    Think Bike

    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

    I'm just a caveman. I fell asleep on some ice and later got thawed out by some of your scientists. Your world frightens and confuses me! Sometimes the honking horns of your traffic make me want to get out of my BMW.. and run off into the hills, or wherever.. Sometimes when I get a message on my fax machine, I wonder: "Did little demons get inside and type it?" I don't know! My primitive mind can't grasp these concepts.

    Think Bike review

    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.

    thanks much!

    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.
