Interesting concept.  I'll bet it's riotously expensive though... :P

No suspension other than those cute little street tires? I'm too soft for that kind of ride! :0

I'll stick with my full motion monkey cycle, it's big tires and 27 gears.

As a very long time cyclist ive never liked motorized bikes, usual they weight a ton and dont go very fast, i pass many going up hills, yes im probably more tired but i also ride to keep fit, so not for me but very cool and compact looking,plus nice to see one on a lightweight road bike,  :tu:

My mother always told me that if I have to ask the price, I can't afford it!  :P

It´s nice to see those technology implemented in a decent looking bycicleand not one of thoseawkward looking ones they sell here in hardware stores or those "city bikes " that are for sale at bicycle stores.

I´d like to test ride one but fear i couldn´t afford one, too.

If this technology gets more widespread and cheaper it would be a nice alternative for my daily job commute and the ways i have to do while working. I´ve seen some postal service men use electrified bikes in more rural areas.

Exactly - this looks like a decent ride, not some bizarre hair dryer strapped to a girls bike contraption! The idea that these hybrid bikes are getting updated designs is great.

If you read all the blurb on it, it's also very clever as it uses braking energy to recharge the battery and goes at 45kph amongst other things. I like it anyway :)

With my back the way it is I'd love to get an electric motor onto my Brompton. I do think that hybrid bikes are a definite transport solution of the future.

Give in, buy several Farmer's!!!!!!

Those bikes are usually fairly pricey  :drool:  I like the looks of this one though and it couldn't cost anymore than some of their c/f models.
