    The best way to 40+mph

    Look at a robin/subaru 1.6 hp 4 stroke. Staton has a great set up. You can buy their kit. I have 1 on my long wheel base recumbent. With the right gearing 35 wide open is possible. I would tone down your desire for 40 mph. 30 cruising on a bicycle is plenty fast.

    A New concept for Motorized Bicycles

    Re: A New concept for Bikes I too have been waiting for the Revo power wheel. Seems very simple and not too expensive. With just one speed it would not have much hill climbing ability. I still think it would be a great addition to a electric hub motor on the back wheel. Heavy bike however...
