Hey guys! I need to do an E-bike conversion on a Schwinn Ditch 3.0. It has full front and rear suspension, disk brakes, and 24 speeds. I know, is a crappy dept. store bike (I rode the holy *bleep* out of it - replaced the axle 4x before the bike store found out it was the wheel - replaced the cassete x1 - disk brakes full replace - tires same). I'm really surprised it can even last this long
This is the ONLY bike I can use right now, as don't have enough money to buy ANY bike (new or used), but oddly enough, whenever I get paid, something goes wrong with it. Also, my dad's bike is probably more expensive than my bike and laptop combined.
Now onto the main point:
I have a really big hill on the way back from school, and most adults I know who are more or less pros have at least some difficulty with it. I would love it if someone could help me in the conversion. I was thinking of a rear-mounted hub motor? I know it's stupid, but I need to do this. I have access to some machinery if that is required. I don't need a professional setup; heck, I'd be ecstatic if it was held together by duct tape, baling wire, and a prayer and it worked.
I also want help in a design for a front or rear rack for the batteries and controller stuff as the bike has almost no space in the triangle (is that what the thing in the middle of the frame is called?)
I have a picture attached (I found it off the internet as I do not own a camera ) , but the only differences mine has with this one is that mine is black and it's in (somewhat janky) working order.
Thank you all for this help!
