Hey,

I`m thinking of converting an old rockrider 6.3 the battery wont fit in the frame though,i found a couple of photos of batteries installed upside down, like the photo below,has anyone tried this? The only thing i can think of is installing some rivet nuts underneath and using straps to hold it in place..... any other ideas? i dont want to have to make holes in the frame.... my battery is a downtube 48v it has a bracket to fit to the water bottle holes/rivets......

I suspect you will need to spend a lot of time on waterproofing, but if you sort that, it looks a good solution.
