I had a great ride on snowy roads last night. Bike is awesome!
Had some trouble with the throttle getting stuck, but otherwise performance is very good.
After about an hour long ride I had used a little more than half of the capacity – 4200 mAh.
I did pedal quite hard and speed was around 20 mph most of the time. Trip was maybe 20 km?
This evening I made some covers for the batteries – had some pipe left over from installing an air condition unit that was a perfect fit for the batteries.
I also used this pipe to make a battery mount on the bike. I connected it to bottle-holder bolts, using some metal plates to make it stronger. Used some strips also. It seems very robust.
Still lots to do with it:
-waterproof / tidying up cables
-fixing / painting battery mount
-4 more cells (must find out if controller can handle it) – already have the battery
