Electrifying Bicycles

This could be just the thing to encourage a large number of people to try bicycling as a means of transportation. The concept of changing a wheel and installing the wireless controller is brilliant. The conversion and weight couldn't get much simpler than that.

It will likely be easier to install the electric drive system than it is to assemble a regular bicycle with a derailleur, chain, and cranks.

And with the option of having both wheels equipped with such a system, if use could be sequenced such that one was only powered up after the other, the range might almost double (45 mile range?).
