After a brief stay in the least hygienic hotel in the whole of the Tenderloin, your correspondent’s first home in S.F. sat atop Telegraph Hill.
At the foot, there were two choices:
Hike, or wait for the once-an-hour bus.
Fist-shake-inducingly absent from this scenario:
Top speed in town: 20 miles per hour. Off road? Sky’s the limit. (Read: about 40.)
Most importantly, it’ll get you up and down our fair city’s hills: Bolt does 50 miles on a single charge.
The batteries are made to last a decade. As for licenses? Not required.
And Bolt’s makers promise us it’s good to go in the rain: “You can actually ride the M-1 under water (assuming it has very low ionic content).”
Hill-friendly, rain-resistant and environmentally friendly.
If the Bolt’s not a bike custom built for S.F., we don’t know what is.
