New addition to the fleet

Probably not what you're expecting!

They've introduced a rubbish park and ride system at work so in an attempt to avoid having to use it I've bought one of these!

It does about 15mph and it actually gets me through the congestion quicker than the car! It's also very amusing to ride. I'm just a big kid really. :D

Love that - probably about as good as the Z in the snow and ice too!

Funnily enough yes!

It runs on two 12v SLAs. They weigh 3kg each and deliver crap power. I'm going to up it to 36v, use a 350w motor and get it running on lithium batteries to not only save weight but deliver the power better. Should be able to get up to about 22mph! :thumbsup:

Was thinking about fitting some bike disks to it as the current brake is ok but not great.
