Your bikes look fine have you seen what they're selling for $2,500 and up I have I've even tested one and it wouldn't get me more than 12 miles an hour since I'm 240 lbs those bikes are made for people that weigh 150 lbs. And even then they only go 20 miles an hour unless you pedal then they go eight more miles an hour for 2,500 you get pretty much nothing low power bike is what you get and the looks although they look cleaner they don't look any better than the ones we're building as a matter of fact some of the ones we're building look much better and like you said you could fix them on the fly I would never buy an e-bike as long as I can get kits to make my own as a matter of fact the two I have now in my opinion look far nicer than many of the ones that are sold in stores already made.DIY provides me with the features I am looking for at a low cost to play. But the big thing is that I can adjust on the fly due to open source goods instead of proprietary manufacturer products. I have already made the switch to 2170 cells for a $600 battery that I can use on all three of my eBikes. They aren't much to look at but get the job done.

At some point I want to get an integrated motor type eMTB but waiting until the right unit becomes available.
