How quiet can one get a 15-20 mph bike?

    Noise reduction is first priority, more important than speed, but the bike must be able to climb steep mountain roads, like in the Alps, carrying me and a backpack, at around 200 pounds combined, so what is the lowest decibel one can get in these conditions, having the best engine and muffler when price is almost not an issue?

    Thanks for reply! Unfortunately I can't use a motorized bicycle since I just discovered that all of them are illegal in my home country, Norway...

    I know, it's crazy.

    Have you looked into electric bikes ? Strong, very quiet . And you should be able to find Stromer bikes over there everywhere , I would think. They are very good. Hope this helps. Keep looking up! Ken.

    Yes, but electric bikes need charging and not easy to do that while traveling in the mountains. Waiting 4-6 hours at a gas station while charging batteries every second day is rather boring.
