    Battery Placement

    I'm changing where to put my battery because after riding, a got a few flats in my back tires and going to change to the middle of the bike in the frame. Does anyone have any ideas? I was thinking of using lots of duct tape and just taping it to all sides of the frame. Would that work?

    I'm not sure how well and for how long duct tape will hold your batteries securely. I'd suggest you look through this thread on Endless Sphere and get some ideas on home-made battery housings. Good luck.
