    Hey guys...just registered. A long time reader...this is my first post (well, second, you can go check out my intro post in the hello's section).

    I'm from Brooklyn and have been seeing a bunch of these flykly electric bikes around...I checked the website (flykly.com) and they look pretty cool--they say you don't need a license, registration or insurance to ride, which is obviously a plus.

    Anyone seen or heard about these? Any thoughts?

    This would probably work well in cities since it only has a 40 mile range between recharge. Would only work in cities with good bike lanes, like mine. Still the cost seems pretty darn high... I mean wouldnt a used gas bike work better for cheaper? All said, I wouldnt be interested. I think its a novelty mostly.

    I'd like to have one in case the power went out nationwide.
