I'd done some research and the cheapest of them is $700+.

I'm looking for one that is $100 to $200 maybe? Is there even such a range?. But where to get?! The bike shops near my estate all selling that $700+ range.

Planning to get one for my mother.

Anyone knows of a place that sells them at a lower price?

i've been doing a little research last few months myself

been eyeing the PiCycle

".....Most electric bikes priced less than $xxx..........are aimed at the kid/teen/toy market. They generally lack the performance and durability that people want and expect........"

Eh... this is not Flintstones :think:
No, seriously. Some of these bicycles with a maximum power output exceeding 200 watts are illegally imported without approval from the LTA and with absolutely no electronics speed control or limiter fitted whatsoever.

There is just so much the brake handles can be pumped continuously on what could be an essentially out of control electrical motorbike travelling downhill before the braking efficiency starts fading.

If I may quote Spidey again..

"With great power, comes great braking systems"

Which kind of dodo would design such a bike? I suspect lack of disc brake being used is it?
