ebike Bmx commuter
« on: June 07, 2018, 12:14:19 AM »
I was gonna get a motorcycle but then I though "hmmm, ebike means no license plate" so ima get an ebike instead. plus do I really wanna be jumping shit at 60moh and doesn't a motor cycle weigh like 10x as much as an ebike?

so I'm looking to spend $1500-2500 on a bike
preferably something used so I. can get it half price
geometry as close to a bmx as I can get, 24 or 26in? hard tail?
litewaighte but not like titanium, carbon fiber light. something like a mid school Bmx weight, I want to be able to bunny hop it.
suggestions?

I want a badass motorized, curb jumping commuter I can run red lights on. I know it's only a matter of time before a bunch of fucktards get a hold of these and the police start to regulate them, I wanna have fun now!

Wait until 2200 when these things become regular.

Or spend 900 bucks on a used old motorcycle. Fix it, Fall in love with it, sell it, buy another and repeat.

Until you can carry your fat girlfriend on cross country rides.



You are welcome.

1. Please sell me whatever drugs you do. Batteries have a much lower energy density to gas, for starters. Batteries + electric motor is going to be heavier than a half-full gas tank + gas engine with the same performance

I have been thinking about doing something like this for a while.

My main options were something like this BB mounted motor and a battery pack that goes in the triangle.

You would have to figure out what chainring will clear the frame or modify to fit, but I beleive with one of these setups 35-40mph is easily obtainable and seems to bewithin your budget.
PS: the bike will be well of 50lbs.

hypothetical, discuss the differences
25lb bmx bike with a 7lb attach on motor and a 2lb battery


or a 30lb rigid 80s mongoose jumping mtb
with a 15lb motor and a 5lb battery

or som crazy downhill bike the size of a motorcycle that has 100lbs worth of batteries, motors and power
“a regular motorcycle weighs like 500lbs

what is the point of dirt jump bike geometry on an e-bike? are you planning to jump on it? I would think that riding in traffic at high speed, you would just want stable, predictable handling. 99% of the e-bikes out there are aluminum frames, either hybrid type bikes or hardtail XC hardtails. I am all for people riding e-bikes places that they would normally drive to reduce traffic and (arguably) reduce emissions, but e-bikes on mtb trails is dumb.
