How do these bikes work? They are equipped with a removable battery that the rider un-latches and takes in to a garage/ home / office/dorm room to plug into a conventional electrical outlet to charge. Once charged, the bike can go up to 30 miles before needing to be recharged. Hybikes can be ridden anywhere bikes can be legally ridden, and are subject to bicycle regulations. They go a safe 20 miles per hour, allowing for safe handling and braking.
No driver's license is needed, and the vehicle is covered on traditional homeowner's insurance policies. They provide a substantial advantage for students and professors on college campuses, as they can be ridden and parked close to classrooms. This is an advantage over traditional automobile parking, which is nearly as costly as tuition in some cases, and the automobile lots may be as far as a half mile or more from the center of campus. In situations where both automobile and bicycle transportation is desired, Hybikes fit into many automobile trunk spaces, or can be transported with a traditional bike rack attached to automobile or commercial bus.

The body frame, wheels and housing are more substantial than any of their cheaper counterparts, and the entire machine is locked and inoperable when either the key or the battery is removed.

In this area, for example, a commuter can use his or her electric bike from Tempe to Scottsdale, Mesa to Glendale...all are a reasonable and timely commute combining public transportation with the flexibility of Hybikes.
