(Bionx electric motor set up)
(Pure barfiness)

I spent the last two days building a Yuba cargo bike with an electric motor. Yubas are made in China by one-armed blind orphan opium fiends forced to weld at gunpoint. They're awful. Electric bicycles are ridden by people too lazy to pedal, too scared to ride a motorcycle, or too smug to drive a car. This thing seriously was against everything I stand for. After work I sat on a bench and looked at Alcatraz while listening to the greatest punk rock album of all time. LAMF is everything electric Yubas are not: lean, stripped down, punchy, vicious, and classic. Thanks Johnny.
