Positive discussion on ebikes and pedal assist bicycles
Yeah I knew that, but for what I want it for 200w just wont cut it. A 720w non hub drive even heats up and cuts out on a decent hill, Back in 05 I had a friction drive petrol engined bicycle and that was great, but they are now illegal here in Queensland. "Ladies and Gentlemen we will begin our decent into Brisbane shortly be sure to set your watches back 30 years"
Sounds like you should by a motorcycle.

Many people feel their lifestyle has a high price, but they're quite cool with that .. as long as somebody ELSE pays the price.
I have had some experience with different types of conversion kits, the most frustrating thing is mounting the battery, so it doesnt loosen up and move when you go over bumps. I have found out of all of them, the Rack Battery kits to be the best, especially the Panasonic Rack Batteries, as they have a really tight fit, when the battery slides into the unit. And they will last you alot longer also. As for all the other components it doesnt matter too much, as the battery fitting and quality is the most important factor.

Don't suppose you would mind sharing any difference between your conversion kit and the ones available from e-bikesrus would you? Prices seem similar from memory. I'd still like to get one of these kits for my MTB so I can commute on the bike more often than currently. Having kids and only one income however isn't conducive to lots of spare cash!
