    I am over in Claremont, I am building a new frame for this season, it will probably be another two or three weeks before I am riding again.

    from what i read before, helmet, follow traffic laws, don't be an idiot.

    basically if it's home built, has 2 wheels, and doesn't do highway speeds, NH doesn't care as long as you're not endangering yourself or others.

    NH doesn't have a registry for them. but here's some readin for ya.,

    If it has pedals and less than four wheels it is considered a bike so follow all bike rules and enjoy. I actually have an email from the State DOT that I ride with just in case. Never been stopped, but I don't get stupid either. Cops usually grin and wave when I put by.

    As a side note you can get a salvage title for your bike and register as a moped, but then you are illegal on bike paths, but you get a cool license plate.

    I live up in the sticks lots of hills, bumps and cracks in the road but no bike paths or road shoulders to ride.Lots of dirt back roads to explore.So a plate would work for me just to keep the local back woods fuzz of my tail.dnut

    If you do go the plate route be prepared for lots of running around as the desk help at the DMV is usually lost as to what you will need, and getting getting some one in to "inspect" your bike to get the salvage title may be a run around as well, and once it has a plate it will need to be state safety inspected, head light, turn signals, horn, etc. It is all doable but i did not think worth the head ache.
