You're gonna laugh but....
i've redecided about the A2B metro. Though it should be shipped to me in about a week, so i'll patch it up and sell it. Why not.
After my crash on my cargo bike, i'm done with small wheels and being low to the ground. They have great power advantages when it comes to hub motors, but i am thinking about safety now.
Anyway this bike has been sitting for months as i've used 'da bomb' as my main ride. When i picked it up without batteries, i was amazed at how light it was. When i put batteries in it, i was again amazed at how light it was; i could pick the thing up and carry it upstairs. And then i remembered that's why i built it that way in the first place, because i lived upstairs for the first 2.5 years of my interest in ebikes. This is the have your cake and eat it too bike, which is light weight and has decent power too.
But a ~50 pound ebike feels like a flimsy lightweight thing when you've been riding an 80+ pound stretch limo of a bike, lol.
Anyway, i put a standalone cycle analyst on it, put the controller back into the falconEV bag, and ya know what... it's still a good bike.
Here it is as it stands.
But i really want a 29er. Now that i've seen a few of them in person, sat on a few too, my extra large size ( 22.5" ) bike looks quasi-comical with 26 inch wheels and me on it ( i'm 6 foot ). Sort of like a mini velo, like below
So yeah this build thread will be ended soon when i find the bike of my dreams, an extended length 29er.
