OSNews, Generic OSes I had the chance to attend the bike industry’s annual DealerCamp in my hometown of Park City, Utah last week. It’s an event where dealers and manufacturers can meet up, and everyone can try the latest bicycle technology on the roads and trails. While there, I took a particular interest in electric bicycles, which were represented by several vendors. Electric bicycle tech has made some major strides in the past few years, but still has a long way to go, in particular on the software side.

Do yourself a favour and stay away from those cheap made in china e-bikes, as they are complete crap and when they break, no repair shop will touch them... believe me, I speak from experience!

Either splurge 2,000+ bucks for a decent model with decent dealer support, or roughly for the same money get a scooter/second hand motorcycle - much more useful proposition. Again, speaking from experience.
