haha Just not a Vindaloo or the whole lot will go up in smoke!
Now that you mention it... A long wind geared hubbie on a bit lower voltage might be a good accomplice to keep the speed up when i hit 12-16% hills. That would of course just make things more complicated.
I'm sort of dithering whether i should continue this build, as the budget is adding up and the pocketbook does not agree:
18FET Lyen Controller - $250 shipped
20AH 10S lipo unit - $344 x 2 = $688 shipped, for a total of the 30S 20AH needed to get up pike's peak.
Cycle Analyst - $120 shipped
20" Magic pie - ~$240 shipped
Addl. Charging equipment = $~200
Total: $1498 + some unknown $..
So, $1500 to get a bike that will ruin optibike up pike's peak.. that probably won't use outside of this city as it's far from stealth
I must say that i'm relenting a little. Maybe someone here will get their wish about buying a very, very lightly used pie
