The companies blockchain network also allows riders to safely share their bikes with other riders, either for free or for a fee.
The Bike is currently only available for purchase and comes with a 24-month limited warranty. The bike’s battery provides 50 miles (80 kilometer) of range per charge; an 80 percent charge takes approximately 90 minutes, while a full charge takes about three hours.
The Bike is priced starting at $108 per month or $3,900 in full. People who want to pre-order the Pave Bike can do so with a $100 deposit.
