1. I bought some purple bolts and 2nd hand Deore cable pull calipers. I've got to use cable pull calipers as the supplied brake levers have a cut out to the motor. I've still either got to fit a 160mm disc or change the mount.

2. Bell fitted - safety first!

3. Odyssey Triple Trap pedals fitted - bit of retro. The BB is going to have to come off again so I can fit the pedal assisted system sensor and order a front chainring.

4. XT thumbie fitted. I tried a couple of different RF+ shifters but they wouldn't have worked with the twist grip throttle (anyways screw on rear block is 7 speed). Also purple top cap, speedo monitor and suitably named handle bar.

5. So far picky - rack fitted for battery pack (edit - change of plan, rack now for lunch).

Weight so far approx 22kg :shock:

Quick update :arrow:

I've just ordered a 48v 17ah battery that'll fit in the main triangle (help to get the weight forward), an RSP chain tensioner (was tempted to fit a DCD) and a fat copy of a crud catcher.

Once wired up I'll bag up that control unit and get it out the way.

Hopefully it'll be running in a couple of weekends :xmas-big-grin:
