Electric Brompton Bike

Electric assisted bikes are not for everyone.  Some say the electric motor takes away the fundamental nature of a bike, which is human powered transportation.  In a way that view is correct.  Nag-bike ka pa.  Mag-Honda Wave ka na lang, di ba?

But electric bikes may be okay for some situations.  Let's say a senior citizen who wants to continue biking, but his legs are not that strong like before.  Or if you live in a hilly area where there are many steep climbs.

If electric bikes are your thing, this is how it would look like on a Brompton.  But be prepared to be set back by another P50,000.00 for the upgrade.
