The company that designed the original Mini Cooper has launched four new e-bikes with tiny hub-mounted batteries that offer super-long range thanks to regenerative braking.

As BikeRadar reports, Cooper Bikes (the cycling arm of the Cooper Car Company) has implemented the same type of kinetic energy harvesting system used in motor racing. Pedal backwards and the Zehus Gen 2 drive system activates engine braking while recharging the battery. You only need to spin the pedals backwards three times to start the process, but it looks like there will be something of a learning curve.
