I've been talking extesively through emails with Doug at Gocarlite, trying to make a decision about which one of my bikes to convert for my first e-bike. I have a Bike E recumbent, and a Cannondale Optimo cyclocross, but I may just buy the fully rigged-already Bianchi Cortina that he offers on his site. It seems like more of a commuter style ride than my two. He has been very patient and answered all of my newby questions. I'm sure I'll have a few more before I commit. Any advice from this forum on making my decision will be welcome.
I should add that Doug thinks I should convert my Bike E, because bents are so comfortable, but mine is the small one and I wouldn't have any ability to carry things like lunch for work or a small grocery load. I'd have to rig up a trailer, I guess.
