i've recently ordered ecospeed kit from ecospeed, and batteries from better-bikes..
however better-bikes say they are taking a risk in sending the battery because they are considered hazmat. they added there's a loophole which allows you to send a battery with a kit or an e-bike.
my problem however is that i DON'T want this to be considered as a kit on our end OUR customs won't allow a kit stronger then 250 watt, so i requested them to split the shipment by sending in the engine first (no kit and gearbox) and then, if the engine passes after 6-8 weeks send in the rest of the kit when they finish it.
Trek 7.7 fx, 22.5" frame, 38x700c,10 gears.
ecospeed mid drive 1300 watt engine, max speed 45 kph.
battery1: 48v 14 ah, frame mounted battery, range 40km.
battery2(spare) 52v 10ah frame mounted bag, range, 30km.
