Gas in Front - Electric in Back

Here's a bike I spotted back in September. I had my bike on the back of my truck and tried to good naturedly rib this guy for not wanting to pedal up the big hill we had just come up.

He didn't totally understand my ribbing; but mentioned something about how many disks had been fused or something.

Good to see he's still riding somehow.

Not a bad idea but would have been better executed in reverse. Having that ICE dangling up their like that seems like it would cause handling issues. Looks like a GEBE kit in the front and a Bion-x in the rear which is why he has it set up that way as Bion-x only supplys rear hubs.

A member of the e-bike forum on www.ecoforumz.com added a gas motor to his Ezip. I think he uses his bike for commuting and his wife drives the car. Here's a link to the thread and the youtube video he posted. http://www.ecoforumz.com/electric-bi...otor-bike.html
