Hey guys, been checking out this forum for a couple weeks now, and finally decided on purchasing a Gebe Tanaka 32cc. kit for my Specialized FSR full suspension bike.

I have been interested in the Gebe kit since the popular mechanics article came out, but for some reason took me this long to order.

I will be commuting to work a couple times a week in a effort to conserve fuel about 10 miles each way, I will also be doing some local fire roads local to me that I have been scoping out every time I ride my bike.

Anyways, happy to be part of the board!

Rob K.

You can view the article here, but it is kind of old.

You don't use the motor while on the bike path or boardwalk do you?
Couldn't imagine getting away with that for too long, but it would be fun!!

How often do you guys ride?

Rob...
