Electric Bicycle From A Turkish Student
“I used to complain about traffic and with the education I received decided to assemble a solar powered bicycle.” said Yigit Kaan Er, an engineering student in Konya on Sunday.
He said, “Electrical bicycles are common nowadays. Bike I developed has solar cells charging the battery that provides electricity to the motor.”
“Bicycle weights around 35 kilograms. During day time around 5-6 hours of sun is enough to completely charge the battery.” he said
“When battery is full bicycle has a 40 kilometer range.” he added.
Er said that the device is environmentally friendly and he will keep working on improving the design.
