Re: Advice for a kit for a specific route

Looks solid to me. Good battery, DD motor with variable PAS which is probably what you want. I personally dont prefer full throttles but you dont need it. I did a study on my YT study about most economical ebike setup and speeds. IMO, it is 48V 1000W motor at 20-22mph in the USA. A geared hub motor ...

Re: EV/LTO Battery Build - LTO, EV, or Combo?

yeah, i agree with KISS. but i want something truly cool. lto is so cool and also safer... but the used ev battery market is at $100 per kwH. I can get a whole lot of range over coolness of LTO. and, trying to match the nominal voltage of both packs would be a nightmare. so i probably gotta decide o...

EV/LTO Battery Build - LTO, EV, or Combo?

So, guys, as the season approaches while staring at 1 feet of snow and 10F outside, I am planning out my new build. My old bike will probably be sold to a friend at a deep discount. The new build will be a bit novel to me and maybe many others, but I would like to do an used EV/LTO or both build wit...

Re: Battery for Ebikling 1200w rear hub

Probably a good idea to refine your requirements a bit more beyond mid range. Tell us the use case for the ebike ie how far are you looking to go, how long, and terrain. As a general scoping, I use the following power thresholds. 350W = 15-16 MPH 500W = 18-20 MPH 750W = 25-27 MPH 1000W = 28-30MPH So...

Re: Donor bike decision: Electra, Sikk or Micargi?

IMO, i would go the Electra or Micargi over the Sikk due to the big frame design. With the big frame design, you can put a giant battery in there or have room for an eventual giant battery and just fill in empty space with cheap styrofoam. There is also room for a battery on top tube though many her...

Is the battery held on by bungee cords? You can buy a 1" board and paint it black or red to match your bike and then attach that to the top tube with hose clamps and then screw your shark battery into that 1" board to clean up that look and secure that battery a bit more. 1" board = $1.50 (like 4 fe...

Not to belabor this point as interesting as I think it is. But, maybe we go the aero road bike route. Check this out. I actually want to get into cycling too.

Re: Reputable/reliable 48v batt sellers for BBSHD build

yes double the amps so lower amp draw on each cell. the other thing you should consider is that you can always buy another pack (same cells and config) and parallel the two packs. imo, the cell quality with the LG H2 would be high enough that down the line paralleling two different capacity packs wi...

Yes, bigger is better even if your motor/controller is no where near the max continuous amp draw of the battery pack. that being said, there is also a cost aspect where that extra P or cell quality is too much. dood, just get the LG H2 cells that was rated at 20A each cell. That pack from EM3EV woul...

To me and get others opinion on this, if I had to chose between a battery pack with 100wH more and 25A max continuous discharge versus one with 44A max continuous discharge, I would definitely get the one with 44A max continuous discharge. That 100wH might seem like more range but the 44A max contin...

Re: Reputable/reliable 48v batt sellers for BBSHD build

Many different perspective here but the general rule I "like" to follow is 25-33% of capacity should be your normal power consumption. So, if I want to go 30mph or 1000W, I will need a 3-4 kWh battery of course that is ideal. Getting a battery that big is expensive but some can do it. The main point...

People vastly overestimate the effect of a vehicle's weight on efficiency. It's ALL about aerodynamics and motor efficiency. Bicycles have trash aerodynamics. Also Tesla Model 3s have some kind of super ultra high-efficiency Switched Reluctance Motors. SRMs are also used extensively in robots, prin...

TY for insightful replies. Looks like we need to get more aero and more efficient motors at high speeds and bigger batteries. Obviously, this is in the emoto and high power ebike realm and not the legal ebike.
