    glad you found us.

    Do you have a motor assisted bicycle yet? Or are you thinking of getting one?

    Maybe it doesn't matter, because the best advice in any case is to read, read, read and then read some more. You will pick up those tips you're looking for. It will almost surely save you from the sort of errors that are easy to make and will bring you to a complete stop.

    You'll also pick up tips on good mods and tweaks.

    so now you need to build yourself a bike and then tell us all about it.

    We eat it right up.

    see you around.

    I just bought a zoomcycle limited motor

    well I just ordered a zoomcycle limited motor and had it sent to me. I will be putting it on an old mountain bike I have.

    Currently have a Walmart Currie E-zip bike that I am playing with.

    How would you rate that wal-mart electric bike?

    I'm moderately interested in them. Might not ever buy one, but it's been a bit tempting.

    Walmart bike - works as advertised, just barely. It has enough strength to push you along on a flat road for five miles out, and five miles back. If you put it on a hilly area it will have problems having the strength to get up the hill.

    it really needs a transmission.
