on the xtreme x-600,
it has a plastic deck with a hinge in the front and velcro holding it down.
I think that's a solution. Enough velcro and removing the screws is great. In my scooters I often just took out the bolts and they still had a hinge. When I rode was the only time the cover might fall off, and that's when my feet were on the deck and so it wouldn't. That said, this is a tiny bit of a crash hazard.
New to endless-sphere? Notice a lot of signatures recommending Ebike.ca? That's because it's the best place for a quality and manageable, (but still 'real'), first build. Justin is a solid supporter of electric bike development, and a good source of equipment.
My hat off a thousand times to the green people that effectively run this forum. The ES Mods are superb.
