Ok so I finished my commuter and here are the pics.
2009 Schwinn Coffee XL (good for riders about 5'9"-6'2")
Wilderness Energy BL-36 Kit (50 amp controller)
Ping LiFePo4 36v 15Ah Version 2.5 with BMS
Police Issue Trunk Bag with zip down panniers
Astro Super Whattmeter model 101
2 Torque arms
Weather proof bicycle cover for rain and sun protection at work
(4ga 100 amp max gold RC connectors on motor wires) so I can unhook the throttle and motor wires and carry the bag in places!
Deans connectors to replace the factory banana plugs on battery and controller.
28 amps max pulled by the motor (as seen on meter)
1100 watts max pulled by the motor (as seen on meter)
24mph max as seen on hand held gps
Please note that mounting the controller in the bag is ok. I have checked the temps after various full throttle rides and it is cool to the touch. Also note that I leave the top flap open while charging so the charger fan can circulate the air most efficiently.
So here are the pics of my stealth commuter.
Please let me know what you think of my build. I have worked very hard to ensure a clean install. I think it turned out pretty nice. Thanks for all your help bikeforums.net!
