Sorry, but I'm with you on the muscles vs electric motors. In my book, if it's motorized it's a motorcycle, not a bicycle.

I don't begrudge then for using them, but I didn't like their presence in the bike lanes, & especially going over the bridges.

I'm still nursing the wounds from a head-on collision with a lightless Power Salmon on a dark Queens night. Had he been human-powered maybe he would have engaged in the moment and noticed my headlight getting closer.

Could you place a dynamo or something on it, and trickle back into the battery system?

Steve Boser

The hubmotor powered version uses regenerative braking which puts a small amount of power back into the battery and reduces wear on the brakes by switching the motor into a generator while slowing the bike.

I think they call that a "mo-ped", and depending on where you live, subject to motor vehicle laws.


I never thought of using a skate board as a bike rear rack. This is brilliant! It's both heavy duty and good looking.

I might give it a try some day...
