The helmet stank of manufacturing chemicals - I opened a visor and stuck a fan in the neckhole and ran it a few days until it went away.

Vectrix has a bright future ahead!
On the 6th of November 2009 GoldPeak Batteries International announced the acquisition of all assets

Good to hear you like it!oatnet wrote:For more than a month, I've been riding my Vectrix to work every day, and I love it. It is way more stable/comfortable at 60mph than any of my ebikes at 40mph, plus I get to wear a full-face helmet without looking foolish. I've put just over 500 miles on it so far.
Sorry, too bad on the rebate. Another strategy would be to check with Vectrix on the particular dealer/warranty before a purchase.oatnet wrote:I was disappointed to be rejected for the $1,500 California rebate. Vectrix says my dealer is not an authorized dealer (so I don't have the 2-year warrantee CARB requires for the rebate), even though they were listed as such on the Vectrix website the day I bought it and for months afterwards. Vectrix made many other changes on their website so they were keeping it updated, so I guess it made them look better to buyers to list 20 California dealers instead of correcting it to the (2) they still acknowledge. I guess the lesson for potential vectrix customers is to WAIT until Vectrix gets their biz gets sorted out as well as Brammo and Zero have.

Someone in Europe posted that they have announced plans to go to LifePO4 and make kits available for upgrading older versions.oatnet wrote:If you look sharp, you can probably find an '07/'08 sitting at a dealer for under 4k. I'd pay 4k but not 8k unless they go LifePO4.
