Iíve been thinking about a conversion for our tandem and have been wondering about front hub systems. Ours is a vintage Motobecane and I think the French bottom bracket threads rule out a mid-drive system. This system looks pretty slick. If you donít mind my asking, did you install it yourself? What sort of range do you get with it in the real world? (I know thatís a hard one to transfer from person to person because of variations in boost preference, terrain, and such, but real experiences are still really good to hear.)

It is slick. Very easy to fit. Cables are custom length. 30 min for solo and a bit longer for a tandem. I’ve fitted 4 solos and one tandem with no problems.
Range about 35 miles in flat Florida, but we have also added a backup battery which is fitted into a Cytronex holder.
Can be taken on aircraft as the “bottle” consists of two batteries, each of 98Wh, i.e. below the 100Wh limit.
Ships from UK. No 20% sales tax (VAT) and we have never had to pay import duty. Delivery about 4 weeks. Excellent after sales email service.

First ride on our new to us coupled bike. Tackles the hills so much better than our gravel setup tandem.

How awesome! I just rode it solo the first time one year ago and wow!! We no longer have our tandem but I can imagine how amazing that must have been. Well done.

The frame builder is Brad Bingham, of Bingham Built in Steamboat Springs Co. He previously worked with Moots and Kent Eriksen and now solo. Incredible workmanship.

The south rim of the Grand Canyon in the last happy days before the pandemic shut down the country and we had to make a beeline home. We hope to get back this year and ride the rim again.

That's what we did back when we were touring: put everything on the back and put up with very low speed handling issues. On our bike, we couldn't stand without the thing becoming a snake. We had the weight pretty well stripped down for a camping and cooking tour, 44 lbs. total IIRC, including all tools, spares, etc.. We stayed in a hotel about every 3rd or 4th day. We went to REI and spent a pile of money, but we hike with the same gear, so it amortized quite well.

This is old now, but I just realized I hadnít posted it. I think my youngest daughter is big enough for the back of the triple, so Iíll have to try that this summer. Stay tuned!

In a cycling event in the Columbia Gorge and happy we made up it to this viewpoint. We started near that bump (a volcanic plug) along the river in the background between us. The first part of the route was on a multi-use trail that required portaging bikes up a staircase. This made for some entertainment as families with small kids were on that part of the ride. The guy who took this picture was vacationing with his family from Louisiana and was gobsmacked by the mountains here and by seeing so many people riding bicycles in them.
