    Very nice, we're too stupid to invest in ideas like that in the USA. We'd rather give free stuff to folks who refuse to work.

    The evil scientist in me wants to modify that hill assist device with a steam catapult from an aircraft carrier :evilgrin:

    I've been setting peddle only bikes up like this front chainrings: 22, 36, 48; rear 7 speed freewheel: 34, 28, 24, 21, 18, 15, 13. This is the shifting style: 1(1, 2, 3); 2(3, 4, 5); 3(5, 6, 7). This style of shifting eliminates redundancy, cross chaining and chain droop. I install a bike computer with a cadence function on it. I also install a digital protractor. I've teach them what gear and cadence to use for certain degree accent or descent. Eveyone I've set up bikes for tell me the 9 speed system works great on these steep hills in Tennessee. They can now do on a department store bike what can be done on expensive bike shop bicycle.
