I've heard a lot of great stuff about the BionX and how it turns a regular bike into a super efficient electric hybrid bike. Being on the taller side (6 feet 2 inches), I knew that BioxX would probably be the best option for me if I were ever to go electric because I already have a great bike that fits me well. I took our BionX 350 equipped Dahon Matrix out for a test ride to see if it was really right for me. Turns out, I can't seem to think about anything else!
