That is one beautiful and clean ebike.
I have been thinking of building something like that. Is that your commuter booster on that bike? Is there a build thread on that bike.
Thanks. I actually really like the single speed for just cruising around. No need to think about what gear you should be in, or when to change gears, just pedal an enjoy. Of course with a little assistance at the push of a button for when you hit that hill, or need to speed things up a bit.
The bike was actually pulled out of hard rubbish, but required new wheels. I then cut the bars, moved the brakes, put on a spare seat, and got rid of deraileurs, new chain. Really happy with how it turned out, and this is my daily ride now for heading off to the shops, and shortish commutes. But it is a bit of a harsh ride compared to modern bikes, so for longer trips I will go with my road bike.
No build thread for this bike, as it is only a ten minute job to install the Commuter Booster kit. But if you want more info, check out my youtube channel
which covers pretty much everything to do with the kit. I don't want to spam this thread with embedded videos, but this one
shows the installation in real time.
