I used to have a Strong GTS but the thing was just too heavy and not that great overall. I had a 2001 Gary Fisher X-Caliber laying around so I had it converted to an eBike.
This is the old Strong eBike:
The new eX-caliber :
Bionx 36V Li-Ion battery and the BLT 10W front light battery
Bionx controller with thumb throttle
Bionx 350W wheel motor with disc brake
I added a bike rack and custom fitted a taillight onto it
Also of note is the special semi offroad/paved surface tire. Agressive thread for offroading and a unbroken thread down the middle for road use.
The busy handlebar. From Left to right: Magellan Explorist 500 GPS , BLT 10W halogen light, Water bottle and Bionx controller.
These ergonomic handgrips rock!
I haven't had a chance to ride it yet since I dislocated my shoulder just last week. Once all healed up, I'm eager to take it out for a good spin. I also want to run some tests and get some numbers that I can use to compare the various features and real world results vs. the claimed results.
My friend rode it yesterday and he loved it. I practically had to pry him off the bike; not an easy task for someone with a shoulder that's still healing. LOL!
More information on my eX-caliber as the season progresses.
