Is this a good price for it?
I need a kit that could mount disc brake in the rear, and should be 28 inch because this is a 29er bike.

He said it's not true. He said the wattage handling is specified by the motor, not the controller.
Am I right or is he right?

I actually measured the circumference with a small rope and ended up with 84" and updated the CA with the new number. I also went from 30PSI to 50PSI on both the front and back. I trued up the rear wheel last nite to get rid of the ghetto whobble that started a month ago.
