I've been riding my Rover to work for over a year now and put over 600 miles on it. My job has moved and my ride has increased to 7.5m with lots of hills so I'm looking to add electric assist to the trike. I've done some research and have seen solutions ranging from <500$ to over $2000. The hub design motor seems to be the most popular however I'd like to keep the 8-sp hub if possible. That leaves front sprocket or mid-drive kits (or maybe something else I haven't seen yet). I'm not looking to convert the bike to a Veleomobile. I'd just like to have motor assist for going up hills so I can keep a more steady pace. Can someone provide a suggestion for a kit that is not too expensive and preferably with some tips on how best to mount it?
