I would like some advice on my Mountain Bike non-hub motor project.
The reason why I don't want an hub motor is that I had an ebike with a rear hub motor a couple of years ago and I was disappointed because the weight was concentrated on the rear wheel (I also had a rear pannier with Lifepo4 bat), and the bike was really heavy and hard to park or move when not riding it.
At the moment I only have the bike and I have not bought anything. I haven't had an electric bike in a while so I am a bit rusty but hopeful that new kits and parts have been developed during the past few years. I would like to keep things easy,clean and possibly light.
The ideal range of the bike would be 20km and max speed of 40kph.
For the motor kit I was thinking to use a 500w Cyclone kit ( http://www.cyclone-e-bikes.tw/product.p ... _show=3153
For the batteries I was thinking to use Lipo this time, with dedicated charger and Watt meter/power analyzer, all things I can find on hobbyking.com , prices seems reasonable.
Do you have any suggestion for me especially concerning the motor kit? I read several reviews and I still don't understand if It would be a good buy or not.
Thanks in advance!
