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.
