"Do you happen to have a Bosch/Shimano ebike and wish you
had gotten a DIY hub motor bike instead with an open and customizable platform,
a powerful hub motor, and regenerative braking?
If so we're offering a direct upgrade/exchange of your used Shimano/Bosch ebike
for one of our front or rear All-Axle hub motor kits
that you can install on any bike frame of your choice.
Please reach out should that tickle your fancy.
Ideally, we're looking for people in the Vancouver / lower mainland
who can do the exchange in person.
Your trade-in will help provide valuable info, comparison metrics, and hacking potential
that we will share liberally with the ebike community at large!"
I would have done this.
Instead of selling my used Felt Shimano Steps Sporte.
For my Surly Long Haul Trucker conversion, I debated using a Hub motor or Mid-Drive and opted for the Mid-Drive mostly to take advantage of my previous wheel builds with White Industry hubs.
