We take a look at the new funky e-bikes from California

THIS IS THE Pedego: a retro-funky e-bike costing from $1,695 (£1,100) to S1,875 (£1,220).

The California-based company produces several: a classic cruiser and a cruiser with a step-thru frame. There's even a tandem for two-up fanatics.

All run via a 500W brushless hub motor, controlled by a regular bar-mounted throttle. Juice comes from a 36V lithium-ion battery.

Top speed is in the region of 20mph, with a range of 15 to 30 miles, depending on terrain. A full charge takes around four hours.
