    E-Bikes forum?

    I've been looking into electrically-assisted bikes, both as a retrofit and as a purchased unit. So far the only active forum I've found is the "pwer-assist" email group on Yahoo.

    Development of the devices is all over the map, from commuters with small front hub motors to cargo trikes and velomobiles and other recumbents.

    Is there a forum here for e-bikes? Or, a forum where it's appropriate to post questions about modifying a bike with electic assist, etc?

    The Commuter section of this forum deals with electric assist bikes every now and again.
    Electric Vehicles and NYCewheels are two retailers specilizing in electric assist bikes. And Ben Cooper at Kinetics Bicycles has pages on bikes and DYI kits.
