Also, sunnyday, what date did you order the kit and what dates did the separate pieces show up, specifically, so I (and the OP) can't guestimate when we can recieve ours?
It took about 10 days to recieve the ebike kit..and then the lifepo4 battery came about 18 days later...the battery takes a bit longer to recieve because of customs and shipping hazardous materials/batterys..
My charge controller went bad after only 10 miles of riding...you may not have that problem, but if you do, I would resomeend going to the ENDLESS SPHERE forum and buying the modded LYEN controller for $129.
My thumb throittle also broke immediately , so be careful when you tighten down that set screw....im now using the twist throttle.
You dont need to hook up the pedal assist sensor...you can just use manual throttle.
tell me what you voltage reads on your battery, once you fully charge it....I want to see if it comes down to 53.6 volts resting...after a full charge, like mine does.
If you are looking to buy a decent bicycle at a good price, I can recomeend GIANT brand...they are well made and you can get a hybrid with front shocks for under $400 new...I got mine used off craigslist for $200...they seem to be a solid bike for a low price.l
