Some after a good long research on eBike conversions, I decided - there is a bike I can convert and I have a friend who's a bike mechanic and I don't think he'll refuse to help me out (although I'm not so sure about his experience with eBikes). Keep in mind that it won't be just a conversion to an eBike, but an overhaul upgrade of the bike itself, sofeel free to suggest certain upgrades (like gearset). I am not really sure if the rear hub will allow me, but I was thinking of upgrading the whole gear groupset to Shimano SLX.
Anyhow, let's take electrical. I looked at certain kits like BBSHD, Cyclone and CYC X1 Pro (gen2). Unfortunately for me, the BBSHD is quite expensive in Europe, and the CYC is too loud. So I'm really leaning to a Cyclone 3kW kit as I like how it sounds (watched Johnny's videos)...
However I do have to ask - Are CYC X1 Pro components compatible with Cyclone kit? Can I for example use the CYC Crankset, motor sprocket and thick chain? Can I use BAC2000 controller together with Cyclone 3kW, and use CYC's torque sensor, brake-sensor and gear-sensing?
And one more thing to note: The power limit of eBike motor doesn't exist for my country and the 25km/h EU law isn't enforced. Everyone's free to ride eBikes as fast as cars if they wish to. However that doesn't mean I'll be riding like a madman on public roads. I have a drivers license, and I'm not interested in losing it, besides, the roads aren't really flat (quite a bit of holes and bumps on 40% of the roads). Image, Image
