As parts roll in I have started to assemble the ebike
Had the panamint frame shipped to Canada from Mexico City years ago as a new old stock frame its still in minty condition without marks chips or paint flaws despite being 19 years old.
The frame is a 21 inch mtb frame = 3.6lbs
Manitou Scrarab Elite fork = 3.1 lbs
Front wheel with Mxus 350w Hub = 8.3lbs
Nexus 4-sp internally geared hub = 3 lbs
xt and xtr with ritchey bars stem headset
carbon bar ends
Started the thread to share photos / videos of my lightish weight ebike build then ride performance.
The Motor a mxus xf07 2.8kg geared hub motor is reported to have 60nm of torque and can make 1hp / 750w at higher voltages.
The stickers say 26" 350w and 36v.which is odd as normally the 48v version is 350w
If you have something similar feel free to add photos or links of your ebike / part choices and educate us.
Will add more photos when further parts arrive and the build starts to progress. Currently the rear wheel is being laced and its getting close to completion
Still waiting for the battery pas sensor and various switches to arrive
Will be adding on a set of mid 90's old stock Rito aerobar clip ons to the handlebars to reduce drag at speed.
I found out they do make a 36v 350w version they call it the upgraded version on ebikebc with a 350w nominal 550w max rating.Makes me think i'll get 450w out of it @48v.
Rated for 60nm torque at 36v , the inside of the upgraded xf07 looks pretty bad ass
