Kids love eBikes too. One way to encourage their enthusiasm is to involve them in the build.

This ride is a work in progress. It illustrates all the prep that goes into a build before we even think about adding power.

While it may not seem so, we’ve already made significant changes to what we’re calling the Red, White, and Electric Blue bike:

  • Disassembled old drive train
  • Started the cleaning process
  • Installed a custom-painted riser handlebar
  • Replaced a defective suspension fork with a strong, fixed steel fork (the electric blue of the Red, White, and Electric Blue Bike)
  • Installed a safer hydraulic brake system with a compatible front tire/wheel assembly
  • Swapped out a child’s seat with an adult seat provided by the owner

We love this project!
