Cue the music:
"Bmmmm, bmmmm, bmmm.... Another one bites the dust"
I know it was nearly universally loathed here, but I liked the Pi for its unique design. I like out-of-the-box thinkers. It's harder to do than most people realize. I never rode a Pi and it could have been a dog.
Anyway, looks like it has gone the way of the dinosaur. The road to the future is littered with the carcasses of failed companies. I'm still of the opinion that this is a golden age for the ebike. For people who want to push the envelop (at least in the US), they gain so little attention you can get away with just about anything. I have a $600 battery strapped to my bike with a bungee cord. 30 sec with a utility knife and someone could sell that puppy for several meth hits (I think. I don't actually know what meth costs, but I do watch Breaking Bad religiously.) I can "pedal" my bike at 30 mph past a parking lot full of cops nomming on doughnuts and smile and wave with not so much as a raised eyebrow.
As we say in the research business, "The leading edge is the bleeding edge". Cool design though.
