I've been looking for a way to convert a bike to e-bike

    Electric bikes seem to be in the thousands of dollars. I'm researching do-it-yourself options and will let you know what I find. There on some products online that sound promising, like this one. Do you think there is enough interest in electric bikes to start a website or club?

    I used this on a regular pedal bike, you just replace the front wheel. It's about equivalent to one person-power.

    Good for about 20miles if you also do some pedaling.

    20 miles with a little bit of peddling is good, especially with some help on hills
