DP420 seems to be strong enough to hold the bike together.

Epoxy and a bolt or two, right?

and what do you weigh, 75-80kg? Put 35-40kg in your backpack and welcome to my world. 5-7kw is zippy. Why do you think I pushed my bike all the way up to 30kw? Then look at where Luke's CG is on his bike, and the acceleration he must get with the bike still able to mono.

Could I ask where you got the bag from?

Its just epoxy John... no paint at all. It was all clean but not very rough. I think I ll use my greyborg frame to make as a reliable plataform.
Btw I have already removed the cromotor covers to do the intake on the left and outtake on the right perimiter, but now blades for the time being. I ll also close the holes in the stator so the air ll be forced to thru the magnet/lamination gap.

just something extra just incase it fails..
I got some spare carbon fiber, if you want a bit i can send you some and you could use it to wrap around you joints...

edit: I was actually thinking of a way to create pressure in the intake side, so all the air flow in the gap (closed stator), but im not sure the air would have enough pressure. I was trying to find some sort of simulator but i was not able yet.

The bicycle tried to fly and made a nice dive over its nose, breaking the epoxy and making me rethink about the epoxy holding so much weight right above the front wheel.
