Aluminum sensor guard for Shimano ebike wheel sensor. The chain stay mounted sensor is the Achilles heel of the Shimano ebike platform. All it takes is a stick in the wheel and you are stuck pedaling that 50+ lb ebike home with no power. So far so good for testing. I utilized the stock chain stay bolt and disc brake zip-tie anchors, for a solid mount that does not even touch the frame. The ‘window’ allows for sensing the spoke-mounted magnet, while the open-back design allows debris to fall away. I imagine this will be unnecessary in coming years as manufacturers realize how vulnerable this crucial component is, and find ways to integrate the sensor into the chain stay. Mounted on 2020 Norco eRange, best bike I’ve ever ridden.

 I rode an E bike from Ohm bikes. Solid commuter bike. The torque is f,cking unreal! These are definitely motor bikes not mountain bikes.
I commute full time by bike saving up my loonies for one of these. But trail riding .? Sorry bro never happening.

 It’s a mountain bike. I ride it into the mountains, where I build mountain bike trails, which I ride on this bike and other mountain bikes. I can’t wait for the day someone says something like this to me in person, on the trails I have spent the past 15 years building. Around here, the only people that complain about ebikes are the same ones that never help dig/maintain trails.

 It's a bike with a motor is it not? Something you would not want to pedal if the motor did not function. Your words. I don't do maintenance or build trails? That's a low blow and you don't know me and you haven't bothered to look at my profile. Or you would see my pics of trail maintenance and the trails I have built.

 Yep hard to argue that, it’s a mountain bike with a motor. I didn’t say you dummy, that’s the case where I live. Don’t know why you feel the need to solicit your bike commuting divinity over a picture of a bike part. Why even comment? Troll elsewhere loser

 I was trying to relate a as in i plan to purchase an E bike yet have a different oppinion of where they have Merritt. Your overly defensive comment is less than mature. If you think I don't want E bikes/ motor bikes on trails you are most correct.
Some people can handle a different oppinion. You obviously can't.

 Dude this is a picture of a bike part I made. If you care to comment, make it relevant. You think you are high and mighty for bike commuting, felt the need to drop that in there. Anti-ebike on trails, good for you man! Do you need a medal or something? I will buy you a f*cking medal, but no one asked for your opinion.
