Nicely done. One of our neighbors assembles and sells electric bikes out of his garage and I'm tempted to get one...since our summers almost last 12 months (and its very flat here).

Highly recommended. You get as much exercise as you want and also get where youre going. This has a 500 Watt Crystalyte motor with 36 volt LiPo battery. That bottle mounted to the frame powers my air horn. What a hoot.

Looking like a fun way to get around town. Little to hot here to use something like that in our summer, 102 degs F you get hot even on a motorbike.

Neat shot, I like how this one came out. If I didn't live so many miles from work and didn't live where there's not much that's flat, I'd get something like this. At least the summers are pleasant enough (for the most part, and certainly this year) for bike riding.

All the buses have bicycle carriers on the front that hold 2 bikes. Trains carry them for free. Having a bike now is a good deal, no matter how far you want to travel with it.

A couple times. All the wiring is sealed pretty good. I think the only thing that might not be nice is cold winter months.
