I learned of electric bikes about a month ago. Before then I was in the clouds. Just purchased a Volt Mariner August 2016 6th. It folds & fits in my car! It has fat tires! It's a head turner. I have been long dreaming of commuting by bike but live in hilly North Vancouver BC... (all the regular excuses applied why I didn't). I can happily say I have success... well at least for day 1. You will probably find me in the Volt forum asking questions.
