    Ebike Builders for HIRE ... introduce yourself here

    Are you a skilled builder looking to make some extra dollars installing kits for newbies? or do you own a bike or ebike shop and want to fish for some extra business.

    At luna we always get asked who can install kits and for now on can refer this people to this post for possible candidates.

    Please list your name and city and what kits you can install here in the format i will provide in the next post. Provide one picture of a build you did or a picture of yourself....

    If you have ever written an ebike article, build thread or have a website please link to it here. If you have never done a build thread i really recommend you do one and post it here so people can see your work:
    https://electricbike.com/forum/forum...ing-directions

    please list your real name so people can vouch for you...

    Write a paragraph about yourself and services..and most importantly a link to a build thread :)

    Note: these installers are not sanctioned, affiliated or endorsed by Luna Cycle or Electricbike.com

    Edit: Unfortunately, I don't have time to do this because I work six days a week and I need to save time so I can ride and maintain my own bikes.


    My name is Erik Mannie. My website is www.commuterebikes.com. I have a full shop in Santa Rosa, CA which includes a large hydraulic press so I am able to rebuild hub motors and install axles. I will do any bicycle or ebike work. I lace and true wheels, including hub motors. I also have a full soldering setup for connectors as well as a TIG and stick setup for welding mild and stainless steel, aluminum and titanium.

    I completed all of the mechanic's classes at United Bicycle Institute in Portland, OR, USA and I have a Certified Bicycle Technician certification. I am currently taking the chromoly brazing and TIG classes at UBI in Ashland, OR.

    I have one extensive, ongoing project which is a high power, fat tire police (may be used as commuter) ebike where all of the electronics (except the Grin Tech Cycle Analyst V3 display) are hidden. This bike is my avatar photo. These police ebikes cost me about $10,000 and take a year to complete. No effort is made to control costs or effort because I only focus on reliability and performance. The police ebikes come in two models: street and mountain. I have been using the street version as a daily commuter for a few years and it seems to be perfect except for going up very steep hills, which was the motivation for the mountain version. The video for the street version is on the home page of my website. The street version has a 70T chainring and a 13-34T freewheel. The mountain version has a 20T chainring and a 23T White Industries freewheel. Top speed on both models is 47 mph.

    I have a non-ebike job six days a week, so I only have Sundays available for customers. I also go to United Bicycle Institute on all of my vacations which will result in the ability to make custom chromoly or titanium frames, but not until 2019.

    My phone number is (707)293-8973.

    The street version build thread is here: https://electricbike.com/forum/forum...e-build-thread.

    The mountain version build thread is here: https://electricbike.com/forum/forum...re-mtb-project.

      I rode his bike a few weeks ago. SOLID.
      Very solid. . If you want to go fast, reliably, you need the premium parts he uses.

      Good looking bikes, reasonable prices, compared to the vast majority of ebikes for sale I've seen it looks like your stuff is quite the bang for your buck, very nice.

        Hello all,

        I'm in the Charlotte North Carolina South Carolina area, I am a professional bicycle Tech with 35 years of experience and with attention to detail, about 2 1/2 years ago I started working and installing all types of electric motors and had a blast learning all about them and became an expert at it, I now run my own service shop for regular bikes and E-bike repairs, service and advice on components and fittings to make sure people ride bikes again comfortably and safely.

          Hello,

          I'm Dayn, and I work as the lead Ebike mechanic at Classic Cycles in Oregon City (not far from Portland Oregon.)

          I have been building my own custom Ebikes, battery packs and I really like the Bafang mid-drives (BBS02 & BBSHD) that Luna sells, I have built many with these kits.

          Have built many different types of Ebikes over the years, and would be happy to build yours. Call (503) 557-1977 for more info.

                Hi,
                I'm Rick Speicher and I'm the owner of Rix Rydes, a full service bike/ebike shop located in Beautiful Canyon Lake, Texas. We're located just west of the IH35 corridor between Austin and San Antonio.
                I do kit installation for those who want the power and quality of a DIY kit but are unable to, or do not want to, tackle it themselves. I also do custom fast (50mph)ebike builds of both mid-drive and hub. If you have been thinking about getting or building an ebike, give me a call, text or email, before you buy and I will be glad to point you in the right direction. Whether that direction is to the right kit for you to install, or to my shop for me to install it for you!

                Check us out on the web at: http://rixrydes.com/

                We're also on Facebook, Instagram and twitter.

                      John Mellor here. I've worked on bikes since I was a kid. I also run a local mobile bike repair service. My specialty is trying to keep older bikes on the road at least possible cost. I rode an old MTB on a solo cross country trip from Seattle to Halifax Nova Scotia and kept the bike in good working order for the duration. I try to recycle parts when available but focus on comfort, functionality and safety. I've installed 8 Bafang mid drive kits and one hub motor kit. Have only bought through LUNA. I am in the San Luis Obispo area - Los Osos to be specific. I do not have a retail shop or a website. My phone number is 805-528-four seven two four. I do have references if requested.

                        Michael T. in Edmonton Canada.
                        Retired, will build for free but you pay for materials....I keep a detailed material list.
                        Built my 1st modern FS eMTB in 2017 from scratch, 200mm (8" Travel).
                        Built my battery pack (52v) from TESLA cells.
                        Top speed on the flats is 72kph, I tuned it down to 50kph, its fast enough for trail riding.
                        Put 3603km on the bike from 2nd week of May/17 to Dec 3/17....Then had a crash and broke my wrist in 2 places....Bike is fine!













                        AND....
                        eSk8 battery pack, built a 10S4P for a client.
                        eSk8 tops out @ 55kph ... Marty McFly would piss his pants with envy!










                        I'm in development of a website dedicated to the local DYI community as an alternative to the pre-built retail offerings.
                        My website is 'Edmonton E Ride Community' (EERC), a non-profit resource for the builder.
                        Having a fast ebike/esk8 is great, having others to go on rides with is another issue, this site was built to organize group, buddy rides, local events and seek help from the community in your building endeavor.
                        Repair and maintenance skills are definitely needed in the membership.....as well as members.

                              I have made 1715 posts, a great deal of which contained pictures. The only problems that I had with uploading pictures turned out to be operator error. Uploading multiple photos takes a little getting used to.

                              If you try to upload more than 4 pictures in a single post, it will be a challenge. Size a picture to less than 1.5MB and attach it. See how it came out. If it didn't get uploaded to the post properly, delete the photo and try again. This is done by deleting the photo you just uploaded, and then attaching it again. The more photos you attach to a post, the less chance you have of success. I usually upload just one or two pictures to a single post. If I want to upload more pictures, I make another post.

                              The post you are referring to has way too many pictures for a single post. Just make more posts.
