Good vendor - TSDZ2 500W kit?

I'm thinking to convert my 7d Electra Townie with a TSDZ2 mid motor. I like the concept of the torque vs cadence control, and believe that 500W should be plenty as my home turf is in FLA, and 16mph is plenty of speed. I really don't need a throttle control, and would like to be able to ride this in parks. Can anyone recommend a good kit and vendor? Any other advice?

Iíve had good luck ordering from Greenergia. Havenít purchased their TSDZ2, but ordered a BBSHD from them and it arrived promptly along with all the correct parts Iíd asked for.

You should also get an ebike chain to go with that kit. AFAIK the 9-speed KMC are all sold out right now.

IF you've followed the long discussion on open source firmware to run the TSDZ2, you can buy a motor with this firmware from EC0-cycles.It has menu programmable options for many features. I've considered buying the controller/display only.

Also a US seller of the stock motor.

I read somewhere ( endless sphere?) that Tongsheng is about to introduce a new model. I don't know if that is something that will affect your decision.
