    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...

    Honestly, I ride an electric bike nearly every day. All the time I hear these, what I consider, outrageous 30-50 mile range claims. Can someone expound on that. My questions are:

    1) What is the...

    It seems simple but it is a little more involved than that. There are a lot of variables that need to be considered. Things like how to mount the motor, geared hub, direct drive or mid drive (my...

    Turbo,
    Do you see the Juiced Rider as a pedal able option? I see it as a scooter that has pedals. The classic drawback to them is that they are very inefficient to pedal. So when the juice runs...

    Its possible to do anything with enough money and ingenuity. I have a 900 watt motor. You would need to increase that to consistently break the 30mph barrier on a flat.

    I did indeed move my...

    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...

    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...

    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.
