Re: Mongoose dolomite fatbike? 7spd, disk brakes, INEXPENSIV

Hi. I've read the thread and wanted to know if anyone could help me out. I'm planning on picking one of these up and a 48v 1000w kit off of ebay. My issue is I got lost on the install of the rear wheel. The op welded a piece on and I'm not sure if it's a necessary step or just something specific for his build. My goals are 25 to 30 mph, 20 to 30 miles and will be on mostly smooth roads and occasionally dirt/slight hills when I go camping. My main concern is if the ebay kit will require more then shims to install on this bike.

Hopefully this made sense I wanted to give all the info I could to get a good response.

You need to make sure the axle length on the kit you buy is at least 220mm long. Other than that, you can adapt all other aspects of the build without welding anything. But there is the problem of the narrow rim that comes on most standard kits. I just bought a bare motor and laced it into a 100mm wide rim since I already had a spare controller and other stuff. I think I've already posted pictures in this thread.

I was thinking of this one. Could you take a look?

I just realized that it had a 175 mm axle and won't work. I can't find any kits that have anything better.

That kit should work fine. The axle isn't 175mm. That's the width of the dropouts it needs. The axle is probably even more than 220mm which would be a plus. Nice find.

Rear pannier is axiom. The frame bag is em3ev

Perhaps the single most important element in mastering the techniques and tactics of racing is experience. But once you have the fundamentals, acquiring the experience is a matter of time.

Its only used for deep mud and snow. Specialized piece of bicycle, for a specific purpose.

Has anybody put a dual leg kickstand on theirs yet?

The stock one pretty much sucks!
