That's awesome, it's a really fun project and definitely helped strengthen my engineering and design!
Thank you, that means a lot! I was really frustrated with how hard it was to find information on how to build one so I wanted to be really explicit with the tutorial. I printed the motor mount at 75% infill which makes it really solid. The first version I printed was at 40% and cracked after 20 miles or riding but these haven't budged after 50 miles. Thanks again for looking!
im doing a science research project for my senior year and definitely going to build one of these! You inspired me man! Thank you
Great 'ible man! I make a bunch of boards with a vacuum press and many of my amigos have converted to electric as you have but were certainly not the 'documenting' type. This is a great service to novices (and lazy people) that makes the engineering involved with this project managable to someone without a machine shop at their disposal (as me and my friends do, being at an engineering school), albeit requiring the 3D printer. I'm not as confident about the massive use of PLA as you seem to be, but this is great either way.
