    Stockholm Wheel opinions?

    I think they make some good points about the Stockholm wheel (if this is what they are referring to) on this site. That is a lot of weight to keep spinning, I kind of like the bike. No telling how much it is compared to just buying the one piece wheel.

    Those bikes with battery packs look dumb, I don't think anyone in this section of the forum will be into this. I'd get a motorcycle before I would ever buy one of those.

    I think he might be. I believe he means the Copenhagen Wheel which both he, and the website are very careful not to specifically mention by its proper name.

    If I were going to go with an electric bicycle, it'd probably be one of the cool Specialized ones. A former co-worker was test-riding one he got from a Specialized employee (I live near Morgan Hill, CA), and he said he averaged 30 MPH on his ride into work. I see a guy here in my complex that has one, too, but I haven't been able to stop him to talk about it because he shoots out like a bat out of hell in only a few rotations of the crank.

    I think the MSRP is something like 6,000 USD, though.

    Oh, Copenhagen Wheel, sorry. Well, I find a lot of fixie people around here love the idea. I'll have to wait to see it in person. I like the simplicity of a single gear, but am weary that it is too high.

    Maybe I'm wrong about this forum. There's a lot of misplaced attitude among road types, and this is what I dislike about riding a bike.

    I will have to say that the left turn lane is my acid test. If you really believe you should be in the left turn lane, you just might have an attitude.

    I stay to the right of the lane.

    At the local left turn lane I ride across if the light is green, then the next cycle is for cross traffic. I'm usually long gone before the people in the left turn lane get the green, and I'm less likely to get run over.

    But they stick to it, because they believe it's their right.

    Jim.

    You might get a better reaction in the Ebike forum if they are not already sick of these things - there's no reason to waste time about it here...

    Any cycling forum is probably not going to want to hear it.
