Does anyone have an opinion on the Ford Think Bike - are they any good?
There is one for sale locally.
I did a quick search looking for a product review, but not much luck. I believe this is no longer in production and am wondering if parts, batteries are still available?
Thanks for any feedback.

A quick Google turned this up for me.....On a car site

Thanks - just what I was looking for.
Sounds like any signifcant bit of elevation rapidly depletes the battery and the purported 16 mile range.
Are there other types of E-Bikes that have improved on this?
My commute is easily within this 16 mile range and without much elevation, however I would be annoyed if it couldn't get me there and back if a few grade changes caused it to crap out.

I'm no electric bike Guru but I am enough of a techie to know there have to be better batteries. It has an off-bike charger so you will have a problem going somewhere at the limits of its' range. Just a guess but it sounds like something to keep in the truck in case you run out of gas.
