The US Senate passed SR 1156 clearing the way for the legal defination of an electric bicycle. The law assigned the governance of electric bicycles to The Consumer Product Safety Commission who defines an electric bicycle as having two pedals, and the capability of being propelled by those pedals, an electric motor of no more than 750 watts, a top speed (on motor only) of 20 mph. We put in the controls and motor specifications to meet such requirements. Our electric bicycles do not have to be registered as motorized vehicles.
