It's easier if you just get a kit that does what you want. The Cycle Analyst is a fantastic tool and enhancement to almost any e-bike, but just setting it up amounts to learning a new set of skills.

If you can install Debian Linux, or root your phone without somebody talking you through it, you'll probably enjoy setting up the Cycle Analyst. If that sounds painful to you, maybe find a kit that doesn't require setup on the programming side.
Alright! Thanks for the comparison. Arch linux user and Android rooter here, I'm fine with doing tech stuff as long as I know that in the end it's possible and I'm not setting out on a fool's errand.

If it's possible to add the Cycle Analyst to almost any e-bike and therefore do a PAS conversion I'm in. What about the integrated controller that is in LunaCycle's smart pie? Could this pose a problem to getting access to the controller for installing the CAV3?

+1 Mac kit with battery from EM3ev. Installed a kit on my mates bike, it's light, very efficient, torquey and on the 50.4v battery goes great.

Easy install and great vendor support/upgrades later if required - maybe cheaper to get some stuff elsewhere, but in the long run reliability and battery life will more than make up for it imo.
