This just barely qualifies as a bike, however, were I still a city dweller relying on the city transit system, this would be a great option. That's assuming everything I needed to carry would fit in a backpack. At just over $300 it's cheaper than many collapsible bike without a motor!
interesting, if they had these in the store i would definitely give them a look. they list 2 others at $399. both marked down from 700+, and a couple in the $799 range marked down from 1499, and i think what's happening is we're beginning to see competition and market saturation driving prices down at the higher price ranges. i'm hoping this trend continues,.

The others are mostly other vendors. Only buy from Walmart on the wally website or risk buying a screw job, and not in a good way.
But, yeah, these are all Chinese imports so at some point someone will buy a slug (100 or more) & accept a 20% profit. The margins are usually outrageous on "green" products. If you look at the Alibaba website - not Aliexpress - you can pick your most desireable bike configuration, request a quotation FOB mainland Red Chine. Some will give shipping quotes. Regardless, you'll see what I mean about the profit margins. If you're Walmart, & going though third party vendors, you also have to pad the price for loss-probability. i.e. stupid people & bad/poor performing lipo batteries.
Chinese chosen names are often odd. Do-Hike, as in if you buy this you will Do (some) Hiking - cuz it don't work
i'm hoping that's not what they were thinking. i'm actually tempted to order up one of these for the LOTH, who has not ridden her huffy ONCE since it got home. maybe a hub motor would make more sense? if i do, there will be a review. we'll see.
lurker: not in jail? youve been slackin. power to the people! (whatever that means)

Admin Czar: Glad to see you're still around, lurkster. This is a good place for work logs & photos. I did have a backlog of russian & chinese spambags waiting for member approval. Just don't see it happening tho

Admin Czar: That is to say, if they want my help, keep the IT/IS people out of my systems. In every case, 100% of the time, incompetent admins (or budgets) are the cause. Since 9/11 guidelines for DCS security have been in place but over time are now ignored.

Admin Czar: No, I'm not dead, in jail or hospital. I've temporarily revived my process controls career. Every gas, water or power entity I've dealt with over 25 years has been cyber attacked. Windows admins are now banned from industrail PLCs & DCS systems.

desertbikes: You can't possibly believe that Not even the rosiest rose colored liberal eye goggles could make that statement flower. It's all a crap fest of political power struggles, hapless pawns, media grooming & money, money & money. It's going to get worse too.

desertbikes: Lets hope, for Cat's sake, that it just a hormonal phase. That was the excuse for everything not long ago. Not acceptable in the post-civil social apocalypse. Oh, and skin color is now THE most important thing about a person. Its hard to keep track.

tomcat65: To those who were concerned: Everything's cool now. Thinking maybe she dreamed about someone else, and is mad at them now? I dunno..

tomcat65: I think she's still trying to figure it out. She's definitely a believer in prophetic dreams.. I'm just staying out of the way

desertbikes: Oh boy. And those witch doctor people can take dreams to be prophetic. Besides, chicks are just crazy. I'll take a dollar for every time I got in trouble for what happened in a woman's dream. There's no defense against nuts.

tomcat65: The Witch Doctor woke up mad at me this morning. Said she had a dream. I might be eating a lot of drive-thru this week. She took off this morning, supposed to be back here by 8:00a.m. for a web meeting. Maybe she'll cool off.. No Idea what she dreamed. lol

desertbikes: "sick" is good in today's lingo. Like "bad" was back in our century. Maybe "old" will be like that someday.

desertbikes: That's a shame. Funny how we can watch videos of dozens of humans getting wasted in grotesque ways but when they pan in on that cute little puppy, we all think, "Not the puppy!!" Is he/she gonna be OK?
