I generally don’t like posting negative stuff on forums but……

I read as much as I could handle of the PR bullsh*t articles and watched the video trailer on their website but nothing tells the answer to the obvious question, i.e. how they intend to recharge their bikes once well away from civilisation. Three support trucks with generators? Stop for three weeks under a solar panel? So call me cynical but I ask myself, whats the point of this exercise?

We already know a big orange beastie can do the ride they plan. We already know e-bikes can go for x kms on one charge. Treble the battery power and they can go three times as far – not exactly a mindblowing conclusion.

Am I missing something? (I usually am…..)
