I could TIG together an extended swingarm for it, but unless its a problem I don't want to do any welding on it. Limited to 8kw and with the batt in front of and below the triangle, plus my fat arse onboard it shouldn't be a problem. at least not until I get a 54xx motor
beware with this wallmart frame
so cheap though... I'm looking forward on what you will come up with. Don't you think a proper race bike need to have a longer wheelbase? You will flip it over really easy if you want to accelerate really fast
This wallyworld frame is pretty tough, it stood up to my QC tests
which involved quickly bolting on the hubmotor and strapping on 4 10lb dive weights to the top tube. And then hitting a 3' drop till I got tired of hearing the rear shock go THUD so I am not going to mess with it. I may get one of the offset seat posts to move it forward a few inches, but it all depends on how it performs.
The race bike:
24s5p 50c nano tech
Badass custom mofo outrunner 205x177mm 26kv
Peak power in : 318A at 91v
Peak power out: 24 Hp and 151ft/lbBuild to last...
