Re: Hill climbing commuter build

What's fun about DIY is that we get to prescribe the priorities. There is so much diversity here and our backgrounds vary so much. I hear and get and appreciate all of the gentle push back. I was pretty aware of the considerable downsides of this build before I got into the build. I actually have a ...

Re: Hill climbing commuter build

Input on hill climb build

Wanting to build a commuter that will see a 5 mile 8.5% hill, carrying groceries. Would like to scoot up the hill at 15-18+ mph. Want a DD hub motor. Want peak power to be 1200-1500 Watts. It will be a shared family bike, so needs to be designed conservatively. Playing around with the simulator poin...
