With 24" Rhynolite rim & Surly disk hub on front, bumped the stack height up some more and really improved the ride over bumps over the 20" wheel, feels like going from a 26" wheel to a 29er on a MTB. Now on the hunt for a beefy 24" tire for the front and I see there is plenty of room to put another Oddyessy Aiken 2.4 on the back. Also working on battery mount although the pack fits so nicely as is I'm taking my time. Bike is pretty fast, trying to putt around town at about 20-25mph without goosing the throttle and also pedaling a lot to keep it Low Pro.

Ran into another gentleman with a LR Bike down at the grocery store a few days back, beautiful 2 stage build which was a real work of art, needless to say we shot the BS for a good while comparing notes, he said he lives up some pretty steep hills too and said his bike climbs hills like crazy.

You can see the difference in height between Daughter's bike and the one I built up for myself to ride.

Looking great Kelly! Don’t trick your bike out too much. It’s starting to look as fast as it is! :mrgreen:

Yeah it’s a real blast to ride, plenty of get up and go on tap if I need to get out of the way of something. Glad Mike could get this project to fruition before the prime riding season weather hits hard, already putting some miles on it.

I can tell he’s not trying to blow his operation up into some big huge deal, just focusing on making high quality parts, nice designs and providing customers with a genuinely pleasant and satisfying custom electric bicycle experience.

Thanks Kelly. I truly appreciate the kind words.

It was always my dream to have my own speed and custom shop, not to be Walmart. I'm very grateful not to be in that game. There are some very greedy, very ruthless individuals at the money end of the business. They deserve each other.
