Dockless bike share services in China are under a huge cloud critical that too many are built and demand too low as mountainous graveyard is collected.

I went to the event, and I tried the new electric niceride bike. These are going to be a gamechanger. They're so easy and fun. According to the staff on site, all the docked bikes are being switched out with ebikes.

I've considered buying an electric bike because they are interesting and fun, but the niceride bikes will be cheaper and more convenient for my use case.

After trying the bike I think these will be extremely popular. I hope they can manage to keep all the stations stocked.

The main drawback in the original green bikes was that 1. they were heavy, and thus 2. were geared very short. If they can offset the weight with some e-assist, that's outstanding. Ebikes are great.

Felt like this thread was the most appropriate... but...

The second Minneapolis eBike Challenge is being postponed until October.
