new here. introducing myself.

hi im new here and i just got into biking. i just got into it so i got a cheap bmx bike from the department store. i left it alone for a while and just dusted it off again. i repainted it hi-temp red with reflective paint coat. i also got tired of the single speed so i relaced a shwinn 333 hub on it because i couldnt find a SA 3-speed hub(i know, a 3-speed hub on a bmx might be pointless to some but this is more of a cruiser to me. so it fits my application. let the flaming ensue). right now im in the process of turning it into an e-bike, im not sure how you guys feel about e-bikes but this is going to be a commuter so id like the extra boost whenever i can have it. here is a pic of the conversion im working on.
