Out on my e-tadpole today, so I thought I'd get a pic.

I have three bikes with hub motors, but another refreshing thing about this is the outboard motor - especially as the 12 gears are so widely spaced apart (13/34 cassette plus 3-speed hub). It does hills and speed, allowing me to enjoy The cats-eye view and understeer!

Ha! That's the first time i've seen someone using a remote crank to turn an armless master one - other than myself, when i built this:





Looks like our front ratios are similar too (30/38 but i have 28/40), good way to control an otherwise long chain whilst also adding in a final drive ratio.

Is your front fender the wrong way around? Or is it too low otherwise? I guess it doesn't need to be lower, as your legs are out the firing line.. Looks fun, anyways.

Well I don't think the front fender is on backwards but LOL, it's my first Bike E so I'm not 100% sure? Both the Bike E RX (road) and FX (off-road) models have the "mid-drive" set up where the Bike E "C" and "AT" models used a 3 speed rear hub set up without the mid-drive. Yes, the front wheel being a 16 inch keeps my feet from contacting the fender. PS: It's a 27 speed the mid-drive actually has "4" chain wheels, 3 for the front derailleur and "1" from the mid-drive chain wheel to the rear wheel cassette.

Back end of my Volae Team at the end of a 1000 km brevet. My next bike will have room for full coverage fenders.
