For reasons I don't understand myself, I would like to build an electric bike that can exceed the speed limit of 55 mph. Technological advances in batteries, motors, and controllers now make this possible with off-the-shelf parts. In addition, one of us (Doug Binder) has experience designing and building fairings for low-power high-speed cycles. If people would like to join me and Doug I plan to work on this project regularly and have a bike ready by the spring. Currently I'm at the makerspace Wednesday evenings 7 to 9.
