bike recommendation?

Post by cana77 » Mar 10 2018 10:34pm

Hey all,
Does anyone know a bike that would fit a magicpie edge front hub motor 26".
I know it needs a steel frame, i just cant find any good bikes for that.
I am going to be mounting the battery in the frame of the bike.
Links to pages or bike names would be helpful.
Thanks Chad

Why a front motor in the frame? Or are you talking about putting it in the fork?

Then you need a steel fork, but not a steel frame. The frame can be made from whatever. It helps to be made of straight round tubing if you're going to mount things to it, though.

Ride on smooth roads? Or bumpy dirt trails? Important that bike fits the rider. Good place to look at and learn about bicycles is a local bicycle shop or Walmart. Bring a magnet so you can tell if forks are steel. Garbage picking and Craigslist are good ways to find used bicycles.

I would not use that frame! The neck bars are weak looking, a ft motor would tear it apart! The diamond is kinda small and there are better choices at Wally world.

Neck bars?

The Electra Townie is a far more proven bike than anything sold at Walmart. There's no contest. Townies get more use than most other bikes and their owners seem to like them more. They have a motorcyclish riding position that seems like a great match for an e-bike. Everything about the bike in the picture is typical of a typical non-suspension mountain bike, except the rider's posture.

I've had an Electra cruiser for fifteenish years now, and it's a little heavy but sound as can be. I'm in the process of electrifying it for a friend of mine.
