The ‘2,000km Teardown’ is the name we’ve given to the short film we’ve created about the 2,000km road test of the PAPERBOY® (an e-bike) which I conducted in the British winter of 2020-21.
To put that in context, 2,000km is roughly the distance between our base (Lichfield in central England) and Rome in Italy, or between New York and Miami.
In the film we’ll,
- explain what caused a co-founder of veteran video game company to decide to offer an e-bike
- describe how the PAPERBOY® was selected
- introduce you to Dave Neale, an e-bike designer and builder and co-creator of the PAPERBOY
- discuss what we learned about the PAPERBOY® during the 2,000km road test
- reveal how what we learned is being used by the manufacturer to improve the e-bike, that’s already in production, to ensure that the PAPERBOY® delivers
If you have a question about the PAPERBOY® and would like it to be answered in the short film then please post it here or write to us at email@example.com
My name’s Steve Wilcox.
In 1984 I co-founded Elite Systems, the UK’s oldest continually operating developer / publisher of computer and video games.
In 1986 Elite published the home computer versions of Paperboy, a coin-operated game from American arcade game legends Atari.
The home computer game versions of Paperboy topped the UK game charts for a then record breaking three months.
