Remember back in the day, back when San Francisco Board of Supervisors President David Chiu was test-driving the new Trek electric bicycles along with a few other supes? Well, it looks like the test-ride is over and nowadays this is his regular ride.
cf. my bike (the red one) – it was about five times cheaper and it has better brakes, gears, pedals, tires, etc., but, sadly, it does not have electric assist. Click to expand:
Here’s a reverse angle of President Chiu’s ElecTrek:
You could totally haul Trek’s black beauty upstairs. The big issue is the $2000+ price, but oh well.
cf. Mayor Gavin Newsom‘s official ride, complete with a satellite TV antenna to see hisself on the CNN and an engine bigger than a bus and a saddled-up weight that’s so heavy it requires an official-bidness-only exemption to be legal in many parts of San Francisco (including a block of his own street). Srsly.
