Re: Which Motor Next

I live in Kent in the UK. That hill is part of my 20 mile round commute to work :)

18-20mph up a hill
30mph on the flat
40mph in short bursts

...would be ideal :)

Re: Which Motor Next

24s 150a
Crystalyte 5404

The above combo sounds ideal :)

Is there a controller you would recommend? I looked at the Lyen controllers again, but there arent any that meet every part of the criteria.
