    It's like I'm back in the day!





    Getting on, and experiencing debilitating hyper-tension if I cycle much- guess I over-did racing 14 years USCF back "in the day". Went through the gas bike 2 cycle China Girl thing the past ten years after being flooded down to Florida, searching for the ultimate light moped, and found I rode my 50 cc build more than my 66 build, because it's lighter and easier to pop clutch start- (And quieter!)

    Now I've done two electric hub builds- a 500 watt GT with a big silver fish 36v bike battery, and this 250watt 36 volt vintage Peugeot mixte frame, and I'm using two 36v hoverboard batteries wired parallel with T-60 connectors- and it'll go about 20 for about 10-12 miles.

    Anyway- sorta like motorpacing and not giving it a lot of torque but some pedal assist almost always just spinning, so I'm having fun, getting exercise- feeling safer than the China Girl power and less noisy and much more like the old cycling days.

    Glad I have this, but wish I had found it sooner- pretty good transportation too in urban Jacksonville.

        Nice bikes! Biking is definitely a good form of exercise.
