    Just looks like a normal recumbent with a computer. Did I miss something?

    It looks like a regular BikeE.
    You could put an electric motor on it I guess.

    The price here isn't bad, but a lot of people prefer the unsuspended BikeE's because the suspended ones pogo'd rather a lot {the rear suspension would spring up-and-down as you pedaled**.

    What Doug said. A BikeE is an entry-level bent. The manufacturer is no longer in business. An E-Bike refers to any bike with an electric assist motor. That price seems OK, especially if it includes a rack. As long as it's not hot, that is.

    First; That IS a BikeE. An EBike is another company that makes electric mtn bikes.
    That is a fair price, considering the rack is likely $150 worth.
    The sellers claim of $2,000 is high. I have that same BikeE, and it retailed for $1,100.

    As for suspended BikeE's pogoing when you pedal, that has to do with an underinflated shock and poor pedaling technique.

    BikeE's are an entry level recumbent, but a really good one at that!
    Ours has a permanent place in our stables!
