It's time to stop apologizing for riding an electric assist bike, it's the future of transportation. Welcome to the revolution.

We are part of a movement toward a greener, healthier, and more rewarding way of getting around in our daily lives. People in America are beginning to rethink the role of the bicycle in transportation, lets show them what's possible!

EcoSpeed has been making high end kits for forward thinking people for the last 10 years, and we have always made them one at a time, to order. We have sold 471 motor systems to people around the world, but EcoSpeed can not continue to make kits for people in this way. Our made to order days are over, it keeps us from being able to expand and bring enhanced cycling to the lives of as many people as possible.... today we are stepping forward onto the national stage and showing people what our kits can do for their lives. We are going to make our first production run, and the focus from here on out is empowering as many riders as possible!

We have launched a Kickstart campaign to organize a group buy that will fund our first production run, and we would be honored if you would check it out and see what we are up to. Join us in our steps forward, as riders with EcoSpeed, you are definitely part of the solution, and we wouldn't be doing this without you. We are offering great prices on kits and batteries, so if you or someone you know is looking for a new system or a replacement battery, now is the perfect time to buy. ....and if your not ready for an upgrade, but want to support us in contributing our electric assist to the world, we have some great locally made gifts to offer our backers, lets rock this!

And at Salem Hospital?

Wonder what the overhead percentage is at Salem Hospital? Lobbying for excess parking and the destruction of Salem's history isn't cheap.

> Authors say single-payer reform could save $150 billion annually on hospital overhead

> A study of hospital administrative costs in eight nations published today in the September issue of Health Affairs finds that hospital bureaucracy consumed 25.3 percent of hospital budgets in the U.S. in 2011, far more than in other nations.
> Administrative costs were lowest (about 12 percent) in Scotland and Canada, whose single-payer systems fund hospitals through global, lump-sum budgets, much as a fire department is funded in the U.S. . . .
