We’re asked a lot here a FreeFlow Technologies about our mid drive E-Bike motor and we will we sell to custom frame builders. The answer is yes!
We have designed our system to work perfectly for all custom frame builders, we even make the steel motor bracket. Our business plan as well suits Handmade bike brands as our buy in is just one system!
Our system is compact, lightweight and longterm 100% serviceable at any bike shop on the planet.
We will be displaying at the Bespoked show next month and will have a number of demo bikes for you all to try.
In the meantime here are our contact details as we are keen to talk with any and all about electrifcation of one of your cool made frames.
You can also check us out on BikeCAD.
Lol. I started building one a few months ago and stopped. My heart wasn’t in it with teh way it was looking. These newer compact motors definitely change the posibilities with packaging and are more appealing.
The weight change has been down to design changes. We like to look at the system as a complete weight with the battery. overall you have a system that is 5.6kg with a 300w battery or 6.99kg with a 600w
The system is 60hm, so depending on the landscape and the wright of the kids it might just be enough power.
Please do come back if you have any more questions.
The key here that we wanted to address was creating a motor bracket and installation system that made it easy to weld the frame at the start. I would be happy to send you the integration file if you ping me a email firstname.lastname@example.org
I think I probably will build with the current 60nm version. I need to finalize the design and get a few other things off my plate first, but I hope to have it rolling this spring. I will send you an email to get the step files for the motor mounting bracket.
