Hey out there. I'd like to build my own E Bike. For starters I'm wondering whether to go with a "new" tech. steel frame or bike such as the Specialized AWOL. or look at an aluminum frame with a carbon fork and seat post like a Giant Fast Road SLR l . My goal is to be able to tour using panniers and rear bags. For power, I'm looking at either an 8 Fun mid drive or a rear wheel motor. I already have a collapsible Prodeco Storm which is very heavy and is my "grocery getter." So I'd really like to have something lighter for doing a day pedal around Lake Tahoe... Your thoughts.
