    I don’t go on many hills but the video definitely sold me! I know there is one client that I tend to that is at the top of the hill. I definitely could have used this when I was riding a fixed gear with a 48/16 gear ration.

    What about when you are NOT on a hill? I’m torn. OTOH, my first reaction is “super cool.” OTOH, I think more and more “what a waste.” Torn.

    excellent video. and style points for the helmet. only change i would make would be to move product intro to 4/1. it is a joke, right?

    Quite hefty piece of machinery there (75 lbs!) and only lasts 10-12 miles on full charge. That would only last me one way on some of my commutes.
    Still a good concept – plus the added storage capacity is nice.

    It’s nice to see that Shaggy still gets work after Scooby Doo was cancelled.

    75 lbs unloaded? That’s a lot of dead weight to haul around when the battery dies.

    Neat thing about it: you buy additional hitches and controllers and add an electric boost to more than one bike. Looks a lot more practical than switching over a single bike to being an e-bike (with one of those hub motor/wheel combinations) for about the same price.

    Sorry about the confusion!
    The trailer weights 42 lbs and can CARRY 75 lbs. I’ve pulled it home after exceeding 12 miles and it rolls along without much effort.

    Initial installation is ~12 minutes, then it hitches on/off in about 20 seconds. And it hooks up to cruisers, hybrids, recumbents, full suspension, and trikes.

    Many commute with it and avoid a shower at the office. Sooo much better than driving :)

    Ride On

    Thank you Mark for the response. It’s nice to see a new company / vendor actually following proper etiquette for a change.
    42 lbs is certainly better than 75 and the new battery looks like it would address some of my weight to range issues
