Thea has a nice lightweight mountain bike equipped for utility with a rack, kickstand, fenders, lights, and a front hub motor. It’s a kids bike with 24″ wheels, but I often ride it myself—it’s kinda sporty! The motor is powerful enough that I don’t need to pedal. In retrospect I should have installed a rear hub motor instead of a front hub motor. The front wheel spins out on hills. In general I’ve concluded that front hub motors are not suitable for Ithaca.
