Hi, well i'm pretty new on knowing about e-bikes, but I did have a little knowledge on E-scooters. I have a Schwinn S500 which doesn't work anymore.. I think the battery is just disconnected.. But is there any way I could maybe remove the motor, controller, throttle and batteries to maybe put it on a mountain bike? Or would it take too much work? Also, what would be a good ebike or good kit to put on a mountain bike? I'm looking for a reliable, long term kind of bike. My commute going to work is just down the hill (which is good) but obviously going back home is the biggest problem, it's a pretty long and steep hill. My commute to school is a little longer, I'm not sure if I could ride the bike on the freeway, but if i couldn't, then it would be pretty hilly and maybe 2-3 times as long. I weigh about 130 (a little on the light side) but since gas prices are going up, i'd much rather just use an e bike since both my work and school are pretty close. If you need more information, please post it.
My Major Newb Questions:
1. What are the laws regarding E-bikes going less than 40?
2. Would Pedaling be a lot harder since the gear is attached to a motor?
3. Restated again: Could I take out the motor, controller, and whatever else I need off my Schwinn S500 to put onto a mountain bike(since I like the gear switching)?
4. This is how newbie I am: I don't know how to make a parallel circuit w/ 3 batteries, i've tried, but it never worked.
As you can see, I need a lot of help, and there will be a lot more questions coming soon probably, all help is welcome and is needed.
