'87 Mongoose Alta rescued from the dumpster and converted to e-commuter duty. EBikeKit.com 36V, 12 Ah LiFePO battery. Bafang BPM 36V500W motor. The motor is overkill for the battery. Someday I'll upgrade, but after three years of near daily use the EBikeKit.com battery pack shows no signs of wearing out.

It looks even better out of the box! That's her 3rd electric bike, probably the most handsome, and by far the best built. It gives a very stately ride, as if you're on the way to keep a royal appointment.

If I've posted correctly you will see a pic of my folding E bike. I loved this bike but sadly smashed up the front forks, wheel, stem and handlebars when I dodged a car reversing into me and demolished a fence instead. The company is very hard to communicate with and spare parts seem to be non-existant. I could repair it with generic parts but apparently then it wouldn't fold. Now deciding whether to use existing kit on a different frame with larger wheels...........

This is my Prodeco Stride e-bike. It's kitted out to be a cargo bike with a Thule front rack and Wald baskets. I can carry 60 lbs, and often do, as my Costco runs are by bike including dog food. I've had it 2 years and it still looks/works like new. It also allowed me to build back up my riding abilities so I now have a Trek 720 I use for pleasure riding, and the e-bike is for errands/chores. It's a great way to get back into riding. Top speed 17 mph and I've only once exceeded the range and run out of battery as I pedal primarily.

Just bought 48V 1000W 26" Rear Wheel Kit to convert my old hardtail into a commuter bike between Manhattan and Brooklyn.



Any advice where to get suitable 48v battery kits?

This is my bike where I first saw it at the Ideal Home Exhibition in London. It grabbed my attention straight away. It is so much more comfortable than a conventional cycle style ebike and I could put my books and shopping in the box.
