Met and test-rode this one at recumbent meeting in September:
All I know about the owner is that he speaks German.
Hub motor in front wheel (hidden behind cassette), battery somewhere under the
seat. No handling difficulties at all. There may be more mass at the front than
usual, but I'm used to even heavier one (non-motorized), so this felt fine.

Yes, I know at least one guy (Johannes alias „seilsteiger“ from southern
Germany) who has a hub motor in his rear wheel.
According to his experiences it handles nicely pushing you up that nasty hill
or gravel road.
I suppose rear wheel is simplest and best for climbing.

Has anyone tried adding an electric motor to a Python? I'm wondering if it
would help or hinder the handling characteristics. And whether rear or front
wheel power would be preferred.
