Since it is National Bike Month (did you check out our previous post about it?), the fashion department decided we just had to share this awesome new bike that we saw at the Tommy Bahama preview the other day. Yes I said it, a Tommy Bahama bike. Known for their luxury island living-inspired clothes, Tommy Bahama hit the nail on the head with this one.
After teaming up with Pedego, a leading electric bike company, Tommy Bahama will be marketing and manufacturing electric cruisers that are lightweight and totally fun to ride around on. While they are on the pricier end ($2,700!) we still think that they are a great wish list item.
What makes an electric bike different?
The bike’s manual 6-speed style is the way to ride if you decide you want to burn some calories and pedal, but it also features a 36 volt lithium battery that can take you up to 20 mph. And get this: It kicks into gear with just the flick of a switch! Pretty cool, huh?
Here are some other awesome electric cruisers that we love:
Now tell us: What do you think about electric bikes? Would you ever consider getting one?
