    I haven't decided for sure yet, but this one has good ratings, price is a little more than I'd hoped, and its 9.4 lbs (a little heavy, but not bad), but it has good ratings and all say that its pretty easy to assemble, and has a max speed of about 32 mph on full power.

    The greenways have a speed limit of 25mph (I have no idea how they check this - (I've never seen a "greenway" cop anywhere), so it certainly is one to consider. Also, one can turn off the motor and pedal as usual down inclines.

    It called the : BAFANG BBS02B 48V 750W Mid Drive Electric Bike Motor Ebike Conversion Kit, and costs about $350.

    You've all got the wrong idea...its a TRIKE you need, not an unstable 2-wheeler!

    If you can't handle a bike, then you probably CAN handle a Trike!

    Just go to a bike shop and ask to ride one around, man!

    I'm pretty sure I'd be stable enough on a two-wheeler.

    Given the right kind of surfaces to ride on, I can see that this might be comfortable.

    I learned to ride a 2-wheel bike in 1946 and sold my last one a year ago, after 73 years of riding, when I became too wobbly on it.

    Ahhh...but a TRIKE is a totally different story!:D

    You can get a 15-speed machine like mine for $1200-$1500. It has a disc brake for the rear wheels and a caliper brake for the front.

    I use mine for riding around the quiet residential streets of my neighborhood at a casual 6 MPH.

    If you're considering an E-bike for exercise, you can get just as much of a workout watching a Perry Mason re-run from your Recliner!
