I don't know if this has been discussed here yet. If not, I thought you guys might find it interesting:

It's amazing how many 'no bike is this good' bikes are advertised. I'd wait to see if it is real (the company exists for more than 5 years). I am starting to think this sort of bike is designed to make money from foolish investors and the few fools who waste all that money on them.
Pedaling at 40 mph with that gearing will be purely ornamental.

i got a google alert on this bike as well, as i do track innovations about the erockit and this bike was flagged as it hails from Germany, same as the erockit.
1) good to see private sectors showing interest in pushing the design envelope on ebikes
2) and most importantly: very expensive for what it does. My ebike, LIFEPO4 72 volt 15ah system built on a cheap but rugged CCM moutain bike from Walmart, outperforms it and at a fraction of the price, I won't be buying one of them soon.

Its a hardtail. That thing will destroy itself in no time. I hope who ever is silly enough to spend that kind of money on it knows how to true a rim like a pro.
