I've requested that the replacement motor come in the form of a front wheel. With me and my leg strength causing the motor to go and combined with the electric motor, the back end gets way to much torque. Off balancing to the front tire shares the work load and offloads some of the rear weight to the front.
My second ebike was a front motor and I loved it. Promised myself I would never have a rear motor again and well.. here I am deal with some rear motor issues.
I'm really looking forward to getting this back up and running. I truly miss biking in to work and home again. My brother has lent me his standard mountain bike, which I've driven around the block a few times, tuned up, etc.. but it isn't the same. My plan is to use the mountain bike, so I don't loose my biking legs. Which after my first ride around the area, realized I had already loss some of my leg strength.
All I have to pay, is the shipping. Which I am not sure how much that will be!
