Awesome...
I just can't get onboard with the electric bikes. Other than 100% of the torque at all throttle openings, I don't like them. Nowhere near enough range to be useful. Or even adequate as anything other than a grocery getter. The offroad versions are worse in that regard. 25 mile range or so. Not even enough for one big loop at Brushy Mountain. And who's going to bring you spare juice when you get stranded even a couple miles from a trailhead at a place like NCMP?

Maybe someday, but no desire to be an early adopter on these.
