My rack/motor mount I am concerned about vibration and durability on turns.


Should I add a steel brace under the neck of my rear rack?

At the very top under the motor would be the perfect place to add bracket.

If the braces are stamped steel, I'd reinforce them with aluminum bar.

Ditto with the front mount.

Whole bikes made of steel would it be easier to weld on it? I have a galvanized strip.

Wrapping the rear with aluminium may also be a stability concern as nothing can bind to steel other then steel.

The rear rack legs /siding would need to be stout in the event of a turn...


That's where I have the most rack play, turns would off set the belt throw but driving straight would not.

"But the thing is, aluminium would have to be drill crafted to (squish) the rear legs without damaging them probably some steel stick to prevent etc.

Take a look at the legs which hold the motor only minimal clearance but I could also add some aluminium where an open slot is built into the rack so bolt on/bending aluminium.

Would be a perfect option.
