hey i was just looking through some specs for power drills... DAMN some of those things have got some grunt! like 65 Nm of torque! thats like drilling with the back wheel of a big dirt bike! Anyway that got me thinking ( oh-no...) legalities aside, what would stop you from bolting on the motor and several battery pack from a cordless drill onto a bicycle... or hell, use 2 of the buggers... you'd be looking at over 120 Nm pushing less than 15 kg (or 100 kg once you add rider... granted the battery wouldn't last more than an hour or so, but would be fine for the daily commute, and if you want a longer trip, pack a few spares and a charger... Either way, it'd have to work out cheaper than the electric scooters on the market, with significantly better acceleration and top speed Is this idea craziness or kick-ass?
