    Ssssshhhhhh!

    I guess it is the same frame as the Hummer bike - - which started as the Montague Paratrooper, a bike actually designed for the military. Interesting too that it bristles with name-brand components, amazingly.

    I would never own one; but for a long-range commuter, it's something that could actually probably get me to work all the way from home without having to leave at 4 am every day .

    Not brakes, zeo_max - - front 'hub' holds the battery pack; rear hub holds the motor. They did it to balance it and keep the CG low.

    There is a line above which it is more economical to simply get a scooter.

    What? they're just simple V-brakes. If you're referring to the hubs, the front is a battery, the rear is hub motor.

    I dunno Dm, looks like you may have some other electric competition... for those who have a measly $13,000 to spare.

    ... and just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water... imagine this rig next to you at the gate on your next downhill meet!!

    ^^^In what part of the flux capacitor do you put the beer cans?
    It's better to burn out than fade away...or slip out of your pedal and face plant on the side of the road!!!
