    Battery pack, controller and either a crank or hub motor. Trick is to not get shit batteries, but the el cheapo motors seem fine. Different choices depending on your goal. Personally I want a superman bike, ie I want it to measure my torque and the harder I push the more boost I want. Other options could even be no pedals, but an electric motorcycle like bike. Everything in between is possible. As for which controller, battery, motor? I haven't decided yet. Biggest one possible. If you want to google one and see installs, start with the Bafang as those make a lot of sense if you aren't doing a hub.

    Amazing now if you build your own. Get ready for watt restrictions from factory bikes. I want a BEAST

    That or a small full suspension for my boys. Getting sick of scouring the internet and just want the shopping done.

    If you accidentally stumble on a a 650b or 29+ bike in a XL+ with downhill or enduro suspension for cheap, shout. I want to build an ebike. Would prefer aluminum (LOL, first time in my life I have ever said that about a bike).

    I got some air. Will get more on the next trips. Wet spring = mud. I ride with guys who are setup for mud so I went where they did. Anything real technical I find fun. So yeah, single/double track and air is coming.

    We had fast trails, hill climbs, forest bush whacking, mud pits, river crossings, road approaches, you name it! I am SUPER happy with my 2wd choice btw. ....which means I just spent nearly as much modifying it as I paid for it.

    Otherwise I have no idea why I linked those...my memory isn't what it used to be.

    Matt - Uzzi in Duluth, should get a good discount for picking it up https://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/2491614/ Mpls https://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/2567713/ Arkansas, but will ship https://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/2441304/ ...IIRC you said you liked the Uzzi

    That is my wee 2wd unit going through stuff that the 4wd's were initially hesitant on. Some monster hill climbs as well, but those just don't show in pictures. Not particularly fun to ride a bike on those trails and the spots in between would feel really slow riding with 4wd wheelers. My 2wd is an awesome compromise

    My 5 year old Anova regularly goes on sale for $80. It has been bombproof.

    Does that answer the question?

    The lefty fork should make you reconsider. It is unbelievably stiff and great for strong men.

    Negotiating on this wouldn't suck either https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hnp/bik/d/minneapolis-cannondale-scalpel-hi-mod/6881988299.html
