No kidding! That frame is exactly what I've been saying a good ebike frame should look like. Even if you put all the batts in the frame up front, you still may need a good way to carry 50 pounds home from wallmart or whatever. But it shouldn't HAVE to be a longtail to do that, and it shouldn't be a hardtail at all to carry all that weight. Hardtails and panniers just destroy wheels unless they are specially built for it. The suspension is crude compared to really nice mountain bikes, but on the street it's going to be too nice for the road cracks and potholes.

SWEEET! :mrgreen:

it's quite expensive, the framekit is about $1500.

yes, It's meant to be a city bike for every day use, so i wouldn't need such hardcore off-road suspensions and tyres.

i think that's not the intercontinental frame, it's this one: http://www.nascha-radtour.de/italien2007/BilderOrginal/comacchio.jpg

I'm expecting more parts next week... I'll keep you posted. cheers

Sorry guys I'm still stuck with some spoke problems, hopefully it will all be good soon.
At least the new X5302 motor design is perfect, and I'm now able to use disc brakes,
which was impossible with the old X5304 disc. Also the cable routing has improved badly! :P

Ok, here is the first picture of my current build. I had to take a old alloy rim to match the 12G spokes that came with the motor. Buy I'm definitely gonna use a black downhill rim http://www.dmrbikes.com/?Section=products&pageType=item&category=14&CategoryName=Rims&itemid=RIMDVK when I get spokes in the right size.

i have to say that this frame is truly fantastic, especially when having the battery load on the back rack. the 5302 is a bit fast so i probably go back to 5304 and upgrade to 72V 20Ah for more torque.

today I did my self a favor and installed DNP 7 Speed Freewheel with a 11T Small Cog. It's not as good quality as the original shimano, but it's the only one that will fit the Crystalyte hub. Now I'm able to pedal easy at 45 km/h with a 53T chainring and 11T small cog i got a Gear ratio of 1 : 4.82.

That intercontinental frame is perfect for Ebiking
it has that extra cross bar that could be a platform for batteries and looks really rugged.
However on their website, they do not have any USA dealers.
http://www.en.r-m.de/products/productfi ... ntinental/

Has anyone bought one in the U.S. or had one shipped to the U.S.?
I wonder how much their intercontinental fully finished bike costs?

I guess they do have an ebike "jetstream"
http://www.en.r-m.de/products/productgu ... jetstream/
but it doesn't look like its available yet.

Hey fellows, got some detail updates on my bike:

Image
built a new wheel with a x5303, Black 13G Spokes from Taiwan, a strong DeeVee Downhill rim.
A x5303 on 26" @ 48V is the perfect combination in my opinion.


Image
bought a nice lightweight double kickstand


Image
Chariot Bike Trailer Axle Mount ezHitch

Image
SSC P7 Bike lamp. lovin' it!


Image
and yes, I found these universal light clamps 18-40mm form CatEye, to
mount normal mudguards on downhill Suspension Forks.

Your bike is so beautiful. Is your hub motor an 5302? I watched your vids seems too fast speeding and Love it.

What brand the tire and size? It looks good also.

i had a 5302 but now i'm going with a 5303 now. as mentioned in the post above "A x5303 on 26" @ 48V is the perfect combination in my opinion." the bike does about 53km/h (GPS) btw

chroot wrote:What brand the tire and size? It looks good also.

I actually don't know the brand "traveler" maybe? 1.90 x 26" it was a cheap one, i usually go with Schwalbe marathon tires.
