But I'm not sure I really understand it. Is this an electric version of, say, a china girl with a shift kit? And does the motor mount in the same place as the china girl would?
excellent idea! I think being able to shift will also save on battery power on long flat roads since you wouldnt have to give full power to go full speed.
I used to have a 48v electric bike with front hub motor so know a bit on the subject.
Will Sick Bike Parts do a hybrid system, where the engine can be used to recharge the battery and work in conjunction with the electric motor for boost power when doing heavy hauls?
the hybrid part appeals to me big time. Electric around people and town, gas on the open road.
