Introduction

Hi Everybody.
I have looked through the forum a bit, you have some very interesting bikes and concepts here.
I live in BC Canada, lots of mountains and lakes. Riding a bike is very difficult here and with bad knees even more so. Last year I bought an electric bike and is this bike a blast and quick too. I really enjoy biking again. I get many people asking about my bike, especially when I fold it and place it beside my table. With gas at almost $6 a gallon and going up daily I know I will get a lot more use of my bike this year. I will post a picture of my bike when I figure out that area.
Good Riding to All

Hi Drog, where are you located in BC? Lots and lots of members in Vancouver, at least two or three in Victoria, and at least a couple in Kelowna.

I am getting the impression that a lot of people are becoming interested in e-bikes--it seems that at least one or two people a week join up just for the e-bike forum!

Welcome to BF!

Wow, I did not even know of such thing? So is there a way that this gives you exercise if it's electric? Sorry if u think that is a stupid question, I just have not heard of e-bikes before?? Are they outrageously priced?

Yes, they operate just like a regular bike most of the time. The electric part comes in handy for going up hills.

We have an e-bike forum here...http://www.bikeforums.net/electric-bikes/
