Any way at all to electricize an aluminum frame?
From what I have read [from this site and from ampedbike.com] it is not advisable to use aluminum frames. Is there any way at all my bike can be converted to electric power that I haven't considered????
I have a frame that my specs say is made of "superlight ALUXX Butted Fluidform Aluminum." It has mechanical disc brakes and there are no shock absorbers.
It is a Giant Transport LX, which is a kind of heavy duty cargo bike.
I have tried to post a pic several times but apparently my computer is smarter than me. I have sent an email to the webmaster inquiring about posting pics, but as John Lennon once said there was "No Reply."
Thanks in advance.
