(No word yet re ease of pedaling... for warmth and exercise, but also to save peak outputs at starts, etc.) Sorta worried about my batteries? AKA lowest costs per mile/per day... :wink:

Just gotta wait for folks to trash `em in "accidents"... at least some that might lust after the battery packs. :wink:
