The Juiced Riders ODK ready to run some errands!
The ODK has a very large step through area which is very nice when you are carrying heavy cargo; it makes getting on and off the bike very easy. It also will fit many people.
This is an additional cross tube in the step through area that helps reinforce the aluminium frame of the ODK.
The ODK has an aluminium frame with reinforced gussets to make it a stout cargo hauler.
This is the Bafang 500 watt geared front hub motor. This thing can peel out!
The Promax front mechanical disc brakes with 180mm rotor provide solid stopping power.
This is the Promax rear V-brake mounted under the chainstays.
The ODK comes equipped with the Shimano Nexus 3 speed internally geared rear hub which keeps the drivetrain clean and simple.
The Kenda e-bike specific tires are used front and rear. The inner tubes are 4 times thicker than normal tubes and if you use Slime sealant the chances of getting a flat are pretty slim.
The on/off switch for the bike is on the front side of the battery just below the seat. There is also a fuse for the battery located on the other side.
The controller is mounted just in front of the battery. It looks like it is easy to change out if there is ever a problem with the controller.
The charger connection is on the back of the 48 volt 15 ah lithium ion battery pack. The pack is housed in a custom aluminium enclosure and integrated into the rack.
View of he ODK command center! Twist grip throttle and bell on the right and control display and Shimano Nexus 3 speed grip shifter on the left.
The control display shows the battery level and has the cruise control button. The cruise control was very handy on long uninterrupted sections of road. To enable it, get up to your desired speed and then push the button and let go of the throttle. It discontinues as soon as you grab either brake lever or twist the throttle or push the cruise control button again.
This is the wiring harness that consolidates all of the electrical wires and keeps the bike looking clean!
The Tektro brake levers have sensors that will cut off the electrical assist when you grab the brake levers. And that is true even if you still are twisting the throttle.
The ODK comes equipped with a comfy saddle from Velo.
And here is the big trunk! This is handy for picking up groceries and other items on errand routes. It could also be used by restaurants and messenger businesses for local deliveries.
The big trunk comes equipped with a lockable latch which is handy when you are out running multiple errands.
The interior of the big trunk has a little bit of insulation for the food delivery option.
The backside of the big trunk is a nice back rest!
Yours truly out on the ODK!
