Can anyone give me an idea on the real battery space inside a beta please?
If you get creative, you can do what me and icherouveim did:

20S9P is pretty awesome and worth the effort IMO.

I’m tossing up getting a beta vs p7-r or f-37. This will be used as my commuter so I think the f would be impractical with the schlumpf two gears and draw attention with no rear cassette if the boys in blue take an interest. So that leaves p7-r with the geared rear plus the long range battery as the benchmark. A geared hub with 1500w would be plenty torquey for my needs.

The beta build could be done two ways:- new parts and sell my demo ii ebike I built, or swap and sell the demo as a human powered machine.

Swapping parts: The demo is hs3540 with statorade/hubsinkd, cav3 and phaserunner with em3ev 14s7p in pannier on a Thule tour rack. So it goes nice, has regen but is not a nice handling bike with so much weight in all the wrong places. The issue would be the battery won’t fit so I’d need to sort that out. The fork steerer would need sorting too and parts are worn etc.

New: I’d be interested in a neat build maybe using grins tdcm igh to avoid derailleur, phaserunner and cav3.

The cheapest is swapping of course but it’d still be a heavy rear. And I’d need to source a battery.

Decisions decisions...

Yes I see they do, just seeing if there was an option to mitigate the fees involved. Thanks
