Default Re: auto shift bikes

I've got a Land Rider auto shift bike. I've installed a Staton crank drive kit. I manually shift the front three gears and the rear seven shift automatically. There's other auto shift systems out there and I was trying to find out if anybody has tried anything with them. I know of one person who tried using the Land Rider rear derailleur on an electric bike but couldn't get it to work right. Two others have put a GEBE on Land Rider bikes. However with this setup their engine can only drive a single ratio. They have 14 gears in which they can peddle assist the engine. Since I use a crank drive system my engine can drive 21 gears and I can also peddle assist in all 21 gears. The 28 ring is the steep uphill gear (8+ mph), the 34 ring is the level ground gear (30 mph) and the 42 ring is the downhill gear (45+ mph).
