Good to see another flux build ticking along nicely, good work. I kinda wish I went the same way you did for my battery, I went with multistar lipo. Apart from that our bikes are very similar. I have only had 2 rides on mine with power so far but I can tell already it's gonna be a keeper
good luck with the next stage of the build.
Hey Ian. Yeah, good to see your build coming along. You work quick
I've been using lipo's for past couple years and can't beat the value. It's just the safety issue thing that I made the switch. It's a more expensive route though. I'm hoping to have it running under power in a week or sooner. The electric part is where I lack experience so may run into issues.

If I may - If I had such frame I would invest more on a decent DH fork...
You had no idea how big is the difference between a good suspension fork to some of the low-end models.
I have a question please; Why 'vented' MXUS? the visible copper wires isn't a problem with contact with water...?
I totally agree. It just came down to cost. I plan on upgrading both front and rear along with several other cheap components on the bike.
Re: vented, I don't ride in the rain or when too wet out. My current bike has vented also and runs much better vented. I don't worry about puddles. The motor is hot enough to evaporate it. And ride on trail all the time and never had issue with any damage from rocks or dust. It's worth it.
