    I have only recently seen your excellent magazine. I was hoping for a chat site here, on electric bikes. I have owned several; Two aspects really need discussing (a) motor in hub (front and rear), as compared with chain driven and (b) sensor control or throttle. I have had several, and would welcome discussion. Another topic which would be interesting is motorized tricycles – I currently own a Gomier with TW chain drive – 650 watt 24 volt –
    these things can be extremely dangerous . Another thing – 250 watts will never propel a bicycle up really steep hills – which where electric assist is most needed.
