So finally...my real first "build". I bought a 9C DD hub before, but I figured I needed the freewheel and the startoff torque of a geared hub. I have an extensive background of mopeds, motorcycles, and even a motorized bicycle build
My motorcycle I never rode more than 10 miles, the mopeds constantly broke down and got pulled over, and the motorized bicycle just cracked the frame in 2 weeks.Im happy to say I believe ive found a new growing hobby that I will love, and stay behind the radar riding.
-1997 Marin Hill Hawk, vbrakes and RST front suspension fork
-Bafang BPM 2 code 8(high speed,any idea how to break these open?)
-BMS Battery KU123 500W 12Mosfets controller
-and at last, the battery in which I need to find out what im going to use.
I really just need a plug and play battery, such as a 48v 15ah lifepo4. The controller says max amps 30a, so I believe a 15ah lifepo4 pack should be fine? Im aiming for 32mph top speed, 35+ downhill.
Once I finish my house in 5 months I may go 15s lipo, but not for now as Im rather forget full. Any idea on a 48v lifepo4 vs 15s lipo as far as speed? Im thinking 15s may net only a little more top end?
