Electric folding/non-folding bicycle

Postby leo » Sun Nov 20, 2011 2:21 pm

Hi parents,

does anyone have any experience in electric bicycles? good/bad? Where did you get it from and how much is the price? Does the batteries break down/need replacement often?

Am thinking of getting one myself to ferry my DD around because one of her enrichment will be at a place with limited carpark lots and not quite accessible by bus.

How old is your DD?

Do you know that LTA requires all riders to be 16 or older?

Mm., thanks for the info. I suppose when they say riders they refer to both the person riding and the one during behind.... (though I do see many parents getting their kids that w ay)

If your lift is to your level, no problem. Mostly are Taiwan brands, the bicycle shop near Waterloo street does sell. BTW, is there electric folding type?

Its a matter of start slowly and build up the stamina. Can treat it as exercise too. If you are worry cycle on road, check your routes, there might be park connectors cycling tracks. Go the national park website to check the maps of all park connectors.

"only low-powered models of motorised bicycles which are approved by LTA and affixed with an LTA seal, are allowed on public roads"

I still see people riding those motorised bicycles, NO LTA seal on the pedestrian walkway.
