I've been checking it out. The new version of Swytch is still pending. I'm on their wait list which says I'll get 50% off when it's ready. I have had a basic Specialized bike for several years, about a $500 bike I think. Nothing fancy, but I like my Specialized bike. I might try the Swytch on it when it's ready.

One of the things about the battery is that it can be fast charged in about 2 hours. Its range is about 31 miles. When I start riding longer distances, about 50-60 miles, I can stop for lunch and a short nap while charging it and then continue my ride with a full charge. :)

Just ordered! Hopefully will receive it in January. Ordered 30km battery! In the mean time, while waiting for my kit to arrive, I am upgrading my tires and handlebars, plus I will be hunting down a used set of fenders.

Glad you were able to order because as you know their servers have been overwhelmed. My latest email at 11:00 a.m. west coast time said "Over 16,000 of you have successfully placed an order today." Wow! But even with a big discount, I'm not sure 30 km (about 18 miles) is worth it. And I would imagine that the advertised 30km is more like 20km (about 8 miles) in real life situations for many people. Thus I decided not to go through with the order.

This will be my going to work, church, library, etc bike. I have a KBO Breeze for long distance. I am also thinking of getting a second bigger battery so when and if I want to take my modified bike (which fits me better) on a longer trip, I can do so. Ends up to be costly.... I have done a lot of modifications to my KBO, but it is still a much heavier bike.

I just realized it does NOT come with a throttle or any kind of monitor (speed, distance, battery level, etc.) Those are extra. The $$$ is slowly inching up!
