many other aspects of the new bike.
In order to free up some space in my cramped shop I decided to take the old prototype up to Hornby Island, where I have some storage space.
It would be a 210 km trip door-to-door with 3 breaks in order to take ferries and I estimated that I had enough battery capacity to just make it. But to be safe–batteries are expensive, and they hate being run all the way down–I
stopped for lunch in Parksville and charged for 45 min. I made a short film of the trip using time laps and film.
