I've been wanting to get a bike for quite some time now, but have been putting it off, as I really would like to get some type of pedal assist. As it will hopefully be a replacement for a car in most situations I would prefer the pedal assist not be gas.
I've read/heard a bit about kinetic assists, and it really intrigues me.
Recently I was at the farmers market and a new bicycle company was there, handmaking bikes here in town. Not only were they local, they were super cool too. They're modelled after the Ferguson bicycle. They're internally geared, and just seem like the perfect bike for me.
So I spoke with the guy and he contacted some company he knows in portland doing these kinetic assists, but he said they couldn't do it on their fergussons, but he could put it on some other extended storage type bike (not internally geared), that i didn't really like as much as the ones they currently do.
The point of my thread is I'm wondering a few things.
-Does anyone one a pedal assist bike?
-Anyone experienced with
*another type of non gas assist
