Hello from North Idaho
Hello to everyone here at motor Bicycling from northern Idaho. I work as a machinist at a decent sized machine shop and just looking to get into a new project area. I've mountain biked a bit in the past but it was almost too much work considering some of the areas that I want to be able to go.
The idea of a cross between a moped and a free ride mountain bike has got me stoked. I don't need to go fast up hill but it would be nice to not kill myself in the process. I was looking at electric but the batteries would be more than half the cost of a bike so back to the proven ICE.
Right now I'm just looking for ideas for a good design and ways to keep it as quiet as possible. Tread lightly and carry a big stick.
