What a minute?! What are you doing here Jerome!? You still paragliding constantly? I used to moderate the paragliding forum under "paraparker" until I smashed my ankle all to hell a couple summers ago. Haven't flown since unfortunately, but will get back into some day as money and nerves allow. Anyway... welcome the world of ebiking! It's also tiny (in the US) just like paragliding!
PS - What are you thinking of for your ebike build?
Hi Parker, It's great to find you here.
Yes, I still paraglide

I almost bought an Optibike, but judged it too expensive for just riding it once a week, not stealthy enough for the paths I ride (noise does not bother me but would draw unwanted attention) and its transport weight too high (can't take the batteries out). Now considering a setup from Hi-Power Cycles
. I have been doing my homework with respect to comparing ebikes: Best electric bike decision matrix
(open with Microsoft Excel). My current project
