I built this ebike for my wife and she absolutely loves it. The tiny Q85 250 watt motor is more than enough for her (though we don\’t have any hills around here) and gets her up to almost 20 mph. It also has a nice balance of weight with the motor up front and battery in the rear. She keeps the seat nice and low so the battery weight isn\’t up too high either. The original battery is down to about 6 AH from its original 10AH after a little over two years of use, so we\’ve got a second LiFePO4 battery for it and the ebike is still going strong. I\’ve really been surprised by what a workhorse this little ebike has turned out to be.
