    I am building a electric bike from a kit I bought on eBay for $219 free shipping. With a 36V 250 watt motor. I got a lead acid nine amp hour battery for $57 with shipping $80. Fairly easy to build. The problem I’m having is it has aluminum rim and the brake pads severely scored the rims. Is there a special Bike brake pad for aluminum rims and does anyone know what I can do to fix the damage rims? They are scored pretty deep and sharp I only rode it one day, but didn’t notice how badly the rim was being scored.

    Looking good, keep up the good work there, how does your bike perform, once thing you have to consider when building your own e bike is the weight and chunky batteries and wiring. Doesnt usually look as good as a factory made e bike

    Replace the damaged rim with a New One.

    Two years later, an update

    Just thought I'd check in to say with another year in the books, this bike continues to be 100% reliable every time we take it out.
    My wife loves it, and I love it too, because it makes our rides together very enjoyable.
    The only tweak I've made is to install a stabilizing spring on the fork to keep it from flopping over when parked.



    Gearhubs demystified and other cool stuff.
