Re: I have added a new roomate for my Vectrix in the garage

Wow ... !!! That is some awesome electrice bike!!! How much does it cost in American dollars? Is it available in the United States? And what would be the cost to get one here in the US? What are the specifications using Standard units?

-- weight (total including batteries, but not rider)
-- top speed

Also, how does it ride without using the motor? If you choose to ride without the motor, is it practical to get around just pedaling ... ???

I'll be adding adding an electric motor, still don't know which one ... to my Electra Townie soon. Hope to save enough to either buy another bicycle, or perhaps a small electric bike. I like the electric bike that Cedric Lynch rides ... !!! Have you seen that?
