I no longer maintain a four wheel vehicle so there is no danger of needing to load it in a car (because of the cost of insurance, maintenance, taxes, etc). However there are these municipal buses with bike racks on the front bumper :P Otherwise most of trips are under five miles.

I am going to build the light weight bike.
The idea of including the motor assist was inspired by a 30 second Video I saw for the "Leed Pocket Bike Juice".

The big difference is 36 volts allows me the option of using the battery from the other bike for a longer trip.

The difference is I want 36 volts so that I have the option of using the battery from the other bike for a longer trip.

Well I am going to build the light weight bike.
