would turn it into a more forward pedal positioned bike, the extra length
alone would have to improve stability at speeds one would think...

I found it takes one and about a two thirds of a full chain to replace a chain on a Xtracycle. The third new chain I only had to buy one.I had to go pick up the chain today. So now I need to install the rear derailleur and chain. Then I need to get the brake and shifter cables run and stick on some grips and it will be ready to pedal.
Then it's on to electronics installation. I have been thinking about battery and controller mounting today. I wonder if I'm going to fab something out of carbon fiber....it just feels necessary.

hella cool IMO...Coming along nice mate good work...
I didn't realize that Luke had started a thread on this. I would just be happy to go up and down the block, but could see doing this after the bike has been run for a bit. here's the link- it looks very do-able http://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=14580liveforphysics wrote:I'm building E-bikes for my parents for Christmas, and I just got done stuffing 10awg leads through the axle of a 9C. A few times during the process I wondered if it was not going to be possible to fit, but by stripping the wires bare and using heatshrink for insulation, I was able to get the 3 big 10awg leads through with the hall sensors wires.

maybe the 10awg for his mum will be OK? ...
liveforphysics wrote:Good idea KiM, putting a 1-turn wind onto a hubmotor and gearing it down something like 6:1 would make for a bike with minimal extra weight, but somewhere in the ballpark of 4-6 times the power. That would be perfect for a big beefy extra-cycle bike like this, perticularly with a guy who has some machining tools and skills to make it happen.
