Long time lurker... Finally pulled the trigger on what I think is the simplest/lightest solution
to building the perfect utility Ebike. Started with a high quality steel Bridgestone MB-zip 26" city bike.
Bought a rear wheel geared kit with 36v lipo bottle form battery from Doug at in Fresno.
Easy installation took an hour. Total weight LT 45# Will add P.D.W. LED lights and fenders next.

Im a strong bike rider in my mid 50s, but wanted something to effortlessly allow me to commute the 5 miles to/from work and pick up groceries on the way home. This does it, and is a blast to ride!

Very clean and well-done build. Minimalism rules.
