Using an electric bike instead of a car is the best way you can reduce
your fuel usage and increase your fitness. They're ideal for commutes
of up to 50km a day and ideal for people from 15 year old to 80 years
old and from 40kg to 120kg. Finding a really good electric bike
conversion kit for your bike can be difficult. We've done a lot of
research and testing and have a great simple systems at very fair
prices that we can send anywhere in the world - though we specialise
in Australia. We're also making some progress towards getting them all
solar-powered and appreciate any help and ideas on this. Please see
our website for lots of information on electric bikes and making them
solar powered - and eventually algae/hydrogen powered.

Matt when you say your making progress on getting them solar powered do you mean onboard solar power or at home?
Have you seen the Electric Bike World Tour website?

He was running 3 20Watt panels on a trailer to recharge his second battery pack I believe.
Be interesting to hear his experience on that setup.
