    many smiles per hour / several 1000's km's so far
    testing these days consists of riding through 1/2' of snow on the the outdoor ice rink.. so much fun
    Im trying to learn a sliding 360

    Some pics from last summer/fall


    bunny hop






    1000 watt 36volt motor turns the front ring, however the cranks are mounted on a freewheel..
    I tried to make a video showing how little power this bike requires going up a hill..
    when I also add pedal input matching the motor .. amazing ..
    low & high front sprockets (18T and 38T) with 9 sp. rear cassette
    grip shift on the left hand with hand twist throttle on right hand..
