I found a workable bottom bracket and soldered up the brushless motor leads today - and the PAS sensor arrived too. Figured I'd hang everything with rubber bands and bags to test the electric assist system a test between rain showers.

Worked well too. Topped out at 18mph, though the assist seems to come in a bit slow. I couldn't really hear over the rainwater being lapped up by the tires. May have to try an eight magnet sensor wheel instead of five.

Despite the mess upstairs (temporary - battery will be fitted between the seatpost and the rear fender), the motor wires aren't that obtrusive. I might replace the yellow MT60 connectors (the visible ones, anyway) with black ones later on.

It's also wearing MKS FD-7 folding pedals now, thanks to AeroGut .

Now that's a proper (and attractive) fenderline. Still hemming and hawing over bending a spare set of stays to bolt up to the brake booster.

Also, the wheel has been re-spoked with all the spokes on the inside, crossing, per the lacing of the 350W motors on the JUMP 5.5's.
