I am enthralled with where the world is RAPIDLY moving in the transportation arena.
Lithium Cycles has brought down the price of its all-terrain electric bike to $995. This is a rugged cruiser with fat tires, a comfy seat, and a removable battery pack. It gets 20 miles at 18 mph, and there's a version that get 40 miles at 20 mph.
Want to tour the farm with terriers and tools? Need to go down a long and tiny trail at first light in order to photograph a waterfall at the end of the trail? Want to check fence lines? This might be the ticket.
