I have been using an electric bike for 6 years now. It's an older model and has got a couple of rather heavy batteries, but it has been going and going. I have been using the electric power as a back-up to get up really steep hills and also when I am transporting a lot of groceries back to my house. It has almost completely replaced the car for me. It goes around 30km/h at its fastest and I can use it for many hours before I have to recharge the batteries. Electric bikes and scooters are becoming quite common here now and getting ever more sophisticated. Would you buy one?
