I'm sure Jeff and Grace will find a way for payment you are comfortable with - give them a few days as they get tons of emails. The only weight on the bike if you want to ride unmotored is the mount (less than 200 grams). Even with the battery and motor it is 4.5 or 6.5 lbs (depending on which battery you get). If you've got a nice lightweight bike, I can't imagine throwing 15-20 pounds worth of "electric" on it; that is basically doubling my bike's weight. Keep us posted on your adventure =).Usually I make purchases with my credit card only by phone as once I was hacked. I do not find any business phone contact. I did email One Motor so I am hoping to purchase via phone. Thanks again Lin about the Hilltopper weight, I sent back a LEED 350 Watt front hub kit for that reason, too much weight.
