High power cycles? Do you like them?

So I have had a conversion kit from high power cycles for a while now and have been very impressed with their service I have received. I have had a warranty issue and they were extremely fast and friendly with service and shipping me replacement parts at no cost. Has anyone else delt with this company and what was your experience with them. I am also very impressed with their products. Their motors are from crystalyte and I don't know where they get their batteries from but there extremely powerful and reliable lithium colbalt manganese. I am impressed with this company. They are worth every penny!

I researched HPC before I purchased my Papamotor kit and thought they were much too expensive. My Papamotor kit and Ping battery are installed so stealthily that every time I ride I have car drivers trying to look for a motor/battery.

Have you ever had a car pace you trying to figure out how you're going so fast? Here's what I'm talking about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Ca9sRlqOok

The only items inside the triangle portion of my e-bike frame are my water bottle and bicycle lock.

That's when I make a show of pumping like a mad man grit face and all.

Yeah, I've done that once and couldn't stop laughing after the vehicle passed me. I can only imagine what the driver was thinking..."damn, that guy must really work out."

The best faces are from the little kids on their bicycles. They stop immediately in their tracks with amazed looks on their faces. I hope I'm inspiring future bicyclists.

They are pricy but your just paying for the very expensive battery and warranty.
