    Looking good. Just need some front and rear fenders, if you hit some mud.

    Well I got the telescoping stem, three speed and Bluto Rockshock installed. This bike is close to a go anywhere anytime bike as you can get. Here are two views of it.

    My seat post dropper is in the up position along with the stem. The Efneo three speed that goes into the bottom bracket is a nice solution for this bike. I dialed in 1100 watts of pedal assist and had it going 32 mph and hadn't spun out yet.. If I get into some rough terrain I can drop the seat and use the throttle. If I keep the PAS at 500 watts and ride around normally I can get 16 watts per mile. I have gone on some trails that none of my other bikes can handle.

    I just got a rear fender that may work and I have an adapter coming that will allow me to go from that 160mm rotor to a 203mm. The range seems to be 60-75 miles. The bottom bracket is 5 inches higher than my Electra cruiser Fat and that is a tall bike. When I sit on it it comes down an inch or so.

    The Chinese made a clone called an EEB that is the same but with small differences.

    There are a bunch of different kinds. Poke around on endless sphere. I got a vector because they offer a fat tire swing arm but that makes the bike taller so you better have long legs.

    It has pedals because it is still a bike. All of my builds have a Cycle analyst and I use it to monitor things plus provide me with PAS. I set it at 500 watts and take off. 5 or 6 hundred watts will give you 20 to 25 mph. I would rather pedal than hold a throttle. The suspension is truly incredible. On my first ride I was looking for roots and rocks to run over.

    The frame is a Vector Typhoon but I had a problem with the owner Arthur over a poorly packed order. After spending $1500 with them I ordered a few more things for other builds. The package arrived torn up and a dual disc hub was missing and he wouldn't do a thing for me. In fact he suggested that I was saying the part was missing so I could beat him out of $44. I will never buy anything without using pay pal again.

    I am rebuilding it again. I got a Rockshock Bluto, telescoping stem, and an Efneo 3spd chain wheel transmission. I will have 4 X 26 tires front and back. I built a new front wheel for it yesterday. If I wasn't so busy with other things it would be done, OH Well.

    Well.. I can say this much.. In my area I will be looking for someone to help me put together an e-bike. Perhaps you can put yourself out there locally? If interested that is. I am sure someone would love to draw on your skills.. Where I am, in Washington state on the eastern side of the Cascades, e-bikes aren't as popular.. There are some shops but they of course tend to be about pre-built off the shelf bikes. I personally am going to be trying to find someone local who can help me to put my semi-custom into play. I am sure you are way beyond me.. But as with solar, not everyone is savvy. conceptually or otherwise..... You are seen. just out of my league!!! I just need a plan, implement it, and be done. If it wasn't for the fact that I want more power I would just buy off the shelf. Rock ON!

    Well I didn't get one comment on this thread. I don't know why I am bothering.

    I got it together took one ride and pulled it apart. I fooled around with handlebar position and it is better now. I have a few hundred miles on it now. I am getting ready to redo it again. I am not happy with my controller/throttle. I found a Bluto Rockshock on clearance at Universal cycle so I am going to put my Maxxis Mammoths on on this bike. I need to tweak the handlebar position again.

    I need to change the gearing also. It is only a one speed now. The full suspension is truly great though.

    Enduro

    Well i'm at it again. I have been putting this off for a couple of years but now I need something to do inside when the weather is bad. When the weather is good there are so many people on the local bike path that I am not comfortable with all of the crowding. When it has been warm enough I have been riding on the street more than ever.

    Anyway I have an Enduro style frame with a QS 205 50mm V3 hub motor. It has a 6T winding. I also have a couple of Luna 72 volt PF bricks and a Dinosaur of a Sabvoton 72150 controller. I have all of the other parts. As a matter of fact I'm so obsessive compulsive I probably have enough parts for have a dozen bikes. If this Corvid 19 krap lasts long enough I could have a veritable stable of e bikes. My kids think I have a stable now but I only have three working currently.

    Here are the two bricks and the controller approximately where they are going to go. That yellow box is just an inner tube box spacing the controller into it's approximate position.

    Well that is it for today. We will have to see where I am in a week or so. I'm also doing a solar installation on my new RV.
Working...
