Re: Full suspension bikes compatible with a frame battery

They would work good for a mid-drive . When I was looking at bikes or frames I only had rear hub motors . I believe that the Patent time has run out , it has been 20 or more years already , so other bike Mfg's can use that design now . That is what I read somewhere within the last year or so .

Re: Sources for E-bike Frames

tmort, Trikes just have not evolved enough , the ones that are good for people for balance issues are what is referred to as Granny Trikes, they come with the step through design but are good only at slow speeds and can tip over if going around corners at speed. No one yet has a commercially availab...

Re: Full suspension bikes compatible with a frame battery

MadRhino, I have always wondered how well a rear suspension design like that bike you show with its two linkage points back at the rear of the swing arm , with a heavy and high torque DD rear hub . I have passed on buying used Specialized Bike frames in the past because of them having the pivots rig...

Re: Should I add a motor to this MTB bike frame or find another source?

What speeds are you wanting to ride at ? and for how long at those speeds ? Remember : the faster you go the more you will need full suspension , and quality suspension makes a huge positive difference . Slower speeds and a hardtail will be fine, a seatpost like the Thudbuster LT helps . Slower spee...

Re: Huge increase in shipping charges from China

It is a trick they use , advertise a low price to sucker you into buying from them then make the money by inflating the shipping costs. You can see this by all the small items ( not e-bike items ) that you can buy on e-bay that come from China . I have gotten many items lately from China that have f...
