@Stefan Mikes - please know I love your posts and respect your opinions (have given you tons of likes)!! I was 193cm (now 191+?cm) and just under 120kg post COVID (want to be 100kg again!). I have broken gobs of CromMoly top brand name frames in my day that are still alive today (started MTB back in 1985). I settled mostly on over sized aluminum frames and except one odd ball, never crushed an American made Can-o-snails! Thus I have a barn full of them and some custom frames too; both Ti and Steel.... (another story!)
bis zu 2500w LeistungDas E-Bike ist nicht StVZO Zugelassen und darf nicht auf öffentlichen Straßen gefahren werden.
Viel Glück. (Euro bikes are allowed up to 250 W nominal).
And... Carbon Fibre frame for a heavy rider?! These frames do break.
A good buddy talked me into my first and currently only carbon frame, a 2008 Ibis Mojo-C. I love the bugger and have hit the thing harder than any Cannondale DH. Twelve years and I t has zero signs of micro-fractures (zero clear coat cracks). If Ibis made an ebike, I would buy it in a heartbeat. A properly designed CF frame is dang near bulletproof! Thus after reading up on Wattwagons and what @pushkar is doing, I convinced him to do a true XL frame (52cm or 21 inch) sight unseen! I will own the first 150kg rated Hydra XL guinea pig on a <27kg ebike with batteries. I don't plan on going anywhere and will post good or bad....
If Euro 750W limits are desired, that too can be obtained at less money (a standard option; as crazy is more $₽¥€£).
I think you saw the old 1999 EVG I’m renovating.... (did first ride yesterday; will report soon!)
