To downtube placement.
Almost everyone will warn you against rear rack mount.
That would ruin the handling of such a fine machine.
If you can cut&paste&heat, you could fab. up something for the downtube.

I prefer mounting them on the fork, where they are not likely to take a hit and help retaining the original balance of the bike. The 18 fet controller fits in the triangle, where it has good protection and air flow.

Personally for that frame I'd go down the 'tiling' route, where you use smaller batteries tiled on each side of the frame rather than the larger 6s batteries. You end up with more cabling but you get a better look. Depends on how much you value aesthetics over quick-build i guess.
