I am thinking to the Roaster V2 , removing the battery for a bigger one in a bag attached to the frame.
It's a class3 Ebike easy to put in your car. The range seems small if you ride fast but with a bigger battery ๐Ÿ˜...
Could be interesting to built my own, with a 20$ old bike and 250-350 kit ๐Ÿ™„?
My Lectric XP3.0 is to heavy to put in my Jeep. I could do it if needed but not the best.

You can get the Roadster with an extra battery that looks like the water bottle and installs in 20 minutes. I think it is an extra 300 US?
 
You are right is an option too, however:
The extra battery is only 7AH 14AH for 300 USD: a 15AH battery cost 150 USD in Ebay + 20 for the bag ๐Ÿ™„ ...
It's easier to charge one battery...
Nb: If you remove the original one no balancer needed for the 2nd one (80 USD)...

Not a big fan of the battery in a bag look but fair enough ;)
 
Good looking bike for the flats. Clean lines. I would need some gears.
 
I ordered one yesterday and the delivery will be Friday ๐Ÿ™„ .
800$ seems to be a fair deal, preowned one are always over 650 :(
most of the time not the small frame.

Nice lookin machine Vinny. A guy could blend right in with the spandex crowd no questions asked! ;)

I wrote them a letter and told him that if they had a bike with a bigger battery, that would be a winner and sell a lot more but all they cared about was the stealth aspect. Bought a Yamaha with 80 mile range instead.
 
I use to ride every day my XP3.0 Lectric but I miss the bike spirit. I love it but it's heavy and not easy to load in my jeep.
I expect little less than 20 miles with my Roaster as you could ride it without power o_O. It's battery management :cool:.
 
Nice bike.

I came across an ad for a Velotric T1 ST. Torque sensor, hidden wires, concealed frame battery for $1099. More weight though at 36 lbs, but still lighter than most of mine.

considering the 3p battery as a 10 ah unit is stretching things a bit,i would figure it to be around 7-8 ah unless those are very good cells,i magine they would be plenty though you seem to be a pretty strong rider.
