Anyone have any experience with Electric Assisted Bikes? I'm seriously thinking about getting one for mountain biking. At my age and physical condition theres no way I'm peddling up hills without some assistance and I don't want to have to push my bike up every steep hill I encounter. Maybe with a little help I could eventually make it on my own.
I'm really interested in the kits because of the price. I'm just wondering how well they would work on a cheap mountain bike from Walmart or do I need to bite the bullet and get the whole package?
I was thinking the same thing and it's quite possible the person that replied just assumed since it has a motor then it is not permitted. I agree with you if it's classified as a pedal cycle it should be legal.
