Hello Everyone!



I am looking forward to learning alot on the site!
I must first give props to GEBE for turning me on to this site to begin with.

Ironically, my lack of service or as Clark Howard refers to it as "Customer No-Service" from GEBE is what led me here.

I do not want to "trash" anybody's business.
I joined this site to find a way to motorize a bicycle & it still perform/remain a bicycle when need be.

Currently I am looking for an alternative to the GEBE setup I purchased last August.
It has not delivered the type of performance I thought/desired it would.
(Especially as PRICEY as the kits are!)

Furthermore, I can't really "chew the fat" with anyone as of late at GEBE.
Seems like if you are not purchasing anything your needs are "old news"
I feel like I have been "slapped in the face" after investing around $800 dollars in their company.

Maybe I can get some productive answers/options here & possibly keep the GEBE setup.
But I am more than open to other options.

Any & all input would be greatly appreciated!
& if can help anybody please contact me!

Hey Starman,

Sam has an excellent GEBE rant in Rackem. Read that and add your probs under Sam's thread, it may be something minor once you get the description down in words, and we can get you fixed up and running at full speed.

If we get your situation solved, that is what MB.com is for.

I learned a lot just by switching things around, there is no "one size fits all" in what is an emerging and evolving hobby.
