Let's get these bikes to North America ASAP!
Well if its under $5k that's not too much of a premium price.... Guess we'll have to wait for USA pricing.We don't have the official pricing just yet, but keep in mind an entry Bosch bike runs about 4K, add a belt drive, a Nuvinci and a Speed drive; 5k seems about right. We should have more details soon.
Try Googling SMART electric bike ... I think the first ones arrived in Portland, Oregon not long ago. Even with our weaker dollar I paid close to $2950 USD in Vancouver, BC Canada. Outstanding value and service in my experience. Also try www.youtube.com/watch?v=oScQAULOeOADHS - Do you have any details on that SMART bike? It seems like the numbers might be off. None of the Mercedes dealers in this area know anything about them.
Yeah, I'd love to test ride one of these during the East Coast trip. If you hear anything Chris please let me know! I did some searching yesterday but came up short, couldn't find any dealers East of Colorado with the bike for testing.DHS - Do you have any details on that SMART bike?

Focus make really good bikes I have a belt drive and it is really great bike to ride even after getting of my electric monster !!Since we're on the subject of beautiful German engineered bicycles I want to call out the Focus Jarifa Offroad Premium XT. Just had the chance to test ride and review this at the New Wheel in SF. This thing is powerful, smooth and beautiful (though not quite as artistic in nature as the Grace bikes). I love how "engineered" these things are vs. just slapped together with generic parts.
