Topic: How far will I get?

... when attempting to ride an East German ladies shopping bicycle up the world's steepest road? I am bone idle, drink like a fish and have successfully avoided any form of physical exercise since leaving school 30 years ago. A pic from the workshop where I'm making a little modification;

Closest guess gets something in the post from Blighty from me. Or something.

Are you turning it into a mid-drive e-Bike? You'll need to watch for toe-overlap with your cranks further forwards, the wheelbase isn't generous on the 20" folding designs.

Less than half!

No, funds don't stretch to anythign more than leg-power! Ground clearance is stupidly low, must remember than when getting my knee down when on the descent.

It's about 4 miles long. I would be happy to cover 1/10th of the distance!

Re: How far will I get?

1 kilometer. It sounds more than 0.621 miles, doesn't it.

Nearly f*cking killed myself on the way up, and hit about 125mph on the way down. Lost my wig. And my dignity. Some pics to follow.
