    Hmm, I think this Bridgestone is cooler than the one. If you don’t attache the rear option child seat it is a normal bike though… http://mamabicycle.blogspot.com/2011/11/papa-bicycle-new-black-electric-bike.html This is my thought, bye.

    PS, I almost mistook A2B for AKB :).

    I mention A2B’s bankruptcy because of their high profile in the US ebike market.

    What is AKB?

    Ah,,, sorry. Anyway, AKB48 is a kind of monster celebrity in Japan. AKB is an abbreviation of Akihabara in Tokyo. 48 means the numbers of girls’ associates.  Everyone knows the girls in Japan.

    Naruhodo.  I thought AKB might reference Akihabara. I had never heard of AKB48 though. Google that and, umm, wow.
