    I'm considering commuting to work next year. Its 25 miles each way with a few big hills. Thats a good 1.5 hrs of pedaling.
    Anyway, i'm looking for a way to ease in my commute. Any comment on the NuVinci kit? Or would the chain drive kit be enough? I'm looking for top end speed!

    Whats the website of the electric hub company? I'm sure the place i work at will let me charge up my batteries.

    Try, "Bion X". It's hub driven, with lithium ion battery, up to 350 watts of power.

    Thats rather expensive. I'm sure its worth it for the right person. Any comments on that engine kit i listed above? Is the Nu vini worth the extra money? I'm looking the easiest commute. I have a couple big hills and i also need top speed to reduce my commute time.
    Also looking to reduce the fatege in my hands. The vibration from the handlebars is intence. Would a carbin fiber fork help? I'm running 559/1.50 kenda - kwest
