Sounds better than the usual "what's yours is ours, what's mine is mine"
But thats at nominal 66v at the end of the pack so I can safely say it should hold the 45mph/70kph ish in the flats maybe a little more for the first few miles with a fully charged pack
Yeah with a 15ah lipo pack you won't be dipping below 70v for the first part of the ride. With the controller only pulling 45a you'll probably sit around 72 actual volts.

Not really. I recently dropped down to a 24" and there's not a hugely noticable difference in torque. Mind you this was a 9C vs a GM so there'll be differences anyway. This is also with a 45a controller, on my commuter. There is a little drop in top speed and to be honest on a commuter I'd rather the top speed than the supposed slight increase in torque. Going to 20" will give you more (and really eat into your top speed) but the bike will look dicky, you'll have trouble with the pedals hitting the ground and with a bloke your size on it at the speeds you do I'd be worries about how the handling with the changed geometry.
As for regen, in my experience it's not noticably any stronger in the smaller wheel. If you want more torque up the current (or voltage, or both
But as you say with a 12 fet and that winding you're pushing things to the limit
