    It's USD1,950 on the website (EURO1,500), so either you've added on some postage costs, or you're getting a bad deal in your country!

    Apologies, but I felt the need to add this:

    I don't think it is cheap at all at $4500 for an attachable power handbike. I can buy a similar quality full bicycle with power for under $2600 (€2000). Here is a link with some of the bigger brands here in Holland.

    I don't know the prices well on attachable manual handbikes, but most seem to be a similar price or less than the attachable powered handbikes.

    What attachable manual handbikes are you seeing that cost $10,000 (€7,700)? That is really expensive!

    The prices I quoted are the prices quoted in Europe. Basically they just swap the US dollar for Euro (€1 = $1.3), and even the UK pound (£1 = $1.5).

    It is a rip-off, even when you factor in sales tax (VAT) and shipping. That is why I try never to buy in Europe if I can buy online from the US, and get so angry when manufacturer's try to prevent that.

    Thanks for letting me know the full specs when you have them TotoL1. I'm keeping track of the specs on our website. We are still waiting for the ZX1 power add-on, but hope to get an attachable power handbike someday also.
