Re: What kind of motorized bike should I get?
If you need to ride 17mi/day, I don't think an electric kit will fit your budget unless you have time to recharge during the day. I ride about 24mi/day and recharge my SLAs while at work.
A four stroke kit would work. If it doesn't rain much where you live, installing a friction drive kit is the easiest.
