Default Re: New Project - Help Please!

Normally I'm all about the 2 stroke gas engine setups but if you need to be able to transport the bike on an airliner you may need to go electric, and the bike you have in the pictures would do good with a set of hub motors but the battery pack and motor controllers would have to go inside the frame where you got the frame bag.

The easiest conversion would be to get the hub motor, or motors if you need a little extra oomph for the hills and lace them in yourself or find a shop that could lace the motors into your 29" wheels. I'm not big on electrics myself but I'd imagine you would want around 1000 to 1500 watts of motor power to assist up the steeper hills, but I may be corrected on this part. If you need to keep all your gears for pedaling the easiest thing to do would be put a single motor in your front hub and that way you could leave the back of the bike alone.
