    I am an Englishman living in a remote location near in the Fasano region Puglia. I live in italy for periods of two months or so then return to the UK for a few weeks and then back to Italy, thus I am not qualified to become a resident and cannot insure a car. In England most of the time I use a push bike to travel around my city. I am seriously considering purchasing a pedal assisted electric bike for mobility whilst in Italy. I have to travel down an unmade road for 2k before reaching a pot holed highway. I need an electric bike that withstand continual severe vibration and can travel on one charge not less than 40k and carry at least 20 kilos of shopping. What can you recommend and at what cost. Please no sales propaganda just hard facts. robertpugin@alice.it
