electric bikes... worth getting?
i stumbled apon a flyer today and noticed these electric bikes have been going down in price quite alot over the past year... its a schwinn I-zip that claims speeds up to 30 km with pedaling, that would be awesome:D
The only reason i would ever consider getting one is because i use my bike for transportation and it can get a bit frustrating to pedal every morning in the cold or rain or snow, i figure the riding time would be cut in half if i could go as fast as shwinn claims the bike will ride...
so does anyone have any experience with electric bikes? are they gimics or do they perform well under normal street riding conditions?
