Please post your opinions and what you have tried.
I noticed that the remaining Zenn in Santa Cruz was advertised $2000 less yesterday. I read further that it needs batteries, and they would install brand new ones for just $2000. Very promotional.

I had a City-EL 48V 3--wheel. Disaster keeping it running without an Electric Doctorate Degree. Parts, distant manufacturer, tires not allowed in the US. I sold it, and sure enough; it broke down immediately.

What did work was my E-Pod hub motor in 2007. The 5 little clutches in the planetary are slipping now- over 3 years later. 36V on a much smaller scale than my City-EL. Still holds cruising speed with a slight acceleration slip;.
