Mike's EZ-Tad

Wow! My friend Mike bought this cool EZ-Tad with an electric motor. What's even cooler is that he let me ride it. It was so fun. The seat is way comfortable, and the ride is great. The motor has some serious zip to it. I like how the thumb throttle gently applies as much torque as you want to help climb hills, or gives full-out speed for just being lazy. It would make a perfect commuter.

I stripped my own recumbent down to just a box of parts, and sanded the frame. Now I'm prepping it for paint, which is going very slow and tediously. Especially since I've only been able to get a few minutes here and there to work on it. At least it's moving ahead.
