Hi current endless-sphere users
I recently have been "lurking" through your threads, for a few days, trying to get the best info from the web on e-bikes, manufactures, looked at yahoo videos, the extreme starter moters on bikes in china, etc., insane but all fantatasic! You guys are the best source I've found, and really have got me excited to jump into this. thank you so much for putting your ideas out there. It really helps that you guys share that personal info.
Anyway, enough smoke up your A$$, but thanks!, the info here is the best.
I currently work in manufacturing, CNC, CAD/CAM, manufacturing. I got hooked into MTB riding from some time in Utah, ride a MTB in Connecticut now. etc.
From all I've read, you guys gave links to such as "chain drive" from Sweden, Currie, BMC, Crystalye, on and on. great info, and narrowed my search.
I'm looking and am going to "Try" to fit a Crystalyte 5305, "Brute", onto a "Speialized Crosstrail", 700cc, rear mount. I know what I want at this point towards the motor and rim, Crystalyte rear rimmed, visited the Crystalye site, want the better Mosfetts, etc., I thought after getting the 76 Volt high amp contoller, basic set-up, get it mounted etc., then I eithier go heavy with lead acid, or high tech/High cost Li.
Main question, where can I get the best cost (Or best deal) on a Brute rimmed at 700c? Quality more important then price.
Please help, I also have a few Machine shops, CNC equipped, for brackets, torque bars, etc., I am planning on doing this set-up, rugged, fast, not a "Micky Mouse" set-up.
