I can take pics tomorrow.

300watt + pedaling essentially doubbles your pedaling "effort" cruisewise. I can do 25~30 mph If I work it; but cruise as long as I want at 22~24.

I'm far from in shape, and it is a full suspension mountain bike with knobby tires.

I built the bike with the money it would have cost me to park for a semester at school. In the end I figure I ended up with a $100 bike (spent too much$).

I do still need to do some work on it. it needs a Light, switch, horn Desperately; However I've run completley out of handle bar room. (2 Brakes, 2 shifters, Cycle computer, Whatt's up, and a load cables that need to be trimmed down to size.

On a side note WEAR A HELMET!!!!!. NO BODY EXPECTS A BIKE TO GO THIS FAST. I would "speed" (5 over) through a neighborhood + school zone everyday. I would get passed by EVERY SINGLE SUV, when they realized they were doing 15~20mph over the limit; they would nail the breaks. I rear ended 1 of them and let me tell you, it hurt (no injuries/ damage).
