Instead of using a bicycle weighing 22 to 25 kg, the industrialists have now made it light weight by replacing steel with aluminium and using broad base tyres, gear system and novel colours. The three-day international bike expo that began on Friday displayed a variety of innovations that have come up in the bicycle industry over the years.
Hi-Bird cycles, a Ludhiana-based company, which had introduced luxury rickshaw last year at the expo, announced on Friday that E-rickshaws will soon be introduced by them for local markets. "The rickshaw puller need not apply great force to pull the passengers, E-rickshaw can pull upto four passengers and it will be battery operated-cum-manual," said R D Sharma, managing director of Hi-Bird cycles.
