Thanks to all who responded.

I live on the West Coast of Florida and there seem to be limited choices available in the locals stores. My intention is to seek out and try what is available within an hour's drive but was looking for suggestions that might be worth a longer trip
None of the bikes were bad and I can understand why you might become accustomed to any of them but just like in buying anything why not look for what best suits your needs?

Range anxiety is probably in my head.. However it does seem (from reading the forums) that the stated range for any bike is probably an overestimated hope rather than a reality. For example I don't need 30 miles but 20 would get me downtown and back with a small margin for error. I seem to have read comments about 30 mile ranges being more like 20 or 17 depending on the amount of boost needed.

I am going to try the Copenhagen wheel once again.
