Anyone got any experience with ebikes?

Post by DrF » Thu Jul 05, 2018 11:01 am

As title really looking at building a ebike of some sort to get around the obscene traffic on 3 mile drive.
2 hrs per day sitting about in the heat has drove me to it, it can be cut down to 10/15 mins on bike loads of road can be cut out.

There's a deadly steep hill on the way, steep enough to make the local diesel cars start puffing so I assume that's going to be my biggest issue all that power for my "plus size" ass :lol:

Decent batteries seem to be the biggest limiting factor, the cost can get out of hand right fast.

Any one got any experience in this sort of thing?

There is 2 kind of people: one thinking about moving to Mars after here becomes too bad, the others thinking about how to keep this planet habitable.
