If I would have gotten here back in 2001 and went ahead with my motorization of a bicycle plans which I clearly remember doing. I mocked up a gas engine out of cardboard but was perplexed on how to mount a Princess Auto Honda clone (Power Fist) like USA's Harbour Freight motors) and get it operating. Dont know if the gasser forums were on the web back then, probably.
e-biking brings a smile to my face everyday and I ride year round, in the winter with snow and ice. What I love about electricity is the silence. I can ride in parks, on pathways and no one knows any different. Do some fake pedaling and no one knows. One thing about this "hobby" is DO NOT $KIMP whether thats battery chargers, or the battery itself, or the tools (Digital Multi-Meter, Puller, ebike freewheel remover, soldering iron etc). Also dont wait, do not procrastinate, the sooner you are riding with electricity the happier we are.
