A is for Alistair. Fuckin A+
The more I know about electric assist cargo bikes the more I realize how much I don’t know and the more it all sounds like this
Took the past couple weeks off of work and during one of those weeks Alistair rebuilt my work bike from the frame on up. All new wheels, gold rims, rear hub motor, new battery, new charger, new brakes, new really bad ass kick ass brakes, look at those rotors, new electrical doo-dads, controller, throttle, tweaks, adjustments, fixes and whatchamacallits as well as all the every-little-things that I don’t even know about, neatly secured with zipties.
I’m living in a lugged steel downtube friction shifter world circa 1989 but riding around on a $12000 electric assist bathtub Monday through Friday.
For 5.5 years I rode a Merce Cunningham* and it did the job. But now Alistair has built up the ultimate Patsy Swayze**
after only one day, it’s clearly a whole new ballgame.
know G&O lingo:
*Merce Cunningham = eZee front hub motor
**Patsy Swayze = GMAC rear hub motor
If you’re building up an electric assist bike of your own. Get the GMAC.
