Grant wants to get an electric bike. Leo says they are great to get around, and he can pedal them. But they aren't cheap at $1500 or more. He can electrify an old bike, but that's almost as much. Leo's wife likes the RadRover with big fat tires.
From the chatroom - Check out Staton.com for electrifying a bike.
There's also a recumbent trike called the TerraTrike.
One thing Leo advises is to try them out first. If he looks around town, he'll find electric bikes that he can rent by the hour or by the mile. Give it a go first.
