  1. Yes people are ass holes with even motorcycle riders. I have had people drive in the same lane next to me on mine.

  2. Can someone please tell me how to order that e bike kit.

  3. That was informative thanks Dave

  4. I built one of these but from ebay… 48v 20ah battery 200 + 200 motor = 400 dollar total. top speed is 33mph on flat, 36mph on down grade… IDK how you got it to 42 mph though….

  5. So how much did it cost you into total ?

    Is it still working good for you?

  7. What kind of range are you getting on a full charge?

  8. What battery pack did u use? Where can I get it. Thank u

  9. *Thats actually a nice bicycle 馃毑 to put it on.. Double suspension. Thats what I wanted to do, something similar like an ultra light E-dirt bike*

  10. Does it come with a disc brake installed??

  11. I recently got done putting a very similar kit together on my old mtn bike, it appears to work really well. Did you leave the blue connectors unconnected so that you get the 1000W instead of the 750W? Thank you for sharing!

  12. Dave’s not here man

  13. How much ah

  14. Brilliant review. Deffo gonna get one. Thanks for the review 馃憤

  15. how many amperes?

  16. With a house like that I think you could afford something a little better than your 10 year old Schwinn 馃槈

    I have a trike I want to convert to an ebike. Do I get the rear wheel or front wheel kit for it? 馃槉

  24. AW rear wheel conversion. My bike shop looked at it and there are two problems. First problem is that my Shimano crank is tapered and the PAS takes up room so that my crank will not slide back on all the way, I can tighten the bolt but the crank is not seated all the way and the bike shop said it will eventually wear out the crank arm since it is not tightly seated. Is there a PAS system that will work in this case? Also the derailer rubs in top gear and the bike shop said no way to fix except to adjust to lose the top gear.

  25. thank you!

    Whats the battery?

  27. What kind of range do you get

  28. I can’t believe I came across your post. I have the exact bike around 10 or more years ago at Target. It definitely is a great bike for what we paid for it. I think I paid around $70. I want to convert it because I have back problems and need assistance after a short ride. I wanted to go with the mid-drive setup but afraid of the complexity with this bike. Let me know how it’s holding up and what you would do differently. Thanks.

  29. thanks a bunch mate馃槉 hey is there a 396 in your Pontiac it sure looks sweet

  30. I’m a very experienced motorcycle rider , and it still gives me the willies going that fast on a bicycle…

  31. Any comparable kits on canadian Amazon?

  32. Looks new, u can tell that she was taken care of..

  33. I find the most accurate way to weigh oblong or weird shaped objects is to weigh myself then weigh myself while holding the object and subtracting the difference.

  34. What battery do you have?

  35. What is the battery, AH

  36. LMBO nice but the fear is oozing from you ! For us big city bike messenger and motocross types, the thing is fun and only cost a few hundred bucks and with a good bike I suggest a KHS or Cannondale this kit kicks rear! Love the video 馃槏馃憣

  37. How much run time or range do you get with the battery

  38. Thank you for this review! I plan on using this kit and look forward to putting it together.

  39. And how much did it cost u

  40. I have seen in the item description that there is a 19mph restrictor, is that print just for legal issues? Or do some have a restrictor? Definitely don’t want the restrictor.

  41. Dave? Dave here…thanks for having a garage named after me..I can’t afford my own

  42. Not a good spot for it water can splash it.

  43. This is a very informative and well scripted review, well done.

  44. switch that front brake out to a hydrlic brake for a couple reasons – 1) (much) more stopping power for your hills 2) less maintenance

  45. Maybe a link to the kit on Amazon?

  46. can you tell me the link I been looking all day I couldn’t find any

  47. What about the disc brake?

  48. Interested… How much or link though?? Should have included that info man.
