"We were in Tianjin China visiting a temple and found where the employees park their electric bicycles and electric scooters. We saw these electric scooters all over town, some quite old. I wouldn’t be surprised if they had lead acid batteries.
The weird looking things on some of the handle bars are similar to coats that protect the rider’s hands and chest area from the cold."
Tom also sent a photo of a Neo in China. These are sold as the British MG brand, and are getting good reviews from UK owners. The USA needs to stay at the top of its game!
