Thanks for posting your build. Love the aluminum hollow box frame. One question is the controller supplied in the kit the 40 amp or 60 amp versions? What one did you get with your kit specifically?

Thanks

Hi, sorry, I've been "away" of the forum for some time, but I can give a fast update on this:

- Controller is the 40A Bluetooth version

The bike is now disassembled in order to be painted.

I need your help/suggestions on how to make some mods:

- I bought a gearsensor in order to cutoff power while changing gears, but I expected it would act as a brake switch, I only detect a slight change of resistance while the derailleur wire is moving trough it. Any tip on how to make it work?

- It would be awesome if I could add a torque sensor... but I have a quite long isis spindle. Suggestions?
