Charger 18 20 $695 http://www.electricbikessys.com Comments on Charger range
Here is the review
Direct drive, 4 hours to charge, 65 lb weight, password used to turn it on (!), motor disconnects when coasting - n regenerative braking, can apply up to 4 times human power for assisting - doesn't ride without pedaling

Ebike 15 20 $995   According to the specs, this is the Rolls Royce of electric bicycles - with front suspension and cruise control (!) Surprisingly, the price is about the same as most other electric bicycles!

Raleigh Select ? ? ? 0115 942 0202 (UK) Idea similar to Charger - "reads your energy input and automatically doubles the output" So far it seems to be available in U.K. only. Also, they won't send catalog outside of the country - can somebody in U.K. give me a hand, so I can put info from the brochure online ?

REVI 15 30 $2497 (down from $2995) (770) 664-6559 Maker says, high price is due to sturdy design and high capacity batteries (and this is true, no other electric vehicle listed here can go 30 miles on a single charge). They also said that this vehicle can't go faster than 15mph, even when going downhill. This one doesn't make sense to me.
