    Yep... it has Biopace chain rings on a Deore crank which really helps the knees when the load is high and the hills are steeper.

    The motor has just the right torque to give me a little boost when I need it and is really low drag when it is not under power... an extra 50 pounds on this bike actually makes it ride better... other folks who are bigger than me might want a 48V system.

    Will see what kind of range I can get although our lower winter temps are going to cut into that.

    *** it pop.jpg

    Birthday present for my Pops, turning 78 here in a few days. Overall review: Positive. Works great, assembled as you'd expect, everything worked the first time. I did place one call to e-bikekit.com tech support, which was quickly and well answered, turned out to be a cable not quite plugged all the way.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o00_s01_i00

    I assembled it at my place then delivered it to Pop tonight. The motor is powerful, it'll spin the front tire on pavement. The trike CG is high, so it can definitely get tippy. He liked it. Commented that it's actually pretty easy to pedal, which it is. Geared pretty low, perfect for bike path cruising and grocery runs.

    Very happy with the trike and power system.

    Critiques:
    - Worksman's manuals are basic but adequate for a home bike mechanic enthusiast. Might befuddle the less mechanical customers. The assembly was painless, which is a positive thing. American made.
    - The motor system is labeled by e-bikekit.com, and there were no manuals at all. So I checked their website which was screen-printed on the battery bag. No prob for me, but again, a small nit.
    - It's not a racing bike. Stainless steel parts are shiny, durable and reliable but not lightweight.
    - The tires are of good quality and arrived with proper inflation already in them, mounted correctly! Major positive to Worksman for that.
    - Wheels are tight, straight and true.
    - Overall as I said, it seems to be a very well-built and reliable bike, when used within it's limitations.

    Lightbulb 2009 eZip Trailz LS ... Cruiseified!

    Got a 2009 eZip Trailz LS (Low Step).
    Turned it into my "Comfort Cruiser".
    Added my "homemade" 25.9V 31.2Ah Li-ion battery pack.
    Regeared from a 20T to a 16T motor side wheel sprocket.
    This moved it up to a near 20mph cruising speed.
    For comfort:
    2.125" comfort Whitewalls
    Suspension post
    Big comfy seat



    Economy test run provided almost 50 miles at 16mph ... motor only!

    Here's a pic of my latest creation. It is a Motobecane Gran Turismo (essentially a Trek 520 copy) that I converted.

    It is a great improvement over my last creation. Here are the specs:

    24V/30ah LiFePo4 battery pack
    24v/900w Currie motor w/15 tooth freewheel sprocket
    90t #25 drive gear/sprocket

    I don't know what other specs to post. This bike is really fast. Way faster than my Bianchi converson. I can hit 28mph on a flat, have hit 32.2 on a slight down, 25 is easy and it powers up most hills at about 17 mph. It is awesome. I love it.

    I haven't tested the range yet but was able to go 11 miles on all electric and still registered 26.2V on the pack (not a good indication since lithium has a steep dropoff at the end).

    Hi all. I'm new to these parts. I just bought a Stromer ST1 Elite e-bike yesterday. It's all pedelec, so more cardio than I was expecting or prepared for, but it was a blast. I'm new to the world of e-bikes (well bikes in general), but this will be my new commuter bike. Six miles of hills to work, and then six miles back. Totally easy with this bike...

    Great bike RobotCruncher, I saw a video on Youtube by Stromer where they said that a thumb throttle is available as an option for that bike, I have pedelec & thumb throttle but use the thumb throttle mode exclusivly..anyhoo..good luck nice wheels.

    Here's my latest creation. It is a Motobecane Gran Turismo with a 24V, 900 W motor (mid mounted so all gears can be used with the motor), 24V, 30ah LiFePO4 Pack mounted in a Falcon EV triangle bag. This baby flies. I've had it up to 34.8mph and it easily attains 28mph with my fat 225lb butt on it (top speed appears to be limited by wind resistance as it was attained in only fourth gear but switching to fifth actually caused speed to decrease). Love this bike!!!2013-06-25_10-06-59_842.jpg

    Yeah I've never seen an ebike, except in China. They were all over the place in Beijing in 2008, but not half as nice as the ones I see in this thread. Cool!
