Maybe the last update on this thread but on topic I think...
My first ebike but as usual I am geeking out on customizing. Reading on the topic of drive line wear, specifically chain wear; a chain at $60ish only lasting a few hundred miles or even 600 miles represents a major COA expense. I am going to start a thread somewhere and track my driveline wear and costs. If not In this forum I will update yall.
So I am an aging dirtbike guy moving into ebikes. Knew I wanted full suspension because of that background and I knew I wanted speed and utility to haul things. Camping up here in the PNW is great but I knew I would use a moto for most of that so I basically decided to build an ebike SUV instead of an offroader.
The 45°I think would be fine but maybe do like I did if you are going from drops to a more more upright. I bought a cheap adjustable stem from Amazon so I could experimentwith reach and height. Once I decided I bought the more ridged fixed solution.
Here is the OEM stem, the adjustable and the final on the bike.
Back in 2014 I got a cheap fat bike. The bars and height sucked. I was looking for a reach and height solution for old wrists. SQ labs had a great trekking bar but not US available. Found the original Jones bars, but there was nothing that worked well enough to bring them up and closer until I found the Satori. As you say Satori makes quality products.
