Pacific electric bikes

A few days back electric versions of several Pacific models were added at their website.

http://www.pacific-cycles.com/

Of interest is the Reach (pedelec) and CarryMe (motorized).

No weights listed, but the ReachIF is heavy to begin with, while the CarryMe is a great choice for a multi-mode throttle controlled electric bike. Not a lot of detail at this point, but with Li-Po batteries I'd venture to guess the combined electric gear adds 6kg ... perhaps in the range of 15kg?

I realize you're talking of the electric bikes but I do like the Carryme DS (non-electric). I think I found my next folding bike. Either that one or a Strida.

PS: What worries me about the Carryme is that the weight limits are 185 pounds. I'm at 185. I wonder if I would damage the bike if I carry a backpack or get the rack accessory to carry a rack pack?
