    HV-Maxx for personal transport

    Since the price of petrol is going slowly through the roof I'm looking at alternative modes of transport for my 4 mile trip to work. I was looking at electric bikes and they seem to have brushless 200w motors and get up to about 15mph. I have read that the HV-Maxx can pump 375w or 525w with cooling fan. How mad would it be to hitch one up to a bike with maybe half a dozen batteries and cruise to work? And would I need a wheelie bar??!!

    Hmm...the only issue I see is how to give it throttle, you would need a radio system, other than that, a 12V battery would work pretty well. And, if the bike has gears, even better lol.
