Thx for response (and . . . wow!).
I have set up a Google Drive spot to document process of electrifying my bike, and plan to work with Christopher Wallace beginning Thursday.  I believe it's a full time job to sort through the myriad products and possibilities for the fastest growing world mobility option.  And local bike shops are not up to this at present. 

I'd like to photo / video document the process to further advance the adoption of this transit mode.  My wife Cheryl and I will be relocating to mountainous Cuenca, Ecuador in about a year, and I want to bike into nearby Cajas national parkSo I want to fully master electric bike and hopefully haul the beast south of equator (ole!).

Hope you might click on Google Drive folder and observe my process or chip in your THREE cents & participate.  This collaboration is Public.
