CSC has updated its Blog! http://californiascooterco.com/blog/?p=29515 Some nice bits featured on this bike. The battery is removable and even has a handle on it. Takes about 5 seconds (or less) as mentioned on the blog. Also has convenient spot for the charger where a gas tank would normally be. Really looking forward to it. Still awaiting more real world testing. However it looks like it will do nicely for the dirty city work and my short but horrible 7 mile commute. One thing we have noticed on our e-golf at work is the hills. Normally the range is about 80 miles but go up and down a lot of hills and the range is considerably less. Makes sense considering the amount of energy needed to climb a hill. The City Slicker will be no different but it would be curious to see the penalty on a small machine like this. 20 mile charge @ 35 mph is all I need with hills in mind!
