I have been pondering on the idea of buying an electric bike and just wondered if anyone on here has any experience of them. Tia .

There's a new electric bike shop opened in Southport near Morrisons. They also hire them, so it could be worth popping in to test before you buy.

I always thought a small windmill on a bike would be a good idea.

A quick pedal to get moving then the sails are turning Convert that into electric to power the wheel and you're sorted!

Two windmills work better, one to catch the high wind and one to catch the low wind, it’s called the B & F system.
