DIY ebike with limited tools and skills
I've been researching ebikes for a while, and am trying to find out if its cheaper to build my own from ordering parts and getting stuff from the local hardware store. Or buying a kit from www.cyclone-tw.com
(Motor, Controller, throttle) - not a problem, I have found many sources online. I am thinking of getting this one
Motor Mount - a bit sketchy, I think I'll get some L brackets from the local hardware store and some ubolts and see how it goes
Batteries - I will most likely try some lead acid bats to begin. And will upgrade to better ones if the project works out.
Freewheeling crank set IPS(Independent pedaling system) - finding this is proving to be difficult. I've seen on at cyclone-tw.com and might go with that if I cant find a good qaulity one that is not too expensive.
