Hoping to make the dealer expo in Feb. and for a closer look on the many new comers. Right now leaning towards Bafang mid-drive that fits our classic bikes 68-70mm bb housing. Minimum 750watt. Though I want to see others - metal gears, robust wire harness, etc..

Desire 52V but prices for 48volt packages with batt. have dropped in the last few weeks. Perhaps due tariff situation blow out deals, I don't know but its all becoming very tempting. Under $500 for all.

Taper square crank will fit - using vintage.

Mating to a Shimano Alfine 8 speed. Shuttered bike shop auction / $70 score for a brand new wheelset built including dyno front hub, shifter and headlight kit. Have the disc adapter setup but not sure I'll use them -safety concerns. BTW: Shimano, Panasonic the two biggies of the cycling industry are now producing their own e-drives.
