    I really screwed up. Just before I ordered my BBHSD and before I found that used Electra 7d Lux I saw a cruiser at the dump and didn't throw it in the truck. I was trying to curtail my hoarding. The handle bars and control levers were gone but the frame looked ok and the wheels too. It had what looked like that hub on the back only a shimano. I was thinking of taking it just to pull the hub apart and see how it worked. I wish I had now I could have found a use for both the rims and the hub.........Oh Well

      AT THE DUMP!??? WOW!! Those frame rock! Especially the oldest ones. They are so overbuilt and can handle LOTS of weight. My dream frame is a 10-12 y/o Townie

        What are you asking for the SA 3speed?

        Well, I figure it's worth about $200, and I would gladly pay you that now, except I just found an exceptional deal on Ebay for a "lightly used" Townie 8 women's, $300! I am sure you can understand why I had to go that route! I may need that 3 speed soon though, from what I hear, the Nexus 8 on that Townie won't last long behind a BBSHD! Any experience with one? Any suggestions for this build?

          Read Spinningmagnet's article on IGHs.

          The popular Bafang BBS02 and BBSHD mid drives are introducing an entirely new generation to electric bikes. Many of these new ebikers are asking about the option of using an Internally Geared Hub (…

            Thanks! I read that article. I didn't mean to make it sound like the Nexus 8 is weak, it's not, except when compared to a SA 3speed. I'm sure my wife will get many miles out of that Nexus hub, but when it breaks, I'll be looking for a 3 speed!

              This is the one place a Gearsensor makes sense to me. That said many consider this version to be one of the toughest IGH builds out there.
              I thought the build problem was the lack of a brake? Not trying to push the sell here just curious as to how you solved the brake problem? Or maybe I'm thinking of another build. The blue Electra with the one piece crank wasn't you?

                NO, not me​! I've been trying to get the wife to go with a quality bike, but she didn't want me to spend the money, and so picked out a way inferior bike that would have benefited from this wheel build. Then this morning on ebay here is this cherry of a bike for $300 bucks! An Electra 8, It has the Nexus 8, which is a great IGH, but I think a 3 speed better when you run BBSHDs! We'll see how long she can make the Nexus last!
                Point taken on the gear sensor, it will be included in the build.

                  I don't know how everyone else rides but on bike paths or the street I rarely go over 10 amps. Now on trails in the woods the riders are using max assist and holding the throttle wide open. They are the ones who are breaking things. I don't have an IGH but I am relatively sure that I could use just about anything and not break it. I am also sure that your wife with that bike is not going to be inclined to go hot rodding.

                    You are so right! She is not the hot rod type at all! It'll probably last forever with her light touch!
