|I came from Brazil to study at the University of Western Australia for a year. Getting around Perth isn’t too hard but it can take long times and it can be difficult to get home at night after 12pm if you’re in the city. I got an electric bicycle and it has made life so much easier and I save lots of time and money. I chose the electric fixie and put a 500W motor on it with a super tube battery. I can travel about 50km if I pedal heaps and about 25km if I don’t pedal much. My ride to university is 9km along Striling highway and it takes me 12 to 16 minutes on my bike depending on how hard I pedal. If I use the bus it takes twice as long and when there is traffic it’s terrible and can sometimes take more than 45 minutes. I love it and am wondering how I can take it back to Brazil.
