That is interesting, I will be interested to see if he can get it to market for his $500 price point. Currently the bike to electric conversion kits are ranging from $400-$2000+ depending on which one you buy. I would like to see a full set of specs on his system too.

Webshots is bailing out, if you find any of my posts with corrupt picture files and want to see them corrected please let me know. :(

There is a thread up in Commuting that talks about this product, as well as two in E-bikes. The one in Commuting contains a link to one E-bikes, which in turn has a link to the other in E-bikes.

Feel free to continue the discussion in any of those.
