Thank you for recreating this, we really appreciate your effort.
We've already added it to the V is for Voltage Forums Community Hand Books » EV Collaborative Hand Books » Building E-Bikes Collaborative Hand Books » Community Members 24v 3/4hp Mountain Bike Conversion Blog, so you won't have to add it after you update this page.
FWIW, we made the same mistake latter with "Chapter Three: Test fitting the motor mount" in the
Kona Blast elationeibke conversion Blog, but this time we made a copy first.
We're learning.

Re: MB-1-E Part Twelve: Jackshaft & Batteries Installed

No problem at all, I'll be recreating the text also as noted "Under Construction". Perhaps you could make my latest "forum entry" a Part Thirteen of my blog (or I will if I can figure out how but I don't want to make double entries).

Since I started out with the Collaborative Handbook as a blog, I may change it some in the future to have a little more continuity group some features (like battery arrangement) and make the text & pics flow better.

I will take some more pics of the MB-1-E in it's current state ... I was anxious to try it out so didn't take any pics yet.

In general, I'd like to make this a good, easy to use handbook on converting a Mountain Bike to an Electric Mountain Bike (from scratch). There are some different requirements to making a E-MTB vs. an Electric Street Bike. I would say it's somewhat similar to a 4WD vs. a passenger vehicle. All components need to be built to take the added stress.
I'm obviously not there yet. :D

... (lightbulb) Now, if I could figure out how to change the ratio so I can go from street bike to the mountain bike, this could be a very versatile machine.
