Gerry: At least yours looks different from all the "pseudo-scooter" designs out there. On my Derbi, I always find myself blowing by another scooter crawling along at 6 mph, only to realize it`s just a tapped-out electric bike.

P.S. it`s top speed is 30kph or 18 mph.
I usually cruise at about 18kph and that`s about the same pace as the other bikes.

Drawman, it`s brilliant. It`s got turn signals, brake light and head light & horn. If it`s a really, really steep hill peddling helps move it up, hence the chain, but mostly it`s just electric. The farthest I have gone is 30 miles and I still had some charge left. Going only electric without peddling to recharge I went 20 miles once...just to test it`s range. I put a big basket on back so I do grocery shopping on it.

@Gerry, I`ve recently had to sell my car, that bike would be ideal.

Gerry your "sissy bike" seems cool, you also have a basket on the front! Full optional.

I didn`t see my electric bike on the list. Behind the front wheel is a huge battery. You peddle to turn a generator to keep it charged. An electric motor inside the rear wheel moves the bike. The advantage is that up hill is the same effort as level ground. San Diego is very hilly so I pass all the other bikes. Here`s a pic of the style.




My husband calls it my "sissy bike" but I like it. I looked it up and I bought 3-4 tanks of gas per month. Now I buy 1. Saves me a minimum of $100 each month... and that means more toys and beer for Gerry!
