    Hey Guys,

    I am thinking out loud.

    A Diesel Electric train uses the engine to turn a generator in order to power the electric MOTORS.

    (Here is another example of the engine/motor definition)

    Imagine having a similar setup on your bike.

    Would it be a gas engine assisted bicycle or would it be considered an electric assisted bicycle?
