It wasn't entirely clear on your site -- you're in Ontario, Canada?

I ask because there is a Durham in North Carolina and that's the one which leapt first to mind.

I am considering buying an Dream Ryder from volt Canada and was wondering if anyone had any feedback on how far they will go and what the hill climbing is like on one. I dont drive so it would be my main means of transportation. John

Mine is the 2008 version and has a practical range of 50 to 60 Km. And since it has the 3 speed controller and 65Nm of torque its climbing ability is quite fine. The new version for 2010 has a 60V system, this should give you excellent torque. The range is probably close to the same as mine, might be a little further. I have no new info other than that. I hope this is helpful.
Other than popping a controller last year ( it was partially my own fault ) I have had no major issues. Please contact me if you have any more questions.
