23ct Gold Plated $13,995 Optibike OB1 electric bike hits the streets

Boulder, CO, May 29, 2009; The American made Optibike OB1 electric bike hits the
streets today, with only 24 available in 2009.

“We have customers all over the world who pre-ordered and will be taking delivery
starting next week. So far, 2 of 24 have been delivered.  One went to a Swiss buyer, and
one to NFL Superstar DeMarcus Ware.  The rest of the customers in wait are an equally
impressive bunch.” says Craig Weakley, Marketing Director.

A handful of 2009 OB1’s are still available.

The Optibike OB1 is equipped with the absolute best cycling components: Carbon fiber
handlebars, Patented PDA interface with GPS, oversized Avid Code hydraulic brakes,
and front and rear Fox suspension all rolling on the brand new Crank Brothers Iodine

Outfitted the largest, and lightest battery offered in an electric bike with a nearly 1 hour
ride time at full speed or 2.25 hours in “eco” mode, the Optibike OB1 sets the bar high
for electric bikes.  The comparatively low power Eco mode on the OB1 has a higher
output than most imported electric bikes have at full power.  Top speed is 34+ mph.

Each OB1 features a fully custom paint job by the world-renowned custom motorcycle
painters at Gunslinger Custom Paint.  The paint scheme includes a 23ct gold foil inlay
with individually unique pin striping.  Customers have an option of 4 color schemes: red,
blue, green or silver.

The OB1 is the signature model of award winning electric bike designer and former
champion motocross racer Jim Turner.  One of Mr. Turners 2008 Optibike OB1’s is
currently on exhibit in the California Academy of Sciences touted as “The Future of
