    Anyone riding an ebike w mid-drive kit?

    I'm checking out the whole ebike world for a commuting rig. Don't worry, I'm not gonna ride trails and such, just want a commuting monster for the hills of the great Northeast (Heights). Does anyone have or know someone who has used a conversion kit similar to the Bafang BBS02? I'm leaning toward this and would love to see it in person before committing.
    Thanks!

    I think you're looking for the motorcycle forum.

    Looks like an interesting option. Kind of unfortunate that it requires you to get rid of your existing crankset and commit to a 1x front, though. It would also put more wear on your drivetrain than an in-hub motor (which cost about the same).

    I've been looking to convert something like a Surly Big Dummy for a commuter lately. Seems like an easy alternative to a car.

    Anyways, nothing useful here...let us know what you find.
