    ... and they're geared to produce amazing torque.

    Krafty bikes have a couple new models coming out soon that are not shown on the web site that would be suitable. Krafty are decent quality, not amazing, not crap, at the price of crap bikes.

    For long climbing approaches you'll definitely want a mid drive. When you're looking at web sites claimed ranges, 5-10 miles one way uphill with gear can translate to about 40 miles of flat, the downhill is free mileage.

    It hasn't been a problem and there isn't a bike shop around with less than a 3-4 week turnaround time so I ignored it and rode it till it quieted down on it's own. I'm also on the disabled list for a few more days at least so it gets some more time to relax and heal. Bikes are people too
