Re: Lynskey Backroad e-bike build

Hi! just got it on the road yesterday, and commuted today on it :) Progress: my April build was going ok, until i hit a tree gravity biking in Breck in early summer. This required surgery for detatched bicep tendon and rotator cuff (ouch) which meant i was unable to do much with tools (forget liftin...

Re: Lynskey Backroad e-bike build

the 36 spoke MA40 on my blue bike has lasted 22 yrs, so going to be lacing up my rear wheel on this project, hopefully with the same results :) For the Rim, i went with the Andra 40: https://www.ryde.nl/andra-40 https://www.ryde.nl/images/news/m3653/large_17829_32.png?3265 "TIRE WIDTH (MM) 28-69" so...

Re: Lynskey Backroad e-bike build

Grin replied offline but is ok with me posting the answers he shared for others to benefit from 1) if you want to use normal modern cassette(s), like the 9 speed one i'm looking for, do not get the pre-built wheel - because that comes with a thread on cogset which in some user reported cases may not...

Re: Lynskey Backroad e-bike build

Questions for Grin: (1) I want hydraulic disc brakes - do you offer a sensor kit that would allow input to (one of) my brakes to disable the rear motor (the one that would be pedelec/pedalassist) - what do you recommend for this? (I saw eRad has a sensor you add to existing brake levers) or maybe be...

Re: Lynskey Backroad e-bike build

thanks for the feedback. i did this frame b/c apart from the e-bike strength and mounts, if eventually i get a purpose built e-bike, i can convert this back to my gravel/touring bike. i'm not looking for mid-drive tho, i'm looking hub motors fwiw. middrive clamps and teeth dig into the BB shell ends...

Re: Lynskey Backroad e-bike build

So, initial thoughts on how it will be spec'd: 1) straight-bar build, not drop bars 2) 27.5/650c 2.1" wheelset 3) 2x chainrings up front 4) to start, likely an eZee rear wheel kit from Grin (questions below) with the 9spd cogset in the back 5) rear rack battery pack if i go dual motor with the 2nd o...

Lynskey Backroad e-bike build

Great resource this place... lurker, first time poster. I love my current non-e commuter bike. But I'm hesitant to put a conversion kit on it (I've ridden it for 22 years, I love it) because I don't want to over-stress it's lovely tubes . I'm heavier than I was in my 20's, so the frame is already ha...
