Solarcross e bike "electric bike"
Update* September 2013 Upgraded the bike, wheels, brakes, tires, and more ... You can see the e-bike can operate on solar power alone : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lqqar1... - I recently returned from a two week long biking trek (700km) across B.C. Canada the bike worked flawlessly and the only issue that arose was tube punctures from thorns.. so I fixed the issue by installing STOP Flats2 tire liners..
This ebike system can be built to convert almost any bike.. some bike models which are fairly easy to modify are with round down tube frames.
The electric motor is not highly efficient compared to a brushless motor... but this bike can get up hills no problem... without pedaling.. but a steeper hill will effect speed... just by pedaling with the motor... speed can be increased alot.. and the battery will also last alot longer... great fun !
