Dave lives at the top of a big hill and his office is at the bottom, so he's all in favour of a helping hand. Plus, e-bikes are fun! He's the editor of ebiketips and one of the founders of EBT's road cycling sister site, He used to work on Cycling Plus and What Mountain Bike back in the day, and he's a former mountain bike bog snorkelling World Champion. Really.

Very interested to find this. I'm seeking a way of installing electric assit to a Pashley fixed wheel tricycle for a disabled customer. the trike is very low geared, so I want to be able to limit its top speed. Fitting a front hub motor eliminates the one and only front brake. Conventional mid-drive motors have front freewheels. I can think of no reason why this wouldn't work - though my colleague imagines a disaster! What do you reckon?
