Marin Nicasio RC Conversion

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada



I wanted an ebike to help with longer commutes so I can have more energy to go on fun road rides after. I bought this beautiful Marin Nicasio RC used because of the upright riding position and 8 speed Nexus IGH which I think makes it perfect for a commuter already. I did the conversion with a Grin Front All-Axle Cycle Analyst 3 conversion kit, with a 48V, 20Ah battery.

A huge THANK YOU to Peter and Justin at Grin for all their help! This bike is so much fun and is really going to help me get around.

My tweaks

I did a few things to make my build a little more polished.
