If you doubt what I stated, you cou can click on the link I provided for his direct comment as well as check the new pricing on Ride1Up's website.Well, it that's true, I guess he will raise his bikes by $250 each ... I don't think so.
Also, my comment specifically said batteries, nothing about bike prices, including the text of the link I provided. But since you mentioned it, Kevin said elsewhere that there may be a 25% price increase on bikes at some point in Sept. It's not definite, yet, but he gave a warning. That's in another thread, and again, I linked directly to his comments there, as well.
