    New here, first post.

    Not new to bikes, repair, or construction.
    I have a link to a bike I built on another thread (didn't think it appropriate
    to post my question here, but I have been lurking for a while and have
    greatly enjoyed this forum.

    Trying to build a commuter bike (see my other thread). It's downhill to
    work, and I could use a little boost getting back home. Just looking for
    a small push to help with the pedaling.

    gebe kit is the best, IMO... if you have the cash there isn't any reason to buy anything else.

    Welcome to the forum. How far is your commute?

    How far is your commute

    Well, that's an embarrasing question.
    It alternates every year. A little less than
    two miles. After March 1st it will be a little
    over two miles. Yeah, I guess I should be
    walking but I took a bad fall several years
    ago and tore my ankle pretty good. I was
    off work for many months. However, I had
    planned to use the bike for trips to the store,
    (3 miles) get in better shape, and keep miles
    off my truck. Hoping to reduce my driving by
    4,000 miles/year.

    Ask 10 people and you'll get 8 different answers.
    Do you have a preferrance to where the engine will be located?
