BTW, I reached out to Golden Eagle Bikes, I thought their setups were cool; I have never met such an arrogant bunch of people in my life. They sniffed at me when they found out my bike had “29s”
The Golden Eagle Bike kit or a similar set up would be your best choice.
The GEBE sheave is designed to clip onto 36 spoke wheels.
Lightweight small 35 cc 4 stroke motor that gets great gas mileage.
An easily disconnected drive belt so you have zero drag pedaling.
Electric hub and battery will add a lot of weight, most ebikes are 60lbs ++
the charge won't last long on hills and where are you going to charge when
you really need it?
3 to 5 hours to charge.
