So here goes, after meeting jozzer around 10 months a go I was very impressed with his ev creations. Having a back ground of motorbikes for some 17 years I was inspired to build something electric for my self. I decided that the most cost effective option would be a ebike with a hub motor set up.
So I set about ordering up a hs3540 hub motor, 72v 40amp controller, cycle analyst, trottle etc.
I got 4 turnigy 5s 5ah packs from http://www.jozztek.com
to give me a 20s 5ah to get started with. I will upgrade to 20s2p 10ah later on then once I am happy with bike I will mod the controller and go 24s2p to give me 88.8v but one step at a time.
So when I got all the bits together I made a quick set up using a old mountain bike I had collecting dust. But on riding it i soon found the bike to be too unstable at anything over 30mph so start hunting down a suitable dh frame after hours of searching I came a cross a giant dh team frame having seen many of you on here using such frames I though it would be a good choice.
I will upload some pictures soon of all the bits and the frame.
I will be making some custom drop out torque arms although did think about buying some of kiwi's drop outs but decided it be more fun and rewarding to make up my own sure I live to regret that one lol.
I'll keep you all posted thanks mark.
