I've been wanting to build an electric bike for quite some time, but I just don't know what starting materials that I will need...or the tools that I will even need to construct this monster.
I want a bike that can go atleast 25 m.ph. and can travel a distance of 10-12 miles on a single charge.
This is the easy part knowing what I want, but I still haven't even figured out how many speeds my bike should have to achieve this speed. If anyone has made one from scratch that is efficient and not too expensive(over $200) I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Any suggestions and advice that will help me embark on this project will be greatly appreciated!
