Default Another hello from Hobart Australia

I've been a member as HybriPed for a few weeks but I've decided to close that down because that is my business name and I could see a conflict looming down the track.

Gaft - stands for Greg at Fern Tree

I work as a civil engineer in Hobart.

Also, I am enthusiastic about motorized bikes. I believe that they are very underrated as a serious mode of transport. And of course, they are largely prohibited in Australia.

With a couple of other guys, we are putting together a lunchtime display of motor-assisted pedal cycles in downtown Hobart on Tuesday. We'll be displaying a 2-seater petrol-assisted HPV which recently achieved 160 kms/litre in a HPV trial in November last year, a couple of electric-assisted bikes and several engine-assisted bikes. It should be interesting.

Cheers, Greg
