These are a Chinese invention made for electric bikes-not Honda Waves etc.

I see heaps of them here in Jiangsu province but few if any in Beijing

" I would think one couldn't do more than about 30 km/hr with them, probably collapse on the rider at higher speeds."

 

Not at all.

My g/f's one has a sign that suggested it was successfully wind tunnel tested to130kph.

 

I'll see if i still have the sign to show you.

You believe everything you read? What speed have you or she got up to with it?

These look to be a lot more solidly constructed than the plastic film ones I've seen around Chiang Rai. Although I do wonder what how that thicker plastic would perform in an accident. Interesting both riders don't seem to feel the need for helmets.

Ah, so the French have put their faith in the safety of a German product. Interesting.

We tend to always do this, sometimes quite wrongly, though.

I tend to agree. Dismounting quickly in an emergency situation would be fairly hard.
