    ELECTRIFIED Turner DWspot (seeking KingKahn for conversion)

    Electric bikes have gotten into my blood.
    I love my Turners, ultra low maintenance and the best customer service ever...I could go on and on about Dave's awesome bikes.
    I am a rider and will always pedal the trails, but new doors are fun to open.

    So...this new Chinese motor kit just came out a couple months ago...
    It has 1000w of power, bolts onto any frame and only costs around $1000 complete with a battery...the future is awesome.
    This turns ANY bike into a better and more powerful E-bike than any of the Bosch drive models hitting the market that only have 250-500w.

    My 2010 spot was getting retired this year as I'm probably getting a RFX for my new trail bike.
    So...with warranty out of date...I figured why not?
    26" bikes aren't selling for shit...the fun I get till this dies will be worth it.
    I doubt I'll kill it though ...Dave builds a beefy bike!

    RockShox Pike RCT3
    Hope Tech3E4 brakes
    Hadley/823 wheels
    Thompson dropper
    Chroma bars, Hope pedals, Straitline stem.
    StemCaptian Compass
    BafangHD 1000w crank drive kit.
    8lb 52v12.5ah battery in triangle bag.
    55.4lbs complete with a 20 mile range and 40mph max speed.

    Here we go again... :-/
    Sometimes, you need to go fast enough that the trail is a blur to find clarity. -- Wild Bill

    Yes...it is a bit in harms way...
    ...but the motor case is beefy metal...and it is mounted to the bb.
    ...just like a TacoBash guard...barely lower than a 44t outer ring on a triple crankset.
    I'll have to watch logs and rocks a bit...but not so bad.

    ^not trying to go "there" again...hoping this goes somewhere NEW

    The link provided for the motor unit takes you to an different item at Amazon.

    Interested in hearing your thoughts after riding it.
