    Drives the crank? Would seem like a better application if it drove the wheel and could use regenerative braking to recharge the batteries.

    I'm pulling a complete blank on the company...but there's a small company that makes an electric motor with an integrated cassette body. It was an assist, as opposed to fully electric driven. It felt like someone was pushing you up hill. What I wanna see is an electric rear wheel integrated with a planetary gear box.
