Default Re: Ontario Bike Engine Owners

I have heard no new news regarding bicycles with motors...doubt we will either because I'm sure the powers that be are hoping we are a short lived fad like the pocket bike thing was. I don't think there is enough of us either to have an impact on things with regards to new laws for us or against us. The e bike community managed to gather enough support and got the e bike pilot project thing happening here in Ontario but one odd thing is that for guys like us that would likely build an e bike from a bunch of parts we can purchase online we'd be in the same situation as we are in right now with the gas motors. Ontario's e bike pilot project does not include a power assisted bicycle that can't prove it meets federal standards, only e bikes that meet federal standards and have a sticker to prove it are included in the pilot project so says the MTO.
