  2. Copenhagen Wheel (Copenhagen Wheel)
      "The Copenhagen Wheel turns the bike you already own, quickly and easily into an electric bike with regeneration and real-time environmental sensing capabilities. The wheel harvests the energy you input while braking and cycling and stores it for when you need a bit of a boost. At the same time, sensors in the wheel are collecting information about air and noise pollution, congestion and road conditions."

      "The Copenhagen Wheel differs from other electric bikes in that all components are elegantly packaged into one hub. There is no external wiring or bulky battery packs, making it retrofittable into any bike. Inside the hub, we have arranged a motor, 3-speed internal hub gear, batteries, a torque sensor, GPRS and a sensor kit that monitors CO, NOx, noise (db), relative humidity and temperature." 07-25-12

  3. Copenhagen Wheel (Green.Autoblog.com)
      "The Copenhagen Wheel from Superpedestrian is a simple, easy way to keep the road from rising too steeply and the keeping the wind always at your back. We were telling you about it (and its FlyKly competitor) just a little while back. Basically, it has a battery, motor, and other bits all contained within a large but sleek hub. It helps you pedal up to 20 miles per hour and can assist your efforts for about 31 miles. The removable 48-volt battery charges up in four hours from empty and is said to retain about 70 percent of original capacity after 1,000 cycles (spare and replacement batteries are also available)." 01-14
