I would eventually like to convert this into an E-bike
Submitted by Alias on Sun, 12/16/2007 - 20:01
So this evening I have been doing some more research on appropriate hub-motor kit conversions.
In the future I am looking into converting my mountain bike into an e-bike on my own for the first time.
I would like to do this in order to save money on gas, I literally fork out $50 for a full-tank.
I have been looking into brushless hub-motor conversion kits for my bike. I have also heard of Crystalite on the forums
not sure if that would be more appropriate and less expensive?? I am mostly interested in using a rear-wheel hub motor.
On my mountain bike I also have a tiny built in spedometer (go figure!)I knew I should have gotten a picture of that!
Could I still use this spedometer thing along with the conversion kit or would it just be out the window??
Any suggestions would be helpful, thanks for reading!
This is my bike (sorry for the funny looking tire in the corner, that's my other bike hanging in my garage).
