Reason: fixed link
Your link is broken.
24v with (most likely) SLA batteries- 14-15mph maybe?
You have 288 wH of energy. SLA might really get 2/3 of that. Figure 20ish wH per mile no pedaling at max speed.
thanks, just wanted to get an idea
If you like the bike, might try some lithium batteries later or upgrading. That's a good starter bike. The more expensive hub motors probably have more durable rims and spokes. I don't own any of the e-bay hub motors so I have nothing to compare the one I have so I don't really know but I'm just guessing. I have a crystalyte 5303 and a forsen hub motor.
I would guess about 14 mph on flat ground with a full battery and about 9-10 miles of run time. (weight also a factor so plus or minus a little here or there)
Thanks for the replies. I think it will be good enough for now, just wanted something to cruise around the neighborhood. My main hobby is rc cars.
