You all sound male and young! LOL Im a middle aged lady who LOVES to ride her bike. I was going to buy a assisted bike(electric) but it would be more trouble than its worth(imagine running out of electric in a middle of a ride?). I really am using it as an assist vehicle. Im in NY which is a no no here I've heard. Im doing a couple of things to make it less noticeable that Im using a engine. One is a cover of some sort...like a front saddle bag thats been cut to fit (no front or back or bottom just the sides) and a gas tank out of a aluminum cup(those coffee style ones)? Don't know if I can actually do that but I would like to try. Also since I will be pedaling that will make it less noticeable too. Anyway I'm here to learn a few things. Nice to be here.
