Greetings earthling bike riders

Aloha from the surf dude.
Moved from Maui to beautiful Sonoma county in nor cal. It's a huge bike riding town. Big road races all
year. So, I'm getting into bike riding here with the help of some new friends. I have 3 bikes already.
It's hilly here so I customized a Schwinn Stingray. I added a 24v 500w elec motor, controler, 2 12v
batteries, and a Nexes 7 speed internal rear hub, derailers was a problem. Extended the front fork
and raised the seat so I have the right leg length for peddeling. .

I think you need to post a pic of that bike. Sounds like it fits in the alternative category!
