Leggo my eGo

Off-topic a bit: just saw a blurb about the “new” eGo electric bicycle, we’ve had an older model sitting in our office for a few years. It’s pretty neat, and well-made, but the caliper brakes were a bit dodgy, it’s ridiculously heavy, and it has no suspension (our neighborhood is an industrial pothole warzone). I see the newer version has a small disk brake, so if you live somewhere with little traffic, no stairs, and nice roads (summer house, retirement castle) it’d be a pretty good choice for short trips. Then again, a regular bicycle is probably faster and definitely cheaper, and you’d get some exercise.
