My friend has one and let me ride it the other day. *sob* Now I covet one sooooo much.

That bike is really good looking! I was ambivalent about electric-assist bikes, but now that I actually no longer own a car and am doing all my errands by bike, I can begin to see a place in my life for something like this--especially one as thoughtfully designed as the Sanyo seems to be.

You might cure yourself of this expensive desire by riding it uphill with a flat battery. :-)

I went looking, and at least one version of the bike weighs about 50 lbs. This is only slightly heavier than my Omafiets. True, I wouldn't want to ride her up a typical San Francisco hill, even in lowest gear, but I could walk her up.

"Only slightly heavier than a bicycle which is itself enormously robust and reliable" strikes me as damning with faint praise. :-)
