Edit: Is this an excuse to go to Strath in the morning? :)

It might be best to give them a call first before making the trip, as the electric bike isn't listed on their website.

They don't open till 10am on Sundays, but now you mention it I'll pop down there before meeting up with JB at Hahndorf.

Just saw one of those Modena S's - exact spec as I ordered - was just sitting outside my place, looks great!  However - I can see that the first time a cop sees you riding one of these things without a # plate you'll be pulled over, and potentially get done for driving unreg'd vehicle.  The pedals were a joke.

I followed this one down Kensie Rd, through the Britannia roundabout and into town.  I thought the RH pedal was going to hit the tarmac on the roundabout.  :eek:

He used the bike lane when he could and stayed left when he couldn't.  At the Frome Street lights, he used his feet to push the bike to get started rather than using the pedals - I can't say I blame him as the pedals are so far back as to be pretty useless.  The guy behind him tooted him to hurry up!

I found a review of the Aprilia Enjoy - said the thing is junk and has been discontinued.  Back to the drawing board - looking for a tolerably good looking electrically assisted bike.

Might purchase one of these in a few weeks if I can convince the wife... might get her a Compy model so she's happy. I'll take the Sportif!
Who's got an electric bike?? and how's it going for you? I work about 20 minutes away so I think i'll ditch the car and get an electric bike!

I saw one of these last week and I want one.  It's time to save the planet - or time to buy a gadget - and they are only $1,100.   :cool:
