    I just saw this in the October Pop Sci today. I'm rethinking this whole electric bike thing. It might be a good way for non-cycling spouses to be able to keep up/go the distance with the more experienced cyclist and perhaps learn to love it while pedalling when they can to build up their own stamina.
    Regards,

    But doesn't hydrogen have the nasty habit of exploding easily? I think the last place most people would want to have a mini-Hindenburg is right between their thighs...
    Nothing is so good that somebody, somewhere, will not hate it.

    Yes it does. Germany couldn't get hold of any helium for the Hindenburg so they used hydrogen instead. Sadly, the rest is history... I agree between my thighs is not where I want a hydrogen bomb! What ever happened to just pedaling?

    HillaryRose, yep, and that is the big disadvantage mentioned in the little blurb in Popular Science.
