Controllers

Controller Question: I assume in modern e bikes with a LCD display or PAS switch, that is the brains, or controller for the system. Can these be swapped? For instance, will a LCD display work on a system that came with a simple PAS switch? Can the number of PAS settings be changed by swapping controllers? Can throttles be added this way? How about motor cut off with proper brake actuators?

I find bikes I like, but they are missing a function or two that I want. So can they be upgraded?

Ideally, I would like an e bike with 300 watt or larger motor, at least 5 PAS levels and a thumb throttle. Also disc brakes with motor shutoff and a controller / LCD which displays odometer, speed, battery level, and PAS level. Either rear or mid drive. Multiple speeds. Either 20" foldable or 26" cruiser. I would like to stay in the entry level, under $1,000 price point.

Models I have looked at include Nakto Cruise and Nakto Camel and a Green Bike USA GB3P

I think there's a ton of bikes that will satisfy your requirements, but I know you'd like to see an example so go to ebikeling --- $899 delivered (AFAIK) for what you want with fat tires no less. My only experience with them is a front hub kit that was purchased about six months ago, and worked perfectly. Also, a real person answers the phone.

Thanks, two. None of their bikes list brake shutoff in the description. Many bikes fit all bit one or two parameters. Nakto Camel is fine, but only 3 PAS and caliper brakes. Nakto Cruise looks good, but description does not include throttle, yet the pics seem to show one.

That is why I asked if some of these missing items could be added.
