But unless I go get a different controller, and go 48V at around what I paid for the whole bike...I'm going to deal with it for now....still want to go 48v and replace that long pack on the back. I think it looks funny, and i'd like to get one of the Topeak racks:
I have been riding my DD hub motor on 48v and I have been getting 1200w. If I where you I would get a booster battery pack (maybe a 5s 10ah for an extra 20v.) That will bring you to 60v hot off the charger which is the standard for 48v. I would also switch the controller to a 9 FET 36-72v 30amp after you get bored of 48v. After 3 years I have now been personally thinking of getting the 9 FET controller for my solution, there about $89. That would increase my torque and top speed to around 33mph+ and be pretty safe for the engine or controller. The plus about the controller you get 1. Regen, 2. three speed 3. cruise control. offcourse those addons are extra.
I appreciate that your updating us about the Phantom X, I think it is a great base bike and you get alot for those $1100.00.
I was looking at this controller....which would hook into my CA so I can set max amps, speed, etc, and I could still go to 48v down the road...opinions?
Only problem I have is right now the controller in the PX has a very clean installation inside a plastic box, that the battery slides into and I think the dimensions of this controller would be too big to fit inside. So I might have to change to the rack and bag mentioned above and go 48v all at once...so could get expensive fast....
