    It sounds like you could use two separate bikes. One bike to get to and from work that isn't an e-bike. The other, kept and recharged at work which is electric so you can use to go places once at...

    The trick is to balance mileage, speed, and weight (batteries). At 25 amps you must take awhile to get up to speed; however, I agree about keeping the amps to the total amp-hours or less of the...

    448776 448777
    Long distance testing with the 48v 45Ah setup. As you can see I still have one square and a whole row left after 40.9 miles.
    I average 27 mph with a high of 33 mph.

    I brought the e-bike idea to the business start-up at my local college and the organizers saw it as third-world transportation. To the majority of people, the only way to get around is by car. In...

    That's true about being able to charge the battery. If you're not careful the assist you were expecting from the battery + motor could turn out to be additional dead weight. I would map out all the...

    That should be Marathon Supreme and not Plus.
    Normally, the rear spokes are 1-2 mm shorter on one side but if you need to move the rim more over to one side to fit the larger width tire in the forks...

    You'll need to use different length spokes on one side. The spoke calculator will let you know.

    The Marathon Plus behaves like a balloon tire at full pressure. The only thing different is that...

    Consider it a challenge instead. You'll be testing out the possibility that the Big Ben tire could fit...just with some modifications. Then let the rest of the 20 inch wheel e-bikes know. ;)

    It's going to be close...very close. I just measured my 2.35 inch Big Apple tire and at full inflation it's actually 2.4+ inches from sidewall to sidewall. If you try to get the tires to fit you...

    If you use the folding aspect of the bike then there's nothing you can do; you'll have to stick with the 20 inch wheels. For example, take a look at Schwalbe's sizes for the Big Ben tire. You only...

    You'll need to do some research then. I would also notice how much room I had with the Kenda Kwest tires to judge if I could fit a 2+ inch tire. If the rims have an aftermarket name on them I'd...

    A hub motor would work for you. I'd go with a 48v 1000w rear hub motor like the one I have with a 48v 15Ah Ping battery. If you take a look at the last five pages of the link you'll find everything...

    I've hit 36 mph without any problems. The key to any of the Schwalbe tires with their patented liners is to keep the tire vertical on the payment. If you like taking corners like a racing...

    The Schwalbe Big Apple tire is the best tire for e-bikes. I've spent over $500 trying various tires for my 30+ mph e-bike. None have come close to the performance of the Big Apple tire. I am also...
