Daymak Beast : The on-road off-road solar powered e-bike

Daymak Beast

Be among the first to get your hands on the Eco-friendly Solar powered on road/off road Ebike that goes anywhere ---THE BEAST!

THE BEAST STORY

Like to mark your own path? Don't want to be limited by the road? The Daymak Beast Ebike is for you! This electric bicycle that acts like a scooter has full functional pedals that make it street legal in most of the civilized world without insurance or license, and it has wide tires that allow you go where regular bicycles can not go! But wait, the Beast doesn't stop there! Not only can it go on paved roads, dirt roads and off road, it also charges while you are riding, working or resting!
Imagine going into the woods, camping, on a farm, on a mine, in a park, any where, without making a noise! You can listen to the birds or the waves! Your Beast is 100% green. In fact it is one of the greenest ebikes in the market thanks to its solar battery pack! 100% Green! 100% Fun! For ages 16 or older!
Daymak Battery Pack

 The solar battery pack charges at approximately 1 km/hr or 0.6 miles/hr in any type of daylight. Cloudy or sunny the battery is charging! 90% of ebike riders  do approximately 10 km/6 miles or less per day. This means most riders will have no need for a charger (don't worry a charger is included if you need to charge faster).
The Beast's removable battery pack can act as an emergency power generator and features two usb ports where you can plug any small device from your smart phone to a notebook and with 110V/220V plug available on the Ultimate version you can even plug in a TV. What more could you ask for?

KICKSTART YOUR BEAST

Daymak is based in Toronto, Canada. We have been in the business of ebikes since 2001. We have always dreamed of designing our own ebikes, so here we are developing the Beast!
Over the last two years, we have designed and built an all terrain ebike which challenges all regulars myths about ebikes. We are now ready to share the final design result with the world. We are offering the Beast to the early adaptive kickstarter community to find out who is interested in riding a Beast and to see where it will go next!

We're a small company with 10 years+ experience in selling electric bicycles and electric scooters. We believe this is a big idea and are interested in finding supporters to raise the amount of capital needed to establish the Beast as a product in a global market. The additional supplementary financing we are seeking will finally allow us to concentrate on all the details that still need to be worked on like the modification of the frame or the improvement of the driving dynamics. Furthermore, we have to fulfill our engineering obsession of perfecting the Beast in every detail. It will take our team a lot of work, power and money to be able to start with the serial production to share the Beast with the rest of the world.

As we prepare for the production of our first run  we are excited for all the potential backers' support and commitment. If we reach our goal we will be able to add additional features such us upgraded components. The KMC chain, Shimano Disc Brakes, Samsung batteries and most of all, the leading edge Smart phone app for iPhone and Android that will bring the Beast to the next level! The wireless app will talk directly to the motor and batteries and will allow your phone to display all information such as your speed, distance traveled, GPS, battery level and can act as your key.

China rotated a 17,000-ton bridge into place after its construction

China rotated a 17,000-ton bridge into place after its construction

Now THAT’S a swing bridge! Chinese engineers build 17,000-ton flyover section at 90 degrees so railway below could remain open… then rotate it into place
  • Engineers took 90 minutes to swivel the structure into place in Wuhan City today
  • The section was built separately so as not to disturb the busy high speed railway track beneath it
  • It was the first time the unusual construction technique was used in the country
  • China is home to the largest high speed rail network in the World
Forward-thinking engineers in China are the first in the country to have built a section of an enormous overpass and rotate it into place upon completion so as not to disturb the railways below.
A 17,000 ton part of an elevated motorway was today slowly swung into place in Wuhan City after being constructed independently beside a high speed railway track.
Engineers took 90minutes to carefully swing the 17,000-ton structure into place today above a high speed railway track in Wuhan City, central China

Experts took 90 minutes to connect the section to the rest of the bridge, tuning it 106 degrees on a 15metre high axis.
It was the first time the innovative technique had been used in China.
The country has the world's longest high speed rail network with over 6,200 miles of routes in service in December 2012.
The track beneath the bridge in Wuhan City was considered too important to be temporarily halted in order for engineers' to complete construction.
 

Once finished, the overpass will be 256m long and span 11 railways, including the 1,428 mile-long Beijing-Guangzhou service.
Experts estimate the bridge will be open to traffic later this month.

A similar technique was used to construct the Grade I listed Kingsgate Bridge across the River Wear in Durham in 1968.
Designed in 1963 by Sir Ove Arup, the bridge's two halves were built on the river's bank and swung together at 90 degrees.
