This is my winter project,
I always liked the Stealth ebike (which a source of inspiration) I find this e-bike clean, elegant and supposedly really fast but I wanted more power, more speed and more range. That is why IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve had the idea of building my own custom made ebike. As most people know, the heart of any electric ebike his the battery pack so my first objective was to build an ebike around it. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve built the frame around the pack to maximise weight distribution.
This e-bike uses a Methods controller (100V 100A) which is software-limited at 65 amps and I run this configuration as 24S 14P (100 Volt 20 Amps total). I used 24" wheels with an X5304 motor with front and rear 9" rotor hydraulic Hayes Strokker breaks.
Ordinary bike forks being out of price, I have used an old CR80R rebuilt fork. Although this fork is not the lightest one on Earth, an equivalent fork in the bike department would have cost upwards of 1500$ Mine is stiffer and is perfectly adapted for my ebike. The frame and the swing arm are made of steel which is easy to fix and cheap to work with.
I also used a large Cycle Analyst display but I need to design a better case for it (everything is working fine) I will equip the bike with (2) 900 lumens flashlight (P7-C) and I will use a DC-DC transformer to power the lights. In the future I will also need a chain tensioner to remove the derailleur which is useless on this ebike and i need a kick stand
