East Coast, U.S.A.
This frameset has had many configuration lives - as of today, the build specs are as follows:
  • Crust Evasion medium frameset - steel frame tubes, fattish tire clearance with a narrowish Q, adjustable, replaceable 135mm rear dropouts with an inboard (within the frame triangle) disk caliper mount
  • Crust Clydesdale front fork
  • 52-volt 17-25AH downtube mounted tray-style batteries
  • BBS02B mid-drive, with the bbs-fw open-source firmware
  • Lekkie 160mm crank arms
  • Lekkie 40-tooth chain ring
  • KMC X9.93 9-speed chain
  • microSHIFT 11-38T 9-speed cassette, derailleur, and trigger shifter
  • 20 by 2.35 Schwalbe PICK-UP front tire on a Salt Plus Summit rim
  • 27.5 by 2.35 Schwalbe PICK-UP rear tire on a Velocity Cliffhanger rim
  • TRP Spyre cable brake calipers
  • Soma flat bars
  • Portland Design Works rear rack
  • Banjo Brothers Market Panniers
  • generic plastic front crate
The front crate holds 3 upright paper grocery bags, and the rear panniers hold slightly more than one bag each. Not the best bike for the job as there's no proper dual-leg kickstand plate, but is manageable if I turn the bars full right when loading it up.
