    Will the motor / system detonate if set up for 26/700 and used on 20”?

    If you get a Intuvia or a Kiox, you can set the wheel circumference manually which will keep the speedo and odometer straight. If you get a Purion, you'll need to convince a Bosch shop to correct it in the diagnostic software or suffer the motor cutting out before you reach the actual speed cap.

    where would one find a motor/battery?

    You can walk in and buy a powerpack from any Bosch dealer, they're between $700-$900USD generally. A drive unit will be harder - those are typically only available via warranty...

    How did you come across a bike with no power pack or drive unit?

    I have found some for cheaper postage, but a friend may be making some as well.

    Nice. I recently jumped on Blue Lug's free postage sale to buy a shameful amount of steel and brass bits and bobs.

    Nothing says "functional" like using aluminum spacers with a steel stem :P

    Need to upgrade stem and handlebars to something more bunny hoppable

    That's a shame, the bars are a big part of the cool character for me.

    Or anything nicer than a department-store single-pivot.

    Ridden pretty much every cargo there is including those XYZ jobs (look a bit like a product launch event stand with wheels on). Found when riding a UA that I do a tiny zig zag constantly, not sure if steering head angle/seat tube angle/BB so far forward/steering ratio/combination of all those things. They do have good payload solutions.

    Interesting. I'll have to look into that. Thanks.
