Re: Good Batteries?

Thanks for these many and informative replies! Some (drebikes) asked for more detail of my uses. I have an 1100 watt motor but it goes through a 14 speed derauler so it is not a hub motor with that draw BUT I do ride usually in steep hills but keep the cadence high at around 90 so the motor is spinn...

thenate, I heard that this year the race is up and back down the course--I don't know why this isn't on their site. Maybe it isn't true as this would be a completely different animal.

This is a very simple encouragement to compete and show some of the ES ebikes' amazing and relevant accomplishments. Where else are these accomplishments demonstrated or showcased? (oh oh, I asked a simple question!)

extreme, you should probably think a bit more before you knee jerk respond to posts. You haven't been following what people have been saying to you. One example--Craig said bring on all comers--that's the idea--to test all the ebikes in a single test. He said to you (and me) "When the green flag dro...

Can I limit this voltage to not go above 47.5 in a similar manner that you just did the 12V to 10 V with diodes? 2 -- PS; A que...
