I have a Schwinn bicycle. The frame and forks is an aluminum alloy, anyways it is not steel.
I've heard that it's not a good idea to convert an aluminum framed bike into an electric. Is that true? I'm tempted to try it anyways. I really don't want to buy a new bicycle, just to convert it, when I already have one that may work. (Yep...you guessed it...I'm a tight wad.)
Is a steel frame (forks) really necessary?
What's your experience?
