Brio Electric Bikes in Monrovia will be carrying several models from Haibike, a German brand imported by Currie/IZIP, that features the new Bosch motor system.Haibike models will feature Bosch’s Performance Line motor, and is designed for sportive, powerful cycling and accelerating in hilly terrain. The motor is mounted at the crank (pedal arms), which gives better weight distribution than hub motors, and allows the motor to run more efficiently.The Haibikes themselves are beautiful bikes that look more like modern mountain and hybrid bikes than electric bikes. There are full suspension models, making off road riding possible for the less athletic. The battery is pack mounted where the water bottle rack is usually found, which makes them look ‘natural’ and a low center of gravity.Haibike, as all bikes with the Bosch system, won’t come cheap and will not be available until the spring. If you don’t want to wait and spend top dollar for the latest, check out the 2013 clearance going on now at Brio.Check out Brio Electric Bikes’ Facebook announcement here Electric Bikes is located at 113 E.

Funding for Tweed River and Terranora Inlet Dredging Announced

first_imgMinister for Lands and Forestry, Paul Toole, together with Tweed MP Geoff Provest, announced earlier this week that the navigation channels at the lower Tweed River and the Terranora Inlet at Tweed Heads would be subject to a $1.8 million dredging program.At the ceremony, the minister said that the NSW Government committed the funding as part of its Coastal Dredging Strategy and the Dredging Priority Waterways on the North Coast program.“This is a significant investment for the region and will ensure the channel remains safe and accessible for the many recreational and commercial vessels that travel through the area,” Mr Toole said.“Dredging coastal river entrances provides a direct benefit for boating safety and the economy through maintaining access to waterways for both commercial and recreational boaters.”The lower Tweed River and Terranora Inlet are important waterways to the region and this work will help maintain safe navigational channels for both locals and visitors to the area, Tweed MP Geoff Provest said in its announcement.Work is expected to begin this month and finish around mid-October, in time for the summer boating season.Around 25,000 cubic meters of sand will be dredged from the lower Tweed River and an additional 58,000 cubic meters from the Terranora Inlet.The dredged sand will be dewatered and used to nourish Kingscliff Beach, with this work being done in partnership with the Tweed Shire Council which is completing other beach protection works.[mappress mapid=”24164″]last_img read more
