P.S: I'm a huge fan of having the motor interact with the gears. The hub motor option is easiest to implement, but the extra range of gearing that the Cyclone gives allows you to climb really steep hills that otherwise would make a hub motor overheat. For San Francisco the geared approach is the wiser option.

No one cares right now what you ride (as far as the law) as long as you don't get into anyone's way. It will be interesting to see what the future brings... (which side will come to dominate)
