I am looking for an electric bicycle that has the potential to be used as a touring bike.
Some features that I would like include:
Bicycles that charge while pedalling to increase distance.
At a minimum, the bicycle should be able to travel approximately 20 miles on a single charge.
It should be able to support panniers. I love the Izip, but the motor assembly is not conducive to panniers. Although this is not critical. Even a single rear rack is adequate.
Ability to add fenders.
Some models that I have liked include the Tresterra Europa, some of the newer izips, and even some of the izip "scooter" like bicycles that charge while pedalling.
