Thanks for the recommendation! I saw your thread: Revel Propulsion

The system is something I'll seriously consider. It looks like it's adaptable to a steel road bike I have. If I understand correctly, It's power output is completely torque dependent, or does the display include settings that can be adjusted while riding?
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
