Long-range bike pusher
I'm going to be attending the University of Arizona (in Tucson, AZ) next year and I'd like to find a relatively easy way to make the 100-mile trek from Tucson to Phoenix on my bike. I'm an avid racer and I could bike 100 miles without a problem, but I'd like some assistance just to get home faster.
I don't want to buy a whole new bike and I'd like to use my existing road bike. So, I'm planning on using a design similar to the Bidwell Bike Pusher
My question is this- what kind of electronics should I use? Would it be a viable option to buy a cheap electric scooter and use the parts from that? And my main question is:
Is a 100 mile range on an electric bike pusher even possible? If not, would a gas engine work?
