$399 Prototype High Power e-Bike Frame DIY Kit

Post by thinmint » Oct 21 2018 2:12pm

Hi Everyone
A few years ago I began working on a company which aimed to produce premium high power ebikes, with exceptional design and handling characteristics.
After 3 iterations, we settled on the commercial design, had over 30 jigs manufactured to produce 5 frame set prototypes. While the frames were scheduled for delivery in July 2017, our manufacturer failed to deliver on their promised date, and instead finished 5 months later - at which point we had exhausted our funding and decided to focus our efforts elsewhere.
I've had 5 of these frame sets sitting in my warehouse since they were delivered - and since I don't have the time to build them out, I have decided to sell 4 of them on here.

The frame was designed with:
- CNC bent + welded aluminum tube
- Tapered headtube
- Use of schlumpf speed drive (Bottom bracket is NOT threaded)
- 155mm rear dropout width
- Intention to be used with 100 21700 cells

The frame will require some basic fabrication to finish. Namely:
- Add shock attachment points to swingarm and main frame
- Add bolt-on rear dropouts
- Add battery cover (3D printed plastic, or fiberglass layup, or even sheet metal construction)
- Machine rear pivot shaft (very simple piece)

Thanks to the trellis design, each frame set weighs ~3.5kG. Coupled with some high power electronics and batteries, you could have a rigid 14Kw bike that weighs ~30 - 35kG.

Considering all the above, I am offering each frame for $399 + shipping. I will be keeping one of the frames for myself, to finish building at some point in the future, so I will only have 4 frames to sell.

Frames are located in Daytona Beach, FL, USA. Will ship internationally, however buyer must pay cost.

cool frame. It looks like you could tuck a middrive up nicely. What is the geometry of the bike in that pic? How much rear travel? Is that a 26in wheel in the back? Can you fit a plus size tire?

The frame was designed to have the ability to accommodate a mid-drive ;) This was the next step in the process in creating a really exceptional high power bike.

The bike is designed for 26" wheels - The photo shows 26 - 2" but it is designed for 26 - 3" tires.
Rear travel is ~190mm!

What would you call the sizing? It look small, or maybe kinda squatty like a downhill. How tall are you?
