no, i haven't tried it.. but i would like to try to ride it and i want to know the feeling of riding with an electric bike..Maybe it so expensive to buy one like that. But I don't think we have an electric bike here in the Philippines. I only tried riding on non electric bike, a mountain bike and as far as i have experienced, it so really great and as i remember i am so happy when someone will ride on my back specially when my loved ones will hold my hips tightly and spending long time with her riding on a bike. If i only have enough money, i would like to buy an electric bike.

But the electric bike it so cool and it is environment friendly and imagine it can use as long as three days..I think only rich people can buy that kind of stuff because of its price so expensive but worthy..Thanks for the info webzap i try to browse it the site which you are given..

I have had to stop riding bikes due to a tailbone problem. I may be looking into an incline bike in the future but hadn't heard of this electric bike??? What is that and where do I find info on it? I've wanted for a long time to get a Rhoades car which is a four wheeled bike and comes in one, two or four seat varieties. They also have an optional electric motor that you can have installed. The only trouble is the cost...around $5000!!! I think I'd rather have an electric golf cart for tooling around town. It has a canopy to keep the rain off me and room for my daughter and groceries.

The golf cart is less expensive, too. I found one locally for only $700.

This e-bike thing is one of my plans in the future to have. Although I have not tried it, but then I think I can go places with less expense in electric charges. And besides, it is noiseless and has a speed of up to 60kwh. The only thing that concerns me is whether this e-bike can go uphill without any hitch. With regards to exercise, I can always go with my conventional pedal-driven bike.

Yes you can go up hill or down hills which is good that's why I thought of getting one they are really great,The only thing that bothers me is the price, cd

If you don't have good stamina, then an electric bike will probably be fine for you. You can pedal the bike when on the level, but still have the power of the motor to get you up hills. If it works for you, go for it!

I don't ride a bike, and in today's traffic would not be inclined to take up ridding again. However, if the traffic were safe, I think the exercise would be good. As for an electric bike, well I'm not sure, but good luck which ever way you go, daisy.

I haven't tried an electric bike yet, but I think it might be quite useful. Riding one would not be quite as good exercise as riding a regular bike, but the electric power will let you travel further without exhausting yourself...quite helpful if you're biking to work or to a shop or running other errands.
