the Trash vitae

Trash is the editor-in-chief of an independent Colorado micro-publisher/ design studio. I dabble in digital photography, the lost art of film image making, and guerilla digital video. DrMAC Studios specializes in books and videos on self-reliance, gardening, dumpster diving, urban foraging and living off the excesses of others.

the electric bike hacker

An interesting article on the movement towards e-bikes and hacking/ converting your personal bike. While I prefer pedal power alone on my bike due to the non trusting of the electrical grid I give these inventive minds a one-up..
While some sort of auto-powering is worthwhile as I get older I would personally use a small gas/ ethanol motor for assistance if I were to want this availability and have a need for it. I have seen several of these and have thought of a conversion for the dumpie bike as time allows. But alas one of the many yet unstarted projects that Trash has contemplaed
Check out the article here and then check out this video for what I am also contemplating
