    That's more of an electric motorcycle with a pedal generator/contoller...but cool, very cool.

    veeeeeerrrrrry interesting . . . .

    the pedal/accelerator is unusual and a little scary--I find that if I try to pedal either of my HT's going faster than about 15 mph, the pedal side chain jumps off of the sprocket and wraps around the rear axle. I'd hate to have that happen at 50 mph.

    No problem- pedals are not connected to the rear wheel in any way. Pedals can not propel it- only charge it and control speed.

    We gotta figure out a way to incorporate this into our bikes!

    $44,000 dollars? I think I'd rather buy a well appointed Mercedes or BMW SUV for that kind of scratch.

    The electric bike obviously isn't made in China ;-)
