i will be using the bike mainly on the weekends for recreation and it will be replacing the gas schooter that i use now.
Congratulations, Uncle Ben.
Let papamotors know you won't need their free wheel; instead, order it from ebike.ca and also get the new cycle analyst from them too. I also bought their version 4 torque arms since the ones that Papamotors offers are for front wheel setups. Also, get Papamotors to give you a larger PAS magnet ring. Measure your bottom bracket and relay the dimensions to Papamotors. I had to dremel mine. If you use the PAS you will only use the thumb throttle to get you moving after you've stopped completely.
Order the cargo cache to hold the battery, controller, etc. If you'd like I can get you the same setup I built for my bike. I can put a price list together and you can pay for me to get the materials and shipping to you via PayPal once I have made the changes. I have a lot of extra material left over. Of course, you'll first need to make sure this bike rack can fit your bike: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o05_s00_i00
Have Papamotors also take off the price for the rear tire and inner tube and just ship you the hub motor and double walled rim. Order these parts instead: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o00_s02_i00
or get the inner tube for your size rim. Also install Mr. Tuffy tire liners: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o02_s00_i00
Do you have a bike you plan to put this on? Pictures?
There are more parts outside the Papamotors' parts but this list is a good start and it's what I have on my e-bike.
Oh, you will end up riding the e-bike every chance you get...it's addictive.
