I have an older, but high quality recumbent bike that I have been playing with the idea of adding hub motor to...

I love the idea of a recumbent, but it feels suicidal in traffic.

I got used to it when I used to commute with it- but it was scary at first.
Yea, I can't compete on that level of dickhead
