    NEW BUILD: Yeti AS-R 7 with CYC X1 Stealth

    THE BUILD
    Sold my Polygon Cascade 3 with a BBSHD to a friend on short notice. I need a bike, motor, battery, and charger. I know what the BBSHD feels like on a hardtail, I like it but want more. Preferably full suspension. The bike is what I need first, after I know my bike then I can get a kit to fit it. I must also build the entire bike on a strict budget, less than $2500.

    THE BIKE
    Within a few days, I found a bike on craigslist, it is a 2009 Yeti AS-R 7. It has been used for downhill racing, but the owner had kept it up and upgraded it regularly.

    THE MOTOR
    knowing what the BBSHD felt like, and having installed it. I wanted a different kit, Not that I didn't LOVE the BBSHD but I am an experimentalist and wanted to try something new. Plus, the 73mm BBSHD was out of stock from LUNA. So I started doing research. there were a few options, but many are either discontinued or out of stock or something else. Finally, I stumbled across the CYC X1 Stealth from Electrifybike.com HERE: https://www.electrifybike.com/produc...rive-motor-kit.

    THE BATTERY
    After I bought the bike I realized the Battery I was planning wouldn't work. It would have to be underslung and impact resistant. so that left the wolf pack as my only option. since they weren't in stock for standalone orders I had to special order one, this was possible because I had bought a BBSHD before.
