    Old Paperboy back in the saddle...

    Hello from Tumwater, Washington State! I've been spending this past year attempting to become a regular rider again, and have been using a Giant Suede-E electric assist bike for my recreational and (occasionally) commuting needs. Very interested to see if there are other power assisted riders on these forums. I've had a hip replacement that now necessitates that I watch the kind of athletic endeavors I take on - and had a dislocation this past year, so I'm beginning to learn towards a recumbent trike, (possibly electric assist). I have three other bikes I'm converting to power assist, using hub motor kits and a Currie USPD drive unit. Would love to swap experiences and learn about riding triumphs and challenges.

    Welcome to the forums! I am a run of the mill roadie but we share the same passion. I don't have any experience with power assisted bicycles but the title of your post caught my eye.

    I'm sure that there are some people here who can help you with converting a bicycle. After all, I think the 75,000 member joined not too long ago and someone's bound to have some advice.

    Hi Mark, you will find that there are more than a few people here who have had hip replacements--Hipcycler instantly springs to mind.

    I see you have found the Pacific Northwest regional forum!
