One of the aspects of the bikes that we love is their simplicity. It is this aspect that also serves them well when considering how rapidly the underlying hub motor technology is changing. Using the Crystalite hub motors allows owners to be able to take advantage of these evolutionary changes by simply changing the hub motor as an easy way to achieve a re-power, provided the motor is staying within the compatibility constraints of the battery+controller. Try doing that with a motorcycle over a 2-3 year model range, when motors and their mounting points can vary year on year..
We're seeing quite a few enquiries from people asking about frame sizes. This is an area where the bikes do differ a little from a MTB, as they are supplied in one size only. The Fighter is better suited to a range of riders up to about 185cm, whilst the Bomber is perhaps a better choice for the taller riders. Adapting the bikes to a riders body size is then done by changing the component mix of seat, stem and bars to get a closer bespoke fit.
I'm delighted to announce that Quiet Rush have offered support to TEDxCanberra by coming on board as a Partner for their 2011 event, held on 24 September 2011 at the National Library of Australia.
In the news release for this event, Stephen Collins (trib) announced: "“TEDxCanberra 2011 will be a full day of thought-provoking and highly engaging presentations by some of Australia’s brightest minds from Canberra and surrounding regions. If you are up for an experience where your mind is blown 10 different ways, come to TEDxCanberra on 24 September.”
Stephen also noted that "TEDx events bring together the world's leading thinkers and change-makers to share their insights into ideas and solutions that matter. This year’s event will showcase speakers from a range of disciplines including: social enterprise and international development, installation art, military ethics, sustainable agriculture, medical innovation and Indigenous affairs."
As an attendee and sponsor of last years TEDxCanberra via Laughing Mind, I can't speak highly enough of the event, with a high calibre range of attendees from Canberra, interstate and international locations. It was a chance to meet and connect with some of the most interesting crowd that I've ever experienced. If you're wanting to come along to this event, get in early as the tickets sell FAST.
We're going to be attending, with our Stealth Fighter eBike demonstrator to give people a taste of the Quiet Rush experience (but no demonstration rides will be occurring on the day- we're there to hear the talks).
