    Mongoose Hitch Fat Bike build with Luna 1000 watt motor kit

    I decided to do my first Ebike build with a cheap Fat bike and a Luna Fourth Anniversary BBSHD Mid Drive Kit Special.
    The motor kit may take a couple weeks to arrive, so I am prepping the bike while I wait

    The bike is a Mongoose Hitch steel bike.
    The frame is very solid and the wheels are very solid also.
    It's a cheap steel bike, but I am only after the Frame and the wheels for this build
    I have a bunch of nicer parts that I already had on hand that will replace the crappy steel parts that come on the bike.

    If all goes well and I like the bike after it is finished, my plan is to build up a full carbon Fat bike using my source for carbon parts, Peter at xmcarbonspeed.com.
    I have scratch build a couple full carbon MTN bikes using carbon part from Peter, but I have never had or built a Fat bike.

    So the Mongoose Hitch arrived and the build has started.
    I'll be posting build notes when I get further along
    I have 3 build videos so far on YouTube that I will link to.

    The build playlist is here

            Here's the final video on the 67 pound Big Red Fat Pig bike.
            The next build stage is transfering the Luna BBSHD motor kit over to a Full Carbon fiber Frame, fork and wheel set.

            I added a screen shot of the carbon parts I ordered
            I ordered black Shimano hubs and black spokes

            Here's the youtube video link
