Hi Steven,
I am interested in electric assist bicycles and trailers. I think we're going to have to do a lot of adventures and work with them. Do we currently have batteries that could help an electric bicycle, say, pedaling 2/3 of the time go 20 miles, pick up something 50 pounds, and return for a recharge to home? I am interested in how much distance, hill and weight we could take and still get back home for a recharge.
Thanks,
John S
