As if we weren't getting enough exercise already, these electric bikes from Schwinn are going to push us over the pound cake precipice into the valley of cheese doodles and s'mores below. The bikes have a Plug'n Drive system which charges in four hours and gets around 40 miles (more if you actually pedal hard).

The Schwinn weighs around 40-45 pounds and the battery is held behind the seat, under the cargo-area. At first glance it's hard to see that this is an electric bike, which is probably the intent. Nobody wants to be congratulated for biking only to have your congratulator say, "oh, it's an electric."
