Oh my! I like the way you think!

I can't believe people still try to come up with excuses why this technology is no good. In 5 years when you're paying $7 a gallon for gas in the USA, you'll be crying as I buzz by you on my electric bike. I drive a truck with a V6 engine and it costs me $30+ a week just to go to work. Nothing else. All I drive is 22 miles a day, round trip. I would love to buy one of these bikes and reduce that cost to $0.15 a week. $120 dollars a month savings would pay for that bike real quick, it might even pay for most of the monthly payment. I can keep my truck for dump runs and trips to Lowes.

The biggest difference would be reducing my carbon footprint on the planet and sticking it to big oil who have continually stuck it to the world for a long, long time.

Had a friend just finish his electric E-bike he races down in cally. It weighs about 100lbs and with him on it can hit a top speed of 71mph charge time 0 to full is about 30 min and it has roughly a 50mile range plus it is legally considered a bicycle cause it still has functioning pedals lol. Anyway he build his own hub motor and its awesome. It has so many advantages over ICE Tech the biggest being on a hub motor design you have 1 moving part making them a lot less likely to have any mechanical problems. As for batteries there are still huge advancements being made in energy density and safety the reality is most people would be fine with a 100-200mile range not to mention the 0-60 speed on a good electric motor is insane since all of it toque is available instantly.
