    At first glance, it seems pretty neat. 14.6 pound removable battery pack with a bunch of charging options (onboard, standalone, removable pack) The bike is targeting city commuter folk who don't necessarily have access to a power source near parking.

    It doesn't say how heavy the battery pack is though, so i wonder how portable the pack really is...

    I think someone posted it was 14.6 pounds. Let me dig out the quote.

    Here it is:

    Er...Yeah. That __Tango guy is pretty smart...when he's not being a dumbass.

    I had originally read the specs as the battery pack was 14.6 pounds, but that's actually the frame.

    BTW Dave, you better watch out or i'm gonna come up there and rewire that relay of yours. :-P

    You're welcome anytime. Might want to wait until summer though. The temperature gets all the way up to the mid 70's.

    Is summer measured in hours or does it actually last more than one day?

    Mid 70s doesn't sound like summer to me.

    It goes Winter - Break Up - Summer - Where Did The Leaves Go? - Winter Again. Summer is about 4 months, with one good month if we're lucky. This can be any one of the 4. Winter is about 7 months.

    It's just right for me. Although I wish winter was the mid 70s as well.
