The RC lipo runs a trail bike and a hot rod racing bike. Sometimes the RC lipo is carried on a utility bike, to increase range on a weekend ride.

I much prefer all the benefits LiFe04 offers. Ping is rating their new LiFe04 at over 2000 cycles now. One more thing... you discharge LiPo too low and they are ruined. It only needs to happen once. They are very powerful but they are fussy. $500 of lipo can be rendered useless very easily.
