    Hello from BC!

    Hi all,
    I am new here but I've been an electric vehicle enthusiast for years. I own a Volt and love it
    My background is in motorcycles and almost no background with cycling so the learning curve with the bikes has been kinda steep
    I have a store bought 500w hub drive bike and its fine but I initially wanted to build my own and still do

    I am planning a hardtail mountain bike with plus tires with a Cyclone and 52 v triangle pack
    I am leaning towards the Rocky Mountain Growler 20

      Prior to electric bikes my primary experience has been motos however I've owned MTB's since they first were on the scene around '80 and had bikes as a youngster before then and never been afraid of a wrench

      Compared to motos the bikes are way easier to work on and a whole lot less expensive =]

      Discovered electric bikes about three years ago and now about 7500mi later!

      I started with an off-the-shelf rear hub and learned quickly that I'd need to move on to a mid-drive - built that myself and happy every since

        Go FS . I've been riding bicycles since the 70's and have put in 40,000+ miles in my lifetime. (sore back now) If you want to save your back discs get full suspension. It will also help absorb shocks on all the fragile electronics
