It's nice to meet everyone. I'm Andrew. A 28 year old guy from South Bend (Home of Notre Dame Football!) / Mishawaka Indiana. I just recently got my hands on a brand spanking new never before used EV Powercycle 550. While the bike has never been used before the battery is having some issues as it won't charge completely and entirely (from what I can tell), but it still works wonderfully. I bought two bags for it, a hefty lock, and a very nice helmet to go with it.
The bike was stored in some old ladies basement and her husband and her never took it out for a ride. It was in mint condition when I bought it, such mint condition, the wheels still had the nubs on the wheels. :)
I got it for an absolute steal of a price, but I won't mention how much I got it for because I fear I may make a few people upset here ..
Anyway.. I look forward to learning how to keep this beast maintained and learning how to re-wire it when the battery finally kicks over to the great charging station in the sky.
I bought 2 of them for $208.00 each if you got a better price, good for you, I won't be jealous. I have had lots of experience with these bikes known as the Merida. Here is my web site which gives you lots of information and ways to modify the bike to get more speed and range. Here's hoping you have many wonderful hours of riding. BTW I'm in Southern Illinois, are you located anywhere near there?

Yes actually I am.
I'm about.. 3 hours north east of Chicago. :)
I am in Southern Illinois about 7 hours south of Chicago, near St. Louis Mo. BTW my website works best in Mozilla.

Choosing what? Purchasing a new or used vehicle means going over list after list of things to watch for. Most lists put the profile of the tires very low on the list of things to search for. Making the selection between low-profile and regular tires might seem minor. The choice, however, can have a big impact on the performance and maintenance costs of your car. Low-profile tires are costly and difficult to drive with. Before determining on this option, you need to know what you are getting yourself into.
