I figure it will be a good two months before I will be in any condition for trail riding so I will not know for sure if this will replace my Giant DH or not. I also think this xc frame is a better match up for the little mac motor. The old DH was very plush and fun to ride but with the geared mac you could never fly over the bumpy stuff like the bike was meant to do so the DH as it was always was kind of a compormised package. I think the DH would be better suited for something like the LR kit or a high volt DD hub.
When my shoulder heals up and I know for sure if this xc bike will be my main trail bike, I may just sell the DH as shown in the photo here. The frame would come with the KIWI drop outs @135 axle spacing, the aluminum battery pack case I made for it that will fit cellmans 14.3 ah 18650 50v packs and of course the front forks. NO BATTERY OR ANYTHING OTHER THAN WHAT IS SHOWN IN PHOTO WOULD BE INCLUDED. I figure it would be worth around $450 cnd as shown. If anyone is interested in this frame shoot me a PM and we can talk but like I say it may or may not be for sale but I will know for sure by Dec 1...........the other two threads shown in my signature also shows more about the Giant DH during its time in my possesion.
Bike feels good. Took it for a real short spin around the block and it shows a good deal more pulling power up the hill I am used to climbing just down from my house. This bike is obviously lighter than the Giant DH and also this new battery pack I am using has the extra C rating and also a few pounds lighter than my old 14.3ah pack.
