    Hi I'm from Holbrook, AZ. A buddy of mine gave me a couple electric bikes and have been riding the wheels off them. I'd just like to say you guys' creations are awesome. Me, my dad, and all my uncles have electric bikes and all ride them regularly. One uncle made his from scratch and is a friction drive. Me, my dad and other uncle have electric beach cruiser's w/ 24v brush motor hubs that are modified in order to use lawnmower batteries (much cheaper than lith ion). We link 2 12V to get 24V. Keep them on saddlebag racks. I planning on getting a cheap single spring fork to complete.

    Welcome!

    I'm interested in seeing pics of your uncle's homemade friction drive, and the rest, too, of course.

    Keep on ridin'!

    Other bikes friction drive and hub motor

    one is a friction. the other is like mine except the throttle and computer work. The friction one uses the motor, gear, wheel, and chain off an electric scooter. They both fabricated their own rear bracket.
