Fancy beach bike
« on: August 20, 2019, 06:27:57 AM »
Presented as a MTN bike, so maybe salty sand is not a good environment?

The name caught my eye because I had a Parilla 125 racer in the 70's - sold it to a guy in OZ.

Yup, very pretty, but underpowered for the price. I've been seriously considering one of these, but I've got too many toys as it is. Maybe after I get rid of a few things.

2KWH hot-swap battery, 5000 watt motor. $3300 bucks. Twice the range, five times the power, less than half the price. And you can get them with a belt drive vs chain. You can actually stick pedals on it, and turn the power down to whatever your local law requires. Then go off-road and be a hooligan. Not nearly as pretty, but...
