They actually published this “review” on their site?

I have a ball silently gliding past these other bike club jocks over here, not saying a word but inevitably hearing one of them exclaim something. What I do is to pedal furiously and get up to well over their speed and then coast past them, still pedaling and simulating very heavy work. Much fun!

@salty,
That is pretty awful! The person who wrote that probably drives an SUV!
The bikes are pretty fast, I think they won a competition at Pike’s Peak. I don’t consider these bicycles as a class of vehicle, more like a moped. Some of the crazier ones I have seen (online only) are loonng travel big hit rigs, with high wattage motors. Kind of like a lightweight electric dirt bike with pedals.

Looks like fun to me.
