Artur said:Guys we are vorking on a new frame design. It is going to be a mid drive that can work with hubmotor or 4-5k rpm motor. With linkage suspension, and removable battery. It will be designed for around 10kw power and will have right geometry. We want to make it with pedals (you can remove them if you dont need them), and bicycle seat (moto seat will be as option) to make it look as a bicycle to avoid maximum attention What do you think? any advises or ideas?
Number one priority should be durability and quality.
Number two, easy and cheap/affordable to produce.
This of course always is a compromise.
If you have a good base, then with options you can go nuts.
If you go for Scramblers options you would definitely have a good ebike, but no one would buy it because it is far to expensive.
I think it would be great if you could customize it completely with specs as desired.
If someone really wants a 3kwh battery, it doesn't mean they also need front suspension of $3000,- and the other way around.
The options that should be customizable according to me:
- Motor (power type)
- Suspension options
- Paddle options
- Twist or thumb throttle
- Brake disc/handle/caliper options
- Thumb brake or button brake
- Motor seat or bicycle seat
- Motor wheel or bicycle wheel
- With or without dust protection
- With or without lights
- With or without stand
If you could manage to make all options available in your webshop, someone can decide for him/herself to buy a complete bike, or only some of the parts.
