Re: Can I and should I do this

The pedal drop is more like 2", since the bottom bracket is located about 60/40 between front and rear axles. You could put a 36 tooth front sprocket on and some shorter cranks. Are you sure the OP wants to keep the 26" on the front? Looked to me like OP wants to go 20" on both F/R: ...

Re: Can I and should I do this

Questions: 1. It has 26” tires on it now but would like to put 20” on it. I am older and want to have my feet on the ground and also have trouble swinging my leg over as my balance isn’t what it use to be. Can I safely put 20” tires on it? Will I need to change out the front suspension to something...

Re: Hailong 03 down tube battery - how to attach it appropriately?

Add a few more rivet nuts (sometimes called "rivnuts") to the DT. Four should anchor it better than two, no? 5mm is standard but you could easily install 6mm. If you feel you lack the skills (check YT for adding rivnuts to bicycle frame) most good bicycle shops do this routinely, no big de...

Re: What are the best ways to build a two wheel hub mounts e-bike?

I remember seeing a Micah Toll youtube video explaining this a few years ago. Seemed rather simple. Two controllers, sharing one throttle IIRC. He was doing two wheel burnouts on the beach!

Wide tires can be had but is there room for them on your frame?
