    My bike shop has one from Trek, the power sits on a rack above the rear wheel, that only goes 20 mph, and he says you ALWAYS have to assist it, else it shuts off.

    $2,100.

    Great performance, but beyond the budget for most of us.

    Looking deeper in the Sanyo Decription, they don't give the best bang for the buck, thats for sure.

    On the cheap end of the spectrum are the EZIP's at Walmart, from $550 to 1,000.

    The $1,000 EZIP Eco Ride Electric Bicycle soecs:

    Funny, no Ebay bargains for used ones, in fact, avg $1,200.

    What I'm thinking is how an e-Bike frame can be converted to a true TRI-bred vehicle, muscle, petro and electric, which surely would confuse an interfering po-po or traffic court judge.

    Also, the CES opinion looked to be strictly amateur-newbie, a shiny "e-bike" label = inspired.

    We know there is a cheaper yet better MB.way, electric in city situations, mo-po on the country backroads.
