|My fantastic brother put this electric solar bike kit on my Canondale for me for my Christmas present this year! It’s the greatest present I’ve ever received and I’m loving it. I use it to get from Kingston, through Taroona, into the city and back – about a 25km ride all up. There are many big hills around Hobart and this just flies up them all. I still ride a lot so get a lot of exercise but it makes it so much more comfortable with the electric assistance and is now my first choice of transport for journeys less than around 30km. I generally just ride normally on the flat and only push the throttle from time to time but I hold it full throttle on all the hills and with a bit of pedalling it can get up even the steepest hills around here – and there are a lot of them. It’s a really convenient form of transport and it’s great not to rely on the car so much.
