i have heard from a crystalyte dealer that the phoenix brute is not safe to use on any bike it has caused frames to fail even though they are steel
here is the email i got from a local crystalyte dealer
That is a very dangerous motor and does not belong on a bike frame or on the market.
Do you realize that this motor weighs over 25lbs!!
No bike commercial bike fork can support this motor and you risk serious injury or death using it.
On top of this, electric rider/Dave Durker is the most dis-honest dealer in our business.
I get many of his customers after he screws them over.
He has also done this to many dealers in this business.
Do yourself a favor and stay away from the Phoenix motors and this guy that is selling them.
has anyone had any issues with frames failing or being ripped off and such?
