Re: RANS e-Bike Possible?

Is this Your bike or do You plan on buying it? I think 1750$ is incredibly expensive for a cruiser, especially such an ugly one. You can buy much nicer frames (Porucho, Tango, Basman, Dean etc. check Ruff Cycles) to build on or a fully assembled Felt (around 700-800$) or Electra. Just check the crui...

Re: Rejected due to shipping "damage"

Sounds as bad as people I read about who buy items on Amazon to compare in person then return all but one of the items :? One person writing this was thinking he had beat the system when really was a straight up Douche bag Hahahaha! This is crazy! I see his point - Had he ordered first one item, di...

Re: Cruiser with disc brakes?

You could have a look at the cruisers in the electric section on the ratrodbikes forum. It will give You some ideas. By the way there are adapters from Luna Cycles for the BB30 to BSA, if You are thinking midmotor. They are eccentric too so clearance is no longer a problem. I have that conversion be...

Re: Felt Cruiser BBS01

I never liked how the display rested there on the stem and finally put it behind the lamp using the original lamp clamp. I still have two hole left on the clamp, so if I find some soft plastic to cut a shape out of I will be also able to put the on/off switch there.

Re: Felt Cruiser BBS01

I was worried about the handling, it occured to me that it would make for an awkward ark while turning, but after I did that I couldn't notice any difference. Since the seat position is upright (as You correctly assumed) it has that townee bike feel where the rider is just pulling the handles and it...

Felt Cruiser BBS01

Here is my build. There is some cosmetic work to be done yet - front fender needs to be installed, a rear lamp is missing and lights aren't wired yet. They should be powered by the bike's battery. It is a Felt cruiser bike, with a Rock Shox XC32 fork and a Shimano Nexus 3 Inter hub and some other sl...

Re: Oops! I did it again.......

Hi there. Could You tell me please how wide a tire can one fit in that Shokster and how wide is the axle? Would it fit a Felt cruiser?
