Video: Epic faceplant on a homemade e-bike

We shouldn't laugh – this crash would be painful enough on a normal bike, but that's a 44lb e-bike slamming into Terry Hope's head. The Vancouver resident is undeterred though – not content with adding a 1,000-watt electric motor to his 1998 Specialized FSR, he's now working on converting the bike to solar power. Maybe stay away from the BMX track in future, eh?
