This is a typo correct?
With 2x the power but spinning twice as fast it is more efficent??

Re: Where to start

Welcome to the forum.
Not sure your question exactly. Is your problem your top speed or the noise? What is the motor you are now running? I take it it is now in a 26inch rim? Pretty sure if you had the wrong hall phase you would know about it straight away. What is your no load amps?

Re: What do I want, Stealth, HPC or something else?

The stealth and the greyp come with 250w legal modes. so you just flick the switch if you get pulled over. But most people never get pulled over. 65km/h is plenty fast enough for what these bikes are designed for. Being in europe i think the Greyp will be cheaper for you too get. The stealth will be...

The adaptto controllers already have a sleep mode. Thats why there is no off switch. It goes into the mode after a few mins of inactivity. They are meant to consume as much power as a wristwatch in the standy by mode.
