That looks incredible Luis, like it was built that way originally. I love how meticulous your work is. Great job.

Amazing work, the dropouts look like they will be bulletproof, very nice looking build, I could certainly learn a thing or two.

Hi guys,

ninepointeight, thanks men. The secret is...not to stress.
the12be, thanks. You give a very important contribution on this build.

Waiting on a single speed freewheel, and some M16 straight nuts for definitely mount my rear wheel. Orderer a tensioner an chain, but I can install that with the wheel in place. Just taking care on small details.

Hello guys,

Jimboyr6, thanks for your words. Always appreciated.
I will use 4, M4 screws, attached 2 on top tube and 2 on down tube. On the inside of the box, I will use a steel plate, between the screw and the battery box, to reinforce.
I already have the tool, to install the rive-nuts...in the meanwhile, I started another "fun" project.

Take care,
Luís.

This build is so cool. I love how the battery box is coming together. Like Jim said, this build is like a "How To" on how to put together a high end DD hub motor build. Can't wait to see how this turns out. :D

Hello guys,

Wolfeman, thanks men. This is my second build, so, its more easy.
When I start to look for e-bikes, back in 2010 I find a build here, from joeFR, and is beautiful e-bike build. That was my inspiration, and I love is build. He take some nice pictures and made some nice videos.
Now, I try to do the same. Take some pictures, try to document everything, to help somebody...

The work on the small details continues...

Hello guys,

The new free-wheel, arrive today. I need to take the wheel out, so, I change the screws, in the dropouts, to black color...nothing much significant, but looks better.
I take the measure, and buy the chain... the transmission part, is almost over. :lol: :lol:

Hello guys,

Jimboyr6, yes...small things make the difference. :)

That's what I have been doing...small things....drilling the frame to attach the battery box. Make a way to attach the side panels. "Pimping" my controller and wires....small things... :roll: :roll:

That's going to be great when you get it done. I've used that braided wire sheathing with good results before. Also nice for servicing later if you need to pull a wire in or out.

Hello guys,

fechter, thanks. On my first project I used to, that's why I will use it again.
Not done much work, because 4 weeks ago, someone enter in my garage and stole my Scott pedal bike. I already buy another one, but I was distracted by that.
In the mean time, and after some consideration I will use "lipos" again. This time some "multistars". They already arrive, but one off the batteries have 60 millivolts difference between cells. I think its to much, and decide to return that one, and buy another.
The plan is, in the future opted for 18650 cells...but to start rolling i use "lipos".

Take care,
Luís.

On that time, if the forum member can not help, my choise was: Big Blue Saw.
I make a torque-plate on wood and then transfer to metal.
