Interbike 2011 Bike Show and the E-Moto Monterrey Bike that I designed

The Las Vegas Interbike trade show happened on September 14-16 at the Sands Expo and Convention center. One of the (best) electric bikes shown there was the e-Moto Monterey electric bike that I co-designed in SolidWorks with a friend of mine. Although I wasn't able to go to the show I thought that I would write a blog post about the bike since I had a hand in creating it. Have a look at the pictures below of the Interbike show bike and the CAD model that I made to design the bike.

Details of the bike and all it's features are below. I did the entire design in SolidWorks 2009. A friend of mine who is familiar with the bike industry and trends was advising and critiquing along the way.

e-Moto makes great electric vehicles. I don't work for them but I am familiar with their bikes and ride them all the time.
Email me at (or leave a comment) if you would like to know more about either the CAD model that I made, the Interbike show or if you are interested in the e-Moto Monterey bike. I'd be happy to give you more information, or direct you to folks that can!
Don't forget to check out THIS POST to see a rear dropout that I designed and some info on a bamboo bike!



  1. it's great. i like solidworks 3D program i think your draw bicycle so good.

    1. Thanks,

      Please tell Google that the new interface that they have is a waste of time and idiotic.
