There's simply not very many of us MBers, and I think we all know it takes a certain kind of person to be a MBer of any kind. We're all a bit eccentric in our ways, with opinions to match. Cynicism is quite common among us, I've noticed. There's gonna be disagreements about things, and some people have forgotten how to disagree with someone and still have some measure of respect for them personally.

Most MBers are hardasses, ya have to be LOL

OH MY GOD! That looks good! I'm making a 22hp ebike, but only the batteries where shipped, the motor kit hasn't been shipped for like... 2 weeks now :unsure:

Anyways, I have no idea where to put the batteries. I have place for what I think is a cup holder? There are 2 random allan bolts in the frame, one almost at the pedal, and one is like 10 centimeters up from it. I may use that as a mounting plate, would that be OK? Put a sheet of aluminium or something on there, and then wrap the 2 batteries with my tape, put the foam around it, and then ziptie it on there? Or should I use some kind of glue? OR! Leather straps! :D
Wich one would work better? Also about the mounting, is that a good idea to put it there?

Thank you man! What battery/motor/controller?

22hp means you’re gonna have at least $2000 into it before you even start the build... believe me when I say this, just go get yourself an EEB frame. I think the eeb can be had for less than $400 and it is way more efficient than building your own. Even at this point in my project I’m still considering it. Probably the next big fuckup I have, is gonna motivate me to cut my losses and buy it. I’ve already spent $300 on frame building metal and fiberglass alone not including welding wire, grinder wheels, and about 30-40hrs.

I don’t like the dirt bike look but hey, it’s all cut out with one of those frames. Easier than a CG build. But not gonna look as good as this. My thing is vintage American Schwinns so I guess I’m just stupid.

See custom battery enclosure thread on ES should give ya some ideas.

Ohh, I alredy have 2100 dollars into it. I ordered all the batteries, kit, and I have the bike too.

It's a velors 2756b fat bike frame that I will mod to fit the wheel and things. 26", and 4.0 tires.

I'd go with leather straps just cause they look cool to me. But I'm old school
