Bottom Bracket Drive E-Bike, keep chain rings?
Just doing an elation type conversion, but i am still waiting for my crank freewheel. The supplier said he is supplying two chain rings, so i assume one for the motor, and one for the chain drive.
My query for others who have this type of system, is it advantageous to have only one front chain ring, or should I try and keep my original triple chain ring setup?
What are you doing for a freewheeling crank/BB ?? You say you're buying something from a dealer? Is it new or used?
e.g. when I rebuilt my Charger bike, I ended up buying a used Schwinn (a.k.a. Shimano Front Freewheeling System) thingy.

Just wondering where you got your freewheel cranks and how much. Thanks
My experience with a low wattage motor has been that the more gear selection one has the easier it is to keep the motor in it's top power range. If you can, keep all three front rings.
