To whomever is in charge:
I'm a colege student who rides a home built brushless 24v 800w bike to school and back everyday, a round trip of 20 miles. I also ride it everywhere I can within my 30 mile range. Every 10 months or so I'm buying 2 new deep cycles at almost $100 each, I ride it a LOT. I've been looking into a alternative storage source and stumbled onto an article about EEStor and your company. I then read the entire wikipedia article and kept saying "WOW" out loud to myself. The 1kwh bike concept sounds freeking awesome!!! Though so many of us hardcore EVers out there have spent so much time and money on our bikes that we can't bring ourselves to replace them but would love to use the technology. Are you also going to sell a 1kwh kit consisting of the capacitor, charger and voltage regulator(regulator different depending on voltage needs) to the general public? If you are I will pay for it right now, just tell me where to send the dough and when to expect it at my doorstep. I'm more than happy to post this email along with yours on the EV forums I frequent to spread the word. For example endless-sphere.com and visforvoltage.org. Thank you and keep up the good work!
