    I saw this at sinan mansions the over the weekend. It's pretty much exactly what I want to do, but I'd make it more stealth. Have the battery covered by a back seat and maybe put a storage box behind that to keep another smaller battery and the controller box inside. Maybe even get a custom scooter style seat to fit from and also cover the rear rack area.

    3 years later, finally found the right bike. Picked it up yesterday.





    I waited 5 years for a bicycle manufacturer to get it right, Specialized delivered a home run on this one.

    I did a pretty technical ride today. 12.8 miles, 2 hours (including a couple stops) 2800 feet of elevation gain and I still had 56% battery left when I got home.

    $5500 USD = ¥37,000

    It sounds like a lot, but you have to consider that you're getting a pretty high end full suspension mountain bike which would probably run close to $4k. The 460Wh battery alone runs almost $1k.
