I trust that was supposed to be "one point nine" rather than "nineteen". :)

Nice to know the goal my goal should be obtainable. I read through the tread listed in your signature. A lot of good information there.

One thing that I have noticed is that everyone seems to so enamoured by high power and/or extended range that there are very few options for purchasing a small capacity battery. LEED does have a 24Volt 6.5AHr Panasonic battery but a small capacity 36V option seems to be DIY.

I plan on doing my own wheel builds because I want multiple gauge spokes so one item of particular interest was the source for spokes. Not for the weight savings but for the increased elasticity. I wanted matching rims on my existing bike so I ordered a spare rim from GM. The spoke holes meander around so much that it appeared to have been drilled by drunken sailor. I have built my truing stand (that can double as a test stand) and have a couple of old ARAYA 27 rims to practice on (first).
