Hi. I'm very new to electric bikes. I want to get one that goes about 30 mph max speed. I know that if I buy a bike that is slow or isn't up to my standards that I'll be dissatisfied so I'm aiming for the best that I can get for the best price.
I'm thinking about the Crystatlyte Phoenix Racer or the BMC thunderbolt. The guys who make BMC claim that they are faster but it's also a little more expensive.
I also saw this one. It looks like it might be a crystalyte hub motor but I'm not sure.
It only goes 25 mph but for the price and everything included, it looks to be a pretty good buy.
What do you guys think? Even if I bought a race or thunderbolt, what kind of controller and what kind of battery would I need to reach top speed of 30 mph ? Thanks. Someone said that I'd need a 54 v controller. HOw does that work? Thanks.
