For those of you interested in electric motors for bicycles the BionX system is an option. The rear hub mounted system is controlled by the rider and uses a strain gauge to enable the motor to provide a number of preset levels of assistance on top of the effort being expended by the rider. Depending on which model you buy the assistance can be anywhere from 25 to 300 percent.

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.
