Flip the bike upside down and hit the throttle and eyeball the wheel, I assume the front is vibrating and you do say the front is the hub right so that is a good way to figure that out.

A friend of mine died that way about 10 years ago and the culprit got manslaughter and a year in frocking jail, I hope it cost him a ton of money to pay the lawyer but he was...

There are many things to take into consideration like can you parallel anot...

Re: Long board build for work?

It is personal preference also how high do you want to go and what size wheel do you want and do you want a motor that is apart of the wheel or do you want the motor to be not apart of the wheel.

The triton ebikes are probably like the infamous shitty absolute crap 3v 5.4L 2004+ ford triton engines.

That seems to be the norm these days what I hate is when they dont even list an address whether real or fake.
Note that they do not have a "Brick and Mortar" address
