Schwinn's Tailwind eBike

Give the gift of green this holiday with Schwinn's Tailwind eBike, or electric bike. Schwinn says this bike is the fastest-charging bike of its kind, able to recharge completely within a half-hour, versus the four hours required for competitors. The $3,200 bike weighs in at 38 pounds and is officially a pedal-assist bike, meaning the electric motor kicks in only when the user is pedaling. According to company reps, the bike is good for 20 to 30 miles of putting around between charges. The secret sauce is the battery technology, made by Toshiba, called SCiB (Super Charge ion Battery). The battery is rated for between 2,000 to 5,000 charges, according to Schwinn. It should be available in early 2009.
