I have not been able to do a lot this month due to a workathon I am on, and still on till Sunday. Have had plenty of time to ‘data mine’ ES.
My original plan was to go for a MP3, but the more I read, the more I thought I would get bored with that setup, some more searching and finally decided on the X-Lyte HS3540 / 72v-45amp controller / X-Lyte APM,which all arrived this morning.
Not sure about ‘e-braking’….the Commencal has hydraulic brakes, if I get my engineering head on I could modify the existing lever assembly to accommodate the switches.
Going to base my build on Jimbo’s build - viewtopic.php?f=6&t=32754
And mount 8 – 5s1p 5000mah packs on the downtube, I sussed out what ducting was used, and I can get it local to me.
I am soooooo tempted to build the bike, then go for a stripdown and take the frame to a mates body shop for a re-paint in Satin Black, I think that would look neat and ‘Stealth’ it a bit…?
I'll start a proper build thread once I get going.
All the best.
