EVELO, Inc., a New York City-based electric bicycle company, announced today that one of their electric bikes will be displayed as part of an exhibit at the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame located in Davis, California.

The bike, one of three models currently manufactured by EVELO, is a pedal-assist electric bike equipped with a NuVinci N360 drivetrain, can reach speeds of up to 20 mph on electric power, and is powered by a lithium battery with an estimated battery range of 40 miles. The rider can switch between pure pedaling, pedal-assist, or electric-only modes.

EVELO electric bicycles were recently used for the Trans-American Electric Bike Tour (, where two riders traveled on a 3,700 mile journey from New York to San Francisco using the bikes. The tour lasted from April 7, 2012 until its completion on June 20, 2012.
