2. I have the stock 48v controller but I like to use my BMSBattery 36v controller because I really like regen. Or I would need new brakes because the little rubber pads on my bicycle scare me a lot.
3. I already purchased 16 A123 20AH cells so I can use 12s or 16s. Which one should I use?
4. I need a torque arm. Any suggestions?
5. What would be the most effective way to mount these A123 batteries?
6. Securing the bicycle: I'm going to be riding this on a college campus so I need a way to ensure that my bicycle stays mine!
1 - I think you'll be fine with your phase wires
2 - regen = quality torque arms/plates
3 - speed = 16s range = 12s
4 - If you want to upgrade m
I have a very limited budget- I already really stretched it with those batteries!
Thanks for your suggestionsore later on then get a pair from DrBass...If not just get an average one fromamp bike
they are good!
5 - you need to upload some pics for us...
6 - I dont know about you but I dont leave my bike in outdoor where rain could reach. plus I have 2 locks securing my bike. ALWAYS lock to object! (you need to spend money here if you dont want to loose your ebike)
