The Pedego Comfort Cruiser (pictured above) is another e-bike that lets you choose between the healthy route (peddling) or the lazy route (cruising on electric power). The bike will set you back about $1,500 but seems to be a well built machine.
Read on for more details and video after the break.
The bike is equipped with a rear-hub motor, which is incorporated inside the rear rim, and a lithium battery that has enough juice to power the bike for about 30 miles at up to 20 miles per hour. The battery is detachable, allowing you to quickly take it off for recharging. Pedego says the battery can go from completely dead to fully charged in 4 hours.
Of course, sans battery, the bike can be used just like a regular bike. You can always power it the traditional way and use the battery power just to ease the pedaling when cycling in rough terrain.
The Pedego Comfort Cruiser bikes are available in two versions, one for men and one for women. Each version comes in 12 color combinations, including black with pink wheels, white with mint green wheels, or orange with orange wheels. The bikes can also be customized with accessories such as baskets, bells, and cup holders.
