Only time will tell if it can survive the stress I put on it eventually.
The beauty of it is that if something bends or breaks, you can just fix it and reinforce where necessary, instead of overbuilding from the start.
Sooner or later, I'm going to need to invest in a welder. I think over time, the ideal ebike is something you build an image of in your mind, after all the lessons learned, and not something you can just buy and put together.
