Canadian Tire has a new product; an electric bike that goes by the name Strong GT-S210. Looks like this:
I walked up to this bike in the store, and tried to pick it up. I consider myself a reasonably strong man, and I have lifted very heavy items before...but this bike weighs a LOT. So much so, I did not feel safe lifting it in the store. I cannot possibly see what use the pedals would be, except on a downhill run.
On the other hand, they do indicate a 100 km range, and a top speed of 28 km/h. Which appears impressive, except for the fact that I can average that same speed on my Miele without too much effort, and a moped can usually get up to 50 km/h. So, what I'm wondering is, what is the point of this bike? Would people use it as a viable "Clean" alternative for daily commuting?
