Bosch’s PowerTube 400 battery lends a sleeker look to 2020 e-bikes, while its handlebar-mounted SmartphoneHub shows basic riding data and offers a smartphone mount. Bosch Most e-bikes you’ll see on the roads and trails these days have bulky batteries on the tube behind the front wheel and hefty motors built into the hub where the pedals attach. But electric bike powerhouse Bosch is going for a trimmer look with a new suite of components that’ll debut for the 2020 bike season.E-bikes rely on battery power to boost to your pedaling or give you a motorcycle-like throttle. Plenty of cyclists see them as something of an affront to purely human-powered bikes, but they’re steadily spreading as part of the electric revolution sweeping personal transport. E-bikes cut down on the sweat factor on bike commutes into work and extend your speed and range on the trails. It’s electric! Mountain bike racing gets recharged Now playing: Watch this: Bosch Electric mountain bikes are racing ahead The battery and motor make them heavy — often 50 pounds for eMTBs (electric mountain bikes) that more often weigh something like 30 pounds. And the electric components can be awkwardly clunky.Bosch’s new 7.7-pound PowerTube 625 and 6.3-pound PowerTube 400 batteries are designed to offer a “slim and clean look,” Bosch said in announcing the products Tuesday. They have capacities of 625 and 400 watt-hours, and a pair of PowerTube 625 can be linked for 1,250wH.Also new for 2020 are five motors from the German manufacturer:The 6.3-pound Performance CX motor is for mountain bikers who want to be able to ride uphill faster. It’s got a freewheel mode so it doesn’t slow down pedaling when not in use.The Performance Cruise delivers 65 newton-meters of torque and can reach speeds of 20mph. It’s good for tourers, sporty types and some mountain bikers.The Performance Speed, which delivers 75 newton-meters of torque and can reach speeds of 28mph, is best for commuters.The Cargo is designed for cargo bikes that when fully loaded weigh up to 550 pounds. It’s good for speeds up to 20mph.The Cargo Speed is similar but can handle 28mph speeds.Bosch’s new Performance Cargo motor will enable 2020 e-bikes that can handle a load (including the rider) of 550 pounds. Bosch Bosch also announced a handlebar-mounted device called the SmartphoneHub that can link bike data to smartphone apps like Strava and give navigation directions. It has a display for basic information, but can link to phones with the Cobi.bike app. It’s got a mounting system for snapping phones into place, too.Bosch also is modifying its software in an attempt to thwart tuning — tweaks that bike owners sometimes apply to circumvent speed restrictions. 29 Photos Sport and Outdoors Roadshow 2 Comments Tags Share your voice 1:25
gettyimages [Representational Image]Polling in as many as 14 constituencies in Karnataka will take place on Thursday, April 18, as the second phase of the Lok Sabha elections 2019 gets underway. Other states where partial or full polling will take place tomorrow include Tamil Nadu, Bihar, Maharashtra, Assam and West Bengal. The 14 Lok Sabha constituencies in Karnataka that go to the polls include those in the Bengaluru capital region as well. In Karnataka the Congress-JKD (S) alliance is locked in an intense battle against the BJP. Bengaluru is also witnessing a pitched battle between the two sides.So, what should you know tomorrow as you head to the polling booths? Here are some things to keep in mind as you plan to exercise the democratic right:List of documents accepted as identity/address proof Voters ID Indian passportIndian driving licenseAadhar cardRation cardBank/Post office passbookIncome Tax assessment orderWater billPhone billElectricity billGas connection billRent agreement(The list goes on)No cell phones at the polling boothThe Election Commission (EC) has banned mobile phones within a 100-metre radius of the polling stations. Chief electoral officer (CEO) of Karnataka Sanjiv Kumar said that the voters will be asked to give their mobiles to the polling officials before entering the booth and after casting their vote, the phones will be given back.However, many of the EC officers and public are critical of this move as they think that this plan might backfire on them and would impact voter turnout. The public has slammed EC over this decision.Voter’s helpline 1950The Election Commission has set up a toll-free helpline number-1950 for the voters. The number provides necessary assistance to the voters (especially first-timers), regarding any information about the general elections. The enrolled electors can use this helpline to check details such as personal information and the assigned polling station. They can also find the contact details of booth level officers, electoral registration officers and district election officers. Close A voter can search for the polling booth online at electoralsearch.in or use the Voter Helpline App, developed by the EC, so that the voters can find their polling booth easily.Check your name in the Voters listTo check your name in Bengaluru’s voter’s list, go to- https://www.ceokarnataka.kar.nic.in/Availability of BMTCAlthough nearly half the KSRTC fleet have been pulled for election duties and several BMTC buses also made a part of the elections, people in the capital city have nothing much to worry. Since there are a lot of holidays this week, very few commuters are expected to travel on the BMTC buses.How internal migrants can vote Many Indian citizens find it hard to cast their vote in their home constituencies due to time and money constraints. However, any person who has shifted their residence or is residing at a specific location can enrol their name in the particular constituency (where you have relocated) after providing a formal request to the Electoral Registration Officer.Once your name is enrolled in the new voter’s list, remove your name from the previous list. But the drawback here is that you will not be able to cast your vote for the local elections from your previous constituency.No online votes for NRIs Several fake news articles spread through social media claiming that NRIs can exercise their votes online through e-voting for the Lok Sabha elections. As inviting as it may sound, India does not support online voting and the NRI voters can only cast their vote after registering themselves as an overseas voter, for which they have to fill the Form 6A that can be downloaded online.

*This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Farjana Liakat Sharfuddin Ahmed,Mostafizur RahmanThe income of Rangpur’s mayor Sarfuddin Ahmed has tripled over the last five years. He is contesting for the office of mayor yet again from Awami League in the upcoming Rangpur city corporation election scheduled for 21 December.Affidavits submitted by the mayoral candidates in 2012 and 2017 revealed their annual income and assets.According to the candidates’ wealth statements, Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP)’s candidate Kawsar Zaman’s income and bank loans have increased 12 times, while Jatiya Party-nominated Mostafizur Rahman’s earnings have dropped by one-third.The annual income, bank balance and cash of Awami League candidate Sarfuddin Ahmed was around Tk 4.5 million five years ago. After being elected as mayor, his income spiralled to around Tk 13 million. Sarfuddin’s wealth statement, showed his yearly income, tangible and intangible assets registered both in his name and in the names of his family members.When asked about the matter, Sarfuddin told Prothom Alo, “I have some small businesses that made good profit over the last five years. There is nothing wrong in that”.On the other hand, the wealth of the BNP-backed candidate Kawsar Zaman jumped from Tk 1.3 million to Tk 16 million in last five years. He had a bank loan of Tk 40 million five years back, which is now Tk 500 million. When asked about the loan, Kawsar Zaman told Prothom Alo, “I have bank loans but these are current loans. There are seven directors in our partnership business and that is why the bank loans are high.” He said his income had been boosted by profits from his jute mill and other business.Jatiya Party candidate Mostafizur Rahman is different. The wealth statement he submitted to the election commission revealed that he had Tk 4.3 million five years ago. But now his total income and bank deposits are worth around Tk 1.4 million that is one third of his earlier income.According to the rules, the election commission can take legal action against any candidate in case false information is provided. Even an elected candidate can be expelled for violating the rules if found guilty.Khandakar Fakhrul Anam, Rangpur city committee’s chairman of Shujan (Citizen’s for Good Governance) told Prothom Alo, the BNP-backed candidate’s income might vary as he was an industrialist. Even so, his annual income could be questioned. But Awami League’s Sarfuddin Ahmed’s income seemed disproportionately higher than his business.
Rain is hardly heartening news for Dhaka residents nowadays. Rains mean a water-logging. Memories of last year’s monsoon are still fresh in the memory of the city dwellers. Nothing has changed.In the fourth week of June, a few hours rain caused floods in several areas of Dhaka. Roads and alleys were inundated with the dirty sewerage water at Chankharpul, Siddheswari, Malibagh, Maghbazar, Tejgaon. It was impossible to cross several roads because the rain had caused dirty water to flood the streets.Prices of essentials shoot up and small businesses suffer. The city roads become excessively difficult for the physically challenged. It is not uncommon for motorcyclists to fall off their bikes into the dirty water. Passengers have to pay higher fare to commute short distances. An unbearable stench of dirty water pervades all around, compelling people to wear masks over their mouths and noses.Prothom Alo’s camera caught moments of June’s monsoon distress in Dhaka.The photo was taken from Kalshi, Mirpur on 25 June by Dipu MalakarA brief spell of rain is enough to inundate a good number of roads in Dhaka.
