Hi All, The Royal Mail story seems to have gone quite lately but last week I thought I saw a postie on an electric bike, it was a very fleeting glimpse of a very shiny and obviously brand new bike with what looked like a front hub motor about the size of that used in the Torq. It had a PO red frame and the usual panniers but as I was driving I was unable to take in any more detail. I was beginning to think I must have been mistaken when yesterday a friend told me he had seen a postie on an e-bike, he knows very little about e-bikes but said it had a battery container within the main frame triangle which he likened to a carrier bag hanging from the crossbar. Like the bike I saw he described it as brand new looking with a red frame and panniers, but he also noted that the postie was making no effort to pedal, so most likely not a pedelec. I haven't heard anything about a contract being awarded so it's possible a small number of bikes are being trialed. Does anyone else know anything?
