If you wanted to convert a standard 29" mountain bike to an e-bike, what sort of motor would be required? Typically they use 48vdc motors, I think, but is that a necessity? I was just interested im something really basic, for emergencies, 3-5 mile capability. Speed isn't too important,~10mph would …

Say it right - nein dumpkopf! Pardon the spelling if it's wtomg (probably is). I use German pejoratives when referring to my cats. "Beebee schweinhund, baby schweinhund. Little schweinhund". As I stroke their fur.
