Have you tried one out? They are pretty sweet. I would be torn between one of these and the one with the seat. Obviously if you're planning to actually do trials you'd get the trials model. I really enjoyed the little bit that I rode them.

Nope, don't know anyone with one. Would love to try one. The Escape has a seat option. For what I'd want to do in trials, this will be a perfect compromise. If I ever get to the point where I get competitive, I'd get another bike. I might be dead before that happens. :lol2:

Ryan Young will be back at the end of sept for the R&T trials school. He may bring EMs again. You could always ask him to...

Neat!
I'm about to pull the trigger on a larger sized OSET. Not quite adult sized but getting there.
I totally plan on riding it around the neighborhood.

He isn't listed as a EM distributor or dealer. No mention of them on his site either. Cyclemax in Gaithersburg is a dealer but I don't think he has any in stock.

What kind of range are we talking here? Price? Can the battery be swapped out for more extended rides?

http://www.electric-motion.fr/en/bikes/EScape/

Per the link above "The EScape boasts the longest range of all our trial models." and the specs say the average range is 2 hrs 45 min.

Not sure what the price is. Guessing about $10K. Don't see where the battery is swap-able.

I really like the EMLite too.
