    Electric vehicles (Scooters, Bikes, Skateboards) are great alternatives to driving point a to point b on the daily. I use an esk8 and love it. Takes roughly the same amount of time as driving but it's infinitely more fun and I get to enjoy the outdoors rather the inside of my car. Good for the environment too. I'd highly recomend looking into it if you can.

    Fitness is completely separate for me.

      How so you charge them? Hydro or solar?

        even if it ran on petrol, it would be substantially less.

        even if the power comes from a the least efficient commercial coal power plant , it's going to be substantially less take than production for the fuel to move a 4 stroke engine carrying a 1,500kg vehicle.

        There's always one…

        Much like food, it's not always about choosing the healthiest option, it's about choosing a healthier one. Skateboard vs Car impact on the environment travelling over the same distance is not even close to comparable. Even if I was to walk, that would be a burden as I need energy to function and the energy sources come at cost.

          This isn't a skateboard though, it uses fuel.

    no white, and ive seen these things choke on very modest hills

    I wonder if we will ever find a way to import cheaper Xiaomi himo bicycles in Australia. it's just a shame how much cheaper these bikes are in China compared to AU.

      it's just a shame how much cheaper these bikes are in China compared to AU.

      What is it as a proportion of the average salary of an Australian vs Chinese ?

      •  

        Lol. That's a silly question as its the same bike sold there for cheaper. I don't think iPhone are that much more expensive in au compared to China why should electric bike be.

          How much is a kg of rice in Australia vs China?
          How much is a can of baby formula in Australia vs China?

          I bet they are not the same…

          The price is determined by how much people are willing to pay…

    …ironically these come with pedals but youll hardly need them

  •  

    Looks pretty usable but will my manliness be questioned if I ride this around Sydney streets?

    •  

      This might be one of those cases where “if you have to ask, then yes” applies.

  •  

    I was looking at buying one of these when I spotted it for around the $850 mark on eBay (its no longer listed now by that seller).
    If was around the sub $500-$600 mark I'd totally get one.. i just can't justify this price tag :-/

    •  

      I was looking at the Fortis too, however when you look at the weight. 27kg vs 14.5kg. You want to be lugging that around?

    •  

      This is a lot tidier, with the battery being inside the tube. That said, the Fortis has disc brakes which the Xiaomi EF1 does not. :( It also has a pannier rack and kickstand already built in.

        The Fortis battery is about twice the capacity of the Xiaomi one…

  •  

    It's a bitch to take the rear wheel off to change out the inner tube… Ask me how I know. :(

    •  

      how long did it take? :P
      …what about a 'ghetto' tubeless setup? you may never have to repair a flat ever again?

      •  

        My friend helped me and it probably took us half an hour as we reviewed the video. You'd still need to replace the tyre, which means going through the same BS all over again. :(

        At the moment I run something like Slime to hopefully reduce deficiencies.
