so...decided to take my bafang kit off my vanmoof and put it on my custom ruff bike...took it for a good ride today...I really like how the 3 speed Shimano works with the bafang motor...I may put on a wider set of handlebars tho...very nice riding bike ...t

Decided to fasten some stiff rubber cargo liner that I had leftover to the sides of the pannier rack to support the bags and to help protect them from road crud..I think it turned out pretty good

Great looking bike! What's the top speed in third?
I’ve got 9 levels of assist on it...on level 9 on a flat stretch using just the throttle I can easily get it up to 35 or 40 Kmh.....it actually goes faster than I need it to...I generally ride around town in level 3 or 4 which gets me between 25 and 30 kmh...which is fast enough...but it’s nice to have the extra power when I want it...I ride in 2nd or 3rd gear most of the time...I actually prefer the 3 speed hub over the 8 speed hub I was using on my other bike...I spend less time changing gears..
