Hello from the mountains of Prescott, az.

I like this forum, very impressive. I have a China import, 48v. for 4 years now.
I am exploring the possiblity of adding a gas engine to make my bike a true hybrid.
Any comments?
Thx.

Welcome aboard!

I would give pedaling a chance,
you'd be surprised how fast a bike
can go if it's not dragging a motor and battery.

Thx for the comment,
I would agree, if I was still a youngster in my 50's, (20 yrs. ago). But in the mountains of AZ. (5500' elevation, we have a lot of steep terrain and the air up here is pretty thin. So, still looking to add a gas
engine to my battery powered bike. Has anybody heard of this conversion?
Thanks
