Think I need some time to get used to this one.

What do you do when your batery is flat? I refuse to belive it is so light you do not mind carrying it for a long time.

What about the health benefits of bike riding? Losing weight, being stronger?

What about poluting batterys, especially when we all really need exercise? For some handicaped peopel w no car: Maybe. For the rest of us: No.

The yike bike is....well....yikes ! It's a joke. It's a toy.
However a bıke wıth an electric kit is not against any health benefıt. Many people do not go bike because of steep hills that are not only difficult but actually are health hazards for them! Also some kits like Bionx may well be used as a thougher exercise since at regeneration mode it allows the rider to push pedal even going downhill.
