Ha! The weight will be in the triangle so I don't think it will adversely effect me too much, but it's a little disappointing overall and makes me think I should have saved myself some grief and just gone with a 6 pack of 6s 5ah Zippy LiPos in a frame bag from Hobbycity.com.
Anyway.. now my next challenge is to get my SteveoÃ¢â€žÂ¢ brand controller working. I managed to get the 3 wire throttle figured out and got all the halls hard wired and then realized it was all running backward so now I've got to search through the forums to see how to reverse the halls to make the motor spin in the forward direction. Close, but no cigar! I have to say that dealing with halls for the first time makes me really appreciate pedal first controllers. Halls are a complete pain in the ass. Period. Anyway... progress... slow and steady. Hoping to do my first commute within a week or two. I'm going to burn this new ebike in on Going to the Sun road in Glacier National Park to see what kind of range and power I can get climbing up to Logan Pass. I'll post pics of that for sure in a couple weeks. Don't know if there has ever been an ebike on Going to the Sun road, but wouldn't be surprised if someone, somewhere had done it before.
