10k miles on the 1000w motor.
I have commuted 43 (approximately 2150 miles) of 44 days to work this school year. The one day I drove, I spent almost 2 hours on the freeway/parking lot on the way in to work, and was late for meeting.
First, I ride kinda rough and broke a spoke. Since I had an extra 500w hub (bike still in production), I just cannibalized a spoke from that bike. I will need to order a few back-up spokes for the future.
I also have over 4000 mile on the cyclops tire and will need to order a few more from amazon. I have been riding by serveral construction site and gotten lots on metal pieces in the tire. One time it went flat from a large metal sliver, but I pumped the tire back up, and it has lasted more than 1000 miles. I have about 6 oz of slime inside the tube. Also, the hub does seem to be much hotter after a ride. Maybe its because the new throttle and my long stretches of 35+mph or age/use. Here is my bike at work:
More on cheap power supplies
My 10amp, 600w power supply is still doing great. I purchased a Turnigy watt meter and adjusted this supply to 10.9 amps. It stays cool with the over sized fan. Once it hits 62 volts, it drops down to about 15-20 watts, so, you need to keep an eye on it but it is not too critical if HVC is set lower. Just don't fall asleep at night if you do not have a timer or a 20w light bulb on it.
In June I ordered 2 of these 400w power supplies as back-up:

I use one a few times at home and it seemed to work OK, so, I brought it to school as a back-up. I measured it at 8.6amps at 62v. It did get hot.
One day I needed to bring a power supply with me to work because I was going to a special training at a different site, so I got out the other power supply for the same aliexpress vender, and set it up to bring with me the next day. When I plugged it into the battery it charged for about 5 seconds before there was a loud pop and it went dead. This is what it looked like when I opened it up.
I do not recommend these supplies for charging.
I will recommend this ebay dc to dc step-up supply.
It only does 1.5 amps at 62v with my 12v supply but I have more than 50 charges on my Dr. Bass and ping batteries. Since it is so slow, I use a timer to turn it off.
Still working on my 18650 pack but have been very busy. Will report next time.
