And still kicking! I just got back from a little light trail exploration. And thought I'd type up a long term report. I converted my Purplish blue 26" 1994 Giant 'Rincon' Mountain bike in April of 2015. 48v 1000w Ebay wheel/controller kit and Calibike 15Ah 48v battery. Throttle only no PAS hooked up. After 2 year's, and the typical trials of a new ebike owner..... I have to say I'm very happy with this project. Sorry No pic's But the bike has it's own FB page and blog where you can read more about it.
