    In my opinion, it is hardly enough. I have a 900 watt mid drive (pictured) that I use a 30ah pack on and it is sufficient for range but, cutting down to 8ah, that would honestly take me about five...

    pancho,
    Circuits (like a controller) will have continuity. It will not be a direct short. What does your meter read when you go from the red to the black on the motor controller? Certainly not a...

    When you say flashes, what does that mean? A spark, welding what, there will likely be an initial surge from the battery pack to charge the caps. The real test is, are the wires getting hot or, is...

    Lead acid???? Huh. I'm not trying to be a naysayer but I am speaking from experience. Why in the world would lead acid be your only option??? Is it because of the price? Lithium batteries come in...

    Just out of curiousity, why do you want to avoid the bag??? The reason I ask is the bag allows you to mount them in the optimal place (which is low and in the middle of the bike). Beyond that your...

    No, but the circuitry for ebike is very simple. A battery feeding a controller that feeds a motor, controlled by a throttle. Draw yourself a schematic and start troubleshooting.

    Monsoon,
    Are you in a hurry to get this bike on the road? What kind of mech skills do you have? The reason I ask is, have you ever thought about a mid mount motor? It will allow you to downshift...

    Here's my latest creation. It is a Motobecane Gran Turismo with a 24V, 900 W motor (mid mounted so all gears can be used with the motor), 24V, 30ah LiFePO4 Pack mounted in a Falcon EV triangle bag....

    I'm not using it but, I hate the look. It looks low quality/cheap and I hate the small wheels. I just generally hate that style of bike but I guess that's a personal preference.

    The problem with your requirements for $1000 is, you will end up with a cheap bike that you hate. With SLA batts, they don't last long and are heavy. I hate them and don't recommend them but they...

    Yes and the 20mph fed limit on an ebike is absurd. Its not too hard to exceed 20 on a pedal bike.

    Here's a pic of my latest creation. It is a Motobecane Gran Turismo (essentially a Trek 520 copy) that I converted.

    The pedals only turn if you pedal them. If the motor is powering the bike, the sprockets move but the pedals do not. I have installed a front freewheel on the crank. I have come a long way since...

    The mere fact that they have to put a speed limiter to limit the bike to a measily 20 mph is absolutely insane. I cannot believe the feds regulate ebikes to this pitiful measure. I can exceed 20mph...
