The Giant Twist Freedom DX is, in the words of the reviewer, impressive. It is a new breed of power-assist bicycle with a smart brain that delivers power smoothly, the bike looks nearly standard and it has an amazing 70 mile range in economy mode!
Yes, it is a tank at 63 pounds and it costs $2000 but if it is the first of the next generation bikes then the future is very bright indeed. I don't think the bike is right for me (call me a masochist, I like pedaling) but this kind of bike could open up the sport to a whole new demographic and that's not a bad thing at all.
Check it out, this is a very cool way to look at it up close.
