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.
