Re: A Cops perspective....
I debated between building an electric hub motor bike or the 2 cycle gas bike for a couple reasons.
1, Riding an electric assist bike on the bike trail probably would not be an issue.
2. I wondered if the police would scrutinize the electric bike as they would the noisy gas bike.!!
I built the gas 2 cycle bike and it works well but I am still not sure of the legality around here. (Ohio)
