Your bike looks like a high-end limousine, a very nice looking machine.
I would suggest adding an additional front hub motor, and replacing the battery pack with two four pound Li-Ion batteries. Kind of like having AAA by your side.

Just saw your note, Thanks! I haven't been on this forum for a while, too much riding The bionix system is still working well, even with my 60#plus bike. I strongly recommend recumbents, especially for us older folk (65+).

Another Tidal Force build

This is my recently completed Tidal Force frame electric bike. The frame was purchased from Oatnet on ES. I put a 9c 10x6 rear motor with a 36v10ah battery. Really a good riding bike.

Hope this works: http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=451820173878

First test ride of "Thing 1" first out of 5 bikes built that exceeds 30mph - 1000W, 48V, four LiPo batteries in series and parallel. Simply awesome!

Here's the 500W 48V version....a little too tall at 26" for my wife.

Good times!

I think you have to find WOMEN BIKE for her!! what I see is not "....a little too tall" .. but really incomfortable and DANGEROUS for her....
E-bike are not light, and when I use my bike with a lot of my equipment on it - it's NOT GOOD AT ALL to use stupid standart "triangular ".. "men" construction... so I use "women" bike long enough -->




..so now I'v got the 500watt wheel KIT from EcoCycleShop.com for $770 and here is couple screenshots from installation VIDEO I did:




and... Here we go.. -->





... Now I need to find the way - how to make some kind of "basket" for my cameras and lenses, as I had before.. but I'd like to have it in MUCH LOWER POSITION ... -->

...and than, get and install this kind of TRALER to it:


All together should be looks like this:


Seems as I will need TWO MOTORS for it.. so.. I'll extend another 500 watt motor into FRONT WHEEL...

Good job Serge! Looks good, but I should mention that on my bike the derailleur drags on the motor in first gear. Try to check it before you ride. Also, the motor is half a turn off (wire should come out of the top). That might put a bit of stress on the wire, but it will only take a few seconds to fix.

Edit: Did you not put the brake levers on? If you get a chance, you should go ahead and install them. You don't want to be giving it gas while trying to stop in an emergency.

And.. I don't get it .. - we replace the brakes levers with those from you kit and connect them into controller.. is it wrong ?

I just couldn't see it in the pics.

You can slide that spring on the motor wire down into the hole in the axle.

Great shot of a Montague Paratrooper thats been converted. They make great electrics and still fold. Check out their bikes at http://www.montaguebikes.com/
They're pretty sweet even without the BionX kit.

My recumbent ebike with sidecar.



The sidecar attaches and detaches in about two minutes, with four hose clamps. I usually ride it as a two-wheeler.
