Thanks Deacon.
I am interested in a front hub motor. I talked with a young lady from Crystalite ( I am not sure about this spelling). She did not know very much about the product and had to ask someone for each question I asked. She very nice and polite, but not very helpful. Anyway I am going to pedal a while and see how that goes.

Yeah the hub motor is the way to go if you can afford it. there are some new battery things coming down the line as well. When the new nano filber batteries make it to market I probably will go back to electric.

I honestly don't think I am cut out for gasoline lol. It smells bad rofl

Oh, WELCOME Mr.L

Thanks. I hardly know enough to ask questions, but will prepare a list. This is a great site. Much "laid back". I am a "laid back" man.

Well i cant help much but I use wet cell batteries and a trailer. The sealed lead acid are the cheapest portable but I didn't like them hanging on the bike. That's just me most folks prefer them to lugging a trailer around.

There are newer ones but I think they are a bit pricey not sure though I'm sure the battery man can tell you all about them. This is just the cheap way to go.
