My long range cruiser with small 2x 15l 'commuter panniers'.
Build-up from a bare frame. https://etrike.wordpress.com/2015/07/26/the-blue-ice
For longer tours it got 2x 25l and 2x 35l panniers, as well: https://etrike.wordpress.com/2016/05/08 ... conversion

ICE Sprint 26 with 24" front wheels, 90mm SA drum brakes, Patterson Metropolis 2-speed crank set, 9-speed Shimano XT, 2x B+M IQ Cyo 80 Lux
Avid BB7, 203mm disk, Bafang BPM geared hub (ATF cooling, steel planetary gears), 15FET 45A controller, Cycle Analyst v3, 1.5kWh battery.

For shopping, I've prefer the trailer with 70 liter alu box: https://etrike.wordpress.com/2018/10/07/diy-trailer

That looks really nice Marc. Tell us more about the Bafang hub with ATF cooling and steel planetary gears please. i think your rear mudguard would probably benefit from being longer.

Cheers, Ian

A while ago, I wrote an extensive blog post about tuning hub motors: https://etrike.wordpress.com/2016/07/22 ... tor-tuning ;)
The first image showed the setup in Summer 2017. To better cope with my 60km commute in 2018, it got a nose fairing and direct-drive hub with Statorade and HubSinks (second image).

The short mudguard is a 'design decision' and (thanks to the small rubber 'spoiler' at the end) perfectly able to keep dirt and water away.
Actually, its just long enough to prevent water or dirt getting flung on my head and shoulders. Without the little rubber thingy, it would be completely worthless, of course.

My latest build, on a steel Dawes 631 sportif. after some miles on an alloy Vitus Razor which I built in the summer past I felt a steel machine would be more forgiving on our rough tarmac.. the carbon bars and short stem are interim fitments.. and that battery has 20 amps.. more pics when it dries up outside..
