    Hi, I'm Doug Synder from San Fransisco. I've been interested in electric bicycles for a long time and promoting their use around our country and the world, it's the best way I know of to reduce impacts from fossil fuel burning. I've now started importing electric bicycle items for resale in the USA and have chosen to focus largely on getting a suitable range of electric bicycle conversion kits, have made a few sales but it's very early days at the moment. I've linked up with the Solar Bike team in Australia to fast track getting a decent product and also because I like their renewable energy take on things but I'll also be looking at getting other kits specific to the market base over here. If anyone has any information they can share on what they'd like in an electric bicycle conversion kit or is interested in getting one themselves then please let me know so I can take everything into consideration. Products I'm able to offer now are here and I would be very happy for any advice for this enterprise. Thanks in Advance, Doug.

    C_e-b, I have a suggestion. Read the FAQ, and read the Vendor Rules.

    This forum requires you to introduce yourself, specifically in the forum area intended for that. Additionally, post in which you are shilling for business are not acceptable, unless you are a registered vendor and posting in the appropriate area.

    Just a heads up.

    There's an electric bike category on this site if you have any specific electric bike questions. I will be expanding it into more sections in the future. Other than that I don't have any personal experience with electric bikes.

    I do like the idea of charging the bikes directly from the sun. That is a great idea.
