    Holland is so flat you could roll a marble all the way across it. No surprise that bicycles are popular there.

    Personally, bicycling has never been as much fun since I last owned one of these:

    ^yep Holland is pretty flat, but the lesson me thinks is one of personal freedom, and not being a slave to the motorcar and petrol.

    I spent a few days cycling in Groningen last summer and really liked it.
    I didn't really understand why until I watched the video of how they engineered the traffic circulation of the city to suit the bicycle and not motor cars.

    I have a mongoose mountain bike at home which I have not used for a few years but I have been thinking of refurbishing it and buying a mid drive kit

    That one looks a bit complicated.

    I've been watching the e-assist bikes too.

    The hot ticket is the Canadian company, BionX.

    BionX Electric Bike Motor Conversion Kits | Electric Cyclery

    A little bit expensive, but fairly simple implementation to almost any bike.

    While in Holland I noted many e-bikes zipping around. Very expensive machines, the domain of the rich, for sure, but likely that will be changing over the next 10 years or so.

    But he said some interesting stuff.

    Its the mental challenge of the bike and up-hill puts that well and truly to the test.

    Looking up at where you got to go with 15 kilos tied to the carrier and you'll get that OMG moment and then the first turn of the cogs.
    Thought = time and with no thoughts there is no time, when paying Attention.
    The pains come and disappear and show up elsewhere and disappear.
    Until the body is sorted and you feel on top of the world.
    But it's all hard work and hard work never did anyone any harm.
    What my dad told me and he was right.

    And when energy is exhausted, thought isn't active but the mind can be alert .
    Pretty fucking amazing.

    On yer bike.

    sure there will be heaps of youtube tutorials on the bafang fitting

    23k baht for the 750watt - without battery - Conversion Kits ? E-Revolution Co.Ltd - scroll down

    though their battery choice is a bit sparse for 48v

    Should add,,, bike riding wasn't an afternoon affair.

    Usually the up and down-hills were for 10- 11 hrs riding per day.
    weeks and months at a time, everyday with occasional 1 or 2 day break
    for a scrub up and decent grub etc.. Giving the body a rest.
    Everyday a challenge.
    Taking on what the planet offers and all done with ones own energy.
    That's the beauty of it all.

    And for some to reach high fitness levels could take 9 to 18 months.
    Shit you not.

    Hopefully you actually ride it, and not just hang it on the wall because it looks pretty.

    Is that Seinfeld? My granddad told me about that but I'm not really up with American history.

    Bob, thanks for confirming that you don't cycle much. (if at all)

    Cycling improves mental clarity Bob, likely your trolling would show more intelligence.

    That was a very pretty yellow bike, unlikely you actually have one like it, just more of your legendary Dr Bob bullshit.

    BORING!!!

    Put a Hayabusa engine on it and then post some vids, well one vid at least, ask the bereaved to post it because there's unlikely to be a second.

    Hmm, the standard demented old piss-drinker nonsense of "If I don't like it ain't true"
