    If you are in a car and the speed limit is 55mph and you are going faster than that is that not breaking the law? If you use common sense and good equipment there is no reason you can't "get away"...

    While the Pedego is a ready to ride unit if someone had some skills this bike with a little work would be a whole lot cheaper. http://gearjunkie.com/walmart-fat-bike

    All things being relatively equal buy the one that you feel you will get the best post purchase service with.

    It would probably work but only marginally better for the cost involved. To get more power <8v is not going to offer much and a 8.8ah battery is not going to give you much for extra distance,...

    With an FX+ and your normal amount of effort you should be able to pull your 10-12 mph club around behind you. Use your pedaling energy to propel the bike and let the motor assist you as necessary....

    The Ohm is a BionX hub system and doesn't surprise me that it didn't make it up your hill as you described it several posts ago. While you will gain some power in your body the more you ride if the...

    Not necessarily as far as the range issue goes according to the way I ride. My 48v LifePo4 battery is 12ah and the BMS shuts it down at 9.36ah. Over hill and dale I can get close to 40 miles of range...

    i agree with everything that Allen says in theory but the reality is that in CA you are allowed to have a 1000w motor. As I said I have a Panasonic, and a Yamaha, mid drive and they do take good...

    The biggest advantage in brakes over the rim brakes both companies offer would be disc brakes like those offered by Ohm which that shop also sells apparently.

    The BMS cuts in at 9.36ah. I have timed the charge a few times and it takes 2 hrs, at least close enough to call it that unless you want me to say 122 minutes. YMMV.
