First version, 2003 Rocky Mountain Edge X-country bike[but with jumper fork],MXUS geared mini-motor, 48 Volt 8aAh " rack battery", "Stand Alone" Cycle Analyst, Cycle Lumenator.Tiny stock controller was hidden under the seat. Pretty much "plug and play". Only the frt motor fitment took some time. Top speed, no wind, no pedal is 24 mph. Jives well with my stubby legs and the Edge's stock 11/44 gearing.
Changed over to "Lipo in the bag". The Lyen senorless "Mini-Monster" 23 Amp controller first went in the frame bag, but got a little hot for my liking, so I drapped it over into the bag's mesh side pocket. A piece of intertube covers the connectors and the shiney controller is wrapped in a piece of speaker grill cloth.
I thought I would try Lyen's custom left-side half-twist throttle. Two thumbs up![thumbs are happy, no more pushing or pulling
] Note "hair tie"parking brake. Looking for thick O-ring to go between half throttle and grip to serve as crude cruise control[All the old timey auto parts stores are gone for my area
]. Several attemps to install a stand have proved fruitless, just no way to attach anything.
Standard automotive 30 Amp toggle for power. EV Falcon bags have "button-hole"[slit]openings at both ends for convience. EV Falcon bags are awesome!
I don't go fast or far, just tool around in the 10 to 20 mph range, so I don't need much of a pack. Just a simple 12S1p 5000 mAh. At bicycle speeds I get at least 3 miles per Ah. Since the frame bag is not stuffed with Lipo, I carry my lock, poncho, tool kit, etc in the frt. half. If I need a more range, I have another 12S1P pack that I carry in the otherwise empty tail bag. I lost 1 mph top speed going from 48V Li-Mn to 44.4V Lipo.
Going from a 17A controller to a 23A model makes throttle control and frt. tire traction an ever present concern. The throttle can be abrupt[I may limit current with the CA] and the 900 or so Watts is about the limit of what I think is relalistic for a frt. mount on a MTB with a skinny road tire. On any surface other than dry pavement, it really wants to spin.
So..,to address those traction issues,... I've started work on version 2.0 + 2.0
