Yikes! Want! My home built version is soon to be unveiled. Based on a KHS Smoothie crank forward.

Less than the Audi, if that helps.

I'm stuck on the BMW, my leader for style and mid drive design.

That bike is wicked. Electric bikes are becoming much more visible around here, generating double-takes when someone is riding 20 mph up a hill and otherwise keeping up with traffic. I wish I could handle the seats for these...

Love these options and new E-bikes. But it's got to be difficult to pick just one when the time comes to pony up and make a selection.

Not really. I think when you do look, you'll look with the same eye as you did with scooters. The market has a lot of similarities, except that e bikes can be homebuilt affairs. With the right choices they are very sustainable for parts and such. There are a few in bike shape here but they do not sell. I found several dusty E Bikes in two shops. Dead market here. We are not a nation that pedals.

So far we'll have the capacity to charge one by solar. That won't save the planet but it tickles me.

That makes me think of someone on a beach towel at the beach with their solar bike soaking up rays next to them...

Funny, OTOH, the e-cigarette market has really taken off.

To late, and a BMW will never happen. Far to rich for my blood, but still very cool. I'm amazed by the bikes these days, just WOW!
