Everyone loves to look at petite girls. The top five actresses are all under 5'6" and 110lbs. But Most of us know when no one is looking, its their chunky cousin we'd rather get in bed. We all secretly want some meat to sink our teeth into. some cushin for the pushin. It may not look as good, but it feels so right. Lets face it, Kate Moss, or Drew Barrymore. We'd all rather be with Drew and her wonderful curves.
The Same is true of Ebikes. That scrawny 7 lbs Carbon fiber race bike looks sexy on the track, but we all know we'd break that fragile thing if we rode it the way we really want to. We want something with Meat. Curves. Padding. Something that can withstand us pounding on all day and night.
Its with this in mind, I started my latest Ebike. its actually been going for a while. a year in planning, 6 months in building, though I have little to show for it. I had to build the tools to build the tools to build the bike first.Welding tables, frame jigs, ect.
Its going to be a full suspension, hand built frame with 4" tires powered by a Monstrous Clyte 5404. I'm planning to push 12,000 watts, but I'll start at 5,000 and work the bugs out first.
All this is meaningless without pics, so here:
Having arrived safely, Monster sees the light of day for the first time.
Monster looking sexy in her sassy Panties. (Girlfriend is going to kill me for these pics)
Monster being coy, flashing her spoke lips, just waiting to be mounted.
This is what happens when no one has a 100mm bottom shell in stock for 4 months....
I make my own out of 2 66mm
Front wheel going together. 65mm rim, 20X110mm axle
More to come.
