      Convert the Ego to a 30MPH electric scooter, 15-minute fast charge

      The Ego-2 costs only $1,100 retail. It can be modded to 30MPH with 36
      volts and chain-drive modification.

      With a 15-minute charge, commuting travel becomes a possibility on
      the
      Ego. The manufacturer says it has a 20-mile range, but that is imho
      only for "flat terrain", at perhaps 12MPH, without stops. In hilly
      terrain, stop-go travel, the Ego Cycle 2 may have a range of 8 miles,
      depending on rider weight and cargo carried.

      The Ego has an advaatage over 500-watt ebikes, EVT and "Vespa"
      scooter: The Ego-II can
      pull a bike trailer UPHILL, with 100 lbs. of cargo, e.g. overdue
      books,
      groceries, etc. Also, with a trailer, the rider is safer imho from
      car
      drivers, who sometimes play "chicken" with cyclists.

      The Ego-II, when made more reliable with chain drive and other mods,
      imho is the most practical means of electric biking. No other
      electric
      bike, moped, or scooter, imho, comes close to delivering a package at
      such an affordable price.

      With these mods, comparable scooters like the EVTs costs over $2,500
      and weight nearly twice as much. The EVT requires license/insurance,
      and cannot be parked on sidewalks, like the Ego-II, which is viewed
      as
      a bicycle in most jurisdictions.

      The chain drive modification is offered on eBay, Item number:
