Why would you read this book?

Most people start off with electric bicycles by buying a commercially built one. This is good because it gets you riding straightaway. After you get over the initial novelty of the seemingly magical silent propulsion, you begin to think, “Why can’t it go faster?” This is where this book comes in. It covers buying the best commercial electric bicycle for you, upgrading it for more power and speed, building your own more-powerful electric bicycle, learning new skills and how things work, repairing your electric bicycle when it breaks down, and adding modifications to improve it.
