    Ebikes in Texas.

    Anyone here familiar with the law in regards to electric bikes in the State of Texas? I'm thinking about purchasing one, but I would love to familiarize myself with the applicable laws and regs before I make the jump. All I know is that for an ebicycle to be used on the road it has to be limited to 20 MPH.

    Texas Electric Bike Laws

    Well, I'm confused! Is an electric assisted bike a scooter or something else? The Texas law seems to referring to two types of power assisted vehicles, a scooter or a neighborhood power assisted vehicle such as a golf cart. Where do electric bikes fit in this scheme?

    I have a recumbant with a gasaline engine I ride around Spring Texas. I have seen many cops drive right by me without even an interest. One cop actually watched me run a stop sign and did nothing about it. I would think a electric would be so much more discrete no cop would even consider bothering you.
