Default North Pole, AK electric bike newbie

Howdy from the frozen north! I just found this site today and decided to join. I want to make an electric bike and started with the idea of using a starter motor. I found info on converting alternators to motors and that sounds like a better idea. Right now I'm researching a pusher trailer vs. bike mount set up. Anyway I get anything going I'll keep you posted.

Welcome from the other end of the USA, the hot south, lots of former Alaskans here including my last boss. I asked why he moved so far south, and he said that either you live in Alaska all your life and love it or if you move, you move as far away as you can, I thought it was funny. Welcome to the forum.
Always do a pre-ride check. Make it a habit, and ride safe.
