Re: Electric bikes

We have had great luck with electric stand up scooters.
Our's are all aluminum at 24 lbs, but they make a carbon fiber model at 13 lbs.
No oily chains.
Fast and Fun.
Folds up small for dinghy ride or locker storage.
No need to lock them as we fold them and put them in the shopping cart.

I love the scooters.. I have one.

Illegal in the UK for roads or sidewalks.

That's a great idea! Not as much range as a good bike, but certainly enough for most uses, and it's small and light!

Re: Electric bikes

I imagine most want a bike though so they can carry luggage.

A bike with a set of panniers will carry a fair amount of provisions. More if like a scooter you wear a backpack too.
