One of my mates bought a Stealth B-52 electric bike a few years ago and absolutely loves it, around suburbia it's quite a bit quicker than my car, I'd love one myself but don't see myself paying the 8k tag to get from the US :faint: http://www.stealthelectricbikes.com/stealth-b-52-bomber/

Not for me! :Pout:

I'm still riding an old-school non-suspension steel frame mountain bike with old-school knobbly tyres and old-school dynamo powering old-school incandescent globes but I'm not old-school  :whistler:

Gotta work hard to reap the benefits!

You can still keep fit on those Stealth bikes Gonz, the more you pedal the more regenerative power that is sent back to the battery and you can go even further :)

The bloody thing weighs about 60kg's so you can stop at the park and bench press it :D

Eye pic's don't show?

i went for a 26k ride with the group yesterday, i joined the easier slow pace group, there was a really fit fast pace too but as we all did same distance same tracks & beaches . i was stuffed as have not been out on pushy much since riding motor bike home plus cleaning house and bike. but i loved that ride! some hard rough hill's both down and up, but beautiful country we saw a lot of Black Swans on a lake road along a nice beach, just had waves come up and went through salt water, hope no damage. i washed bike off after. just shows how riding each day up hill's helps your fitness, as last time i was doing big hills easy, this time they were harder. legs and arms sore after but ok today. my mate took his Specialized hard tail turbo it has a good rockshox front end you have to peddle but it gives you assistance he made hills look easy, it looks and handle like a normal hard tail 29" fat tyre mountain bike not like the normal run of electric add on's that you don't need to peddle, you have to peddle & shift gear like normal just it gives you a bit of help. but $5k too much for me!!
hope daze can show some of pic's as was a nice ride

@Lakes  Pictures added.

@eye30

Lester, you haven't posted them as image links. You really should try Imgur (it's so much easier and quicker than PB)

We did the first ride last week.
I stopped to take a photo of a woodpecker we spotted in a part by chance.

Gee you've lost some weight Misha. I went from 95 kg to 77kg when I was with Nateah's Mum! She was 19 years younger than me!  :evil:

I know this is a big event on aussiekeith's calendar but I'm not sure if he rode this year, given his leg problem.
My son entered last year and decided to try for the 160klm distance this time.
I know he survived but not sure how far he went. Whatever he did, he's earned a decent donation for MS from us.
Just looking at his Strava results now.

An accident on the freeway and a flooded alternate route meant I had the only wheels turning on my ride to work this morning. Take that, 5000 idling cars. :happydance:

Yeah I know! I was only joshing. I used to ride a pushy to work when I was in the bank. I can remember a memorable ride home one Friday night after drinks! :winker:
