Great, another moped design so people get even less exercise. It's more elegant to have direct assist in the hub, I'll give them that. I just can't help thinking that for those who don't need the exercise (non-Americans) there are more rugged, cheaper, SAFER, and more efficient motorized bikes.

Could be wrong. :-)

Wow, prices have come down in the last five years since I bought my bike. I would have gone with an electric, if they had been even twice the price. Now they've pretty much reached price equality for the cheaper models. Pedaling is great fun and a good work out, but it would have been nice to have something that could take over on a hot day to prevent needing a shower when I got to work.

Or that would help me get up the hill or against the wind. Ideally one that would charge when it wasn't assisting, like downhill, flat, or with the wind.
