Just a little self-promotion;o) Being as how I'm the one who originally "Outed" you, Jason, I would like to be considered for getting a kit. As a total n00b, but with a good mechanical aptitude, I think I would be a good candidate. New Orleans is relatively flat, and we have a rapidly growing bicycle community that would make for a rich market for your products. With multiple colleges, and a large student/artist/musician community, I've been looking into starting a conversion business. I've only seen 2 E-bikes in town, and i know that once people were exposed to them, they would take off like crazy
My wife and I are avid cyclists. We have miles of bike paths that run along the Mississippi River and Lake Pontchartrain that would make great testing grounds for your products, not to mention marketing ops. I have an old rigid MTB, and the wife rides a fully supended Wally-World Y-frame that I could use as testbeds.
OK, that's my pitch. Either way, I'm interested in doing business with you. I believe E-bikes have a great future, and I want to be a part of it.
