Ride an Optibike for Less than $32 Per Month

It is possible to ride an Optibike for three years and have the total cost of ownership be less than $32 per month. You will also burn 15 pounds of fat and have 2 extra hours of  free time per week. (See Table Below).

This amazing result  is based on replacing 3,000 miles per year of car driving with the Optibike. Three thousand miles a year is easy to do. This  is the equivalent of 57 miles per week.  This is easy to do. Replace a few commutes to work or the store per week and you have quickly done 60 miles.

During those three thousand miles you will burn 75,000 calories, which can translate into at least  15 pounds of fat lost.

The time you spend riding the Optibike, is time you do not need to spend exercising. You have replaced dead car commute time with exciting electric bike time and have 2 extra hours of time per week. Exercise has now become an integral part of your life, leading to long lasting health.
