I know there's a demand for an ultralight pedalable electric dirtbike but finding someone with the guts and knowledge necessary to help us get it to market has been very frustrating.

How are you going to sell someone an offroad machine for $5000 without suspension??!!! It's not like you shared anything spectacular with the community, you might have impressed a few freinds back home by showing them something they have never seen, but here on ES it's an above average build. I don't really see the point of a mobile machine shop either. I don't think you researched your market very well, if you had you would have realized that off road peace loving cyclist enjoy the excercise and accomplishment in pedaling thier ass through technical terrain and conquering that mountain. On the other end of the spectrum is the DH crowd that also ride MX and could give two shits about sustainability and would rather pay $1000 more for carbon bits than sustaining your hippy lifestyle. My aim is not to offend here, but I think you need a serious reality check. The harsh reality is there is no market for this high powered ebike, there never was, and as the economy goes, possibly never will be. Also, the reason you are having problems selling your wares is that this is a community of hackers and modders ( and cheapskates) most would rather DIY it than pau somebody else for thier failed attempt at a prototype.
Holey smokes Etard.....bad day?

I don't have any more patience for the ignorance and negativity.
