I will with the new ebike I'm building this winter, you need a triple fork to be able to mount a pack up front secure enough for the trails.
Trail riding was the main reason I got into ebikes, we have a lot of fun single track. It takes it's toll on ebikes, so you really have to secure things well, have a balanced layout and reduce any loose wiring if you plan to do a lot of trail riding. I crash quite a bit during a riding season so I over build my battery mounts and practically everything else. My new ebike is going to be such a beast, that if things break then it's going to be a serious crash. More likely I will be the one broken.
I do have other ebikes for errands and street riding.
No problem helping out, I'm glad to see another local ebiker. You would think there would be more by now since it's so fun and useful.
Your build is going to be similar to my Motobecane, what geared motor did you end up getting?
I just read your entire thread on your motobecane build, great stuff in there! I'm surprised you didn't try a front mounted pack, something that mounts to the steering head. Looks like the frame you are using is a bit smaller too, I wanted an XL to fit all the amp hours I could in the frame
Cool that you are just a few minutes down the road, and know your stuff well, I'm sure i'll have some q's along the way and experienced opinions mean a lot to me. For the most part I've just been riding urban streets on a GT avalanche with a couple other buddies, but would like to get into some more trail riding. Up to this point I just took my ATV on trail's, but this ebike thing is going to open up some new opportunities! For the record I have never even seen a ebike or an ebiker to this day, so I'm glad to make my mark on Harrison Twp
