Here's my e-bike. It is a Sun EZ Sport Recumbent with a Crystalyte 405 front hub motor, 48 Volt sealed lead-acid battery pack and a pedal first 30 amp controller. I've had it for a couple of years and it is by far my favorite toy. The max speed on flat ground with hard pedalling and full throttle is 34.9 MPH. Cruising at 15 MPH with moderate pedal assist I can easily get more that two hours duration. One of my biggest joys is riding around until some hotshot in spandex on a racing bike decides he wants to show the senior citizen on the goofy looking recumbent a few things about power and speed. I enjoy ringing my little handle bar bell and announcing myself "passing on your left" as I disappear into the distance leaving them to wonder what just happened.:)

My wife is anxiously waiting for me to grow up, but it's not going to happen while I have air in my tires and a charge in my battery pack.

Looks like you can carry alot!

Did it take alot to get used to the longer frame??

Thank you,
It didn't take as much getting used to as my wife's Day 6 did/does.
We have had the Day 6 since about the second week of March, I still am not used to it.
The steering on the Day 6 feels a little weird. I am not sure that I am ever going to get used to it

So nice Bike !

Rayben Motors 500W/48V/SLA kit ($350 all-in)
Trek 4900 mtn bike with slick tire on the back
tops out at 50km/hr on the flat. Range at 38km/hr is about 30 km

I call it my elecTrek. What a blast!

edit - well almost 3 yrs later, it is still going strong with only occasional use. but those above range estimates are a bit liberal
I've since put on a 20AH LiFePO4 and get much more consistent performance. But still gotta be careful pushing it past 20km

Li-Ion Batt Pack
I've looked at Lithium-ion Battery's and really can't afford them..
I've been able to find a Batt Pack for 300-400 dollars(USD)..but realibility has been in question..
I stayed with the maintanance FREE..SLA..Glass Mat-technology..
Right now I'm useing Interstate batteries that are really meant for a Computer back-UP system..UPS/
2 x 12volt..
18-amp each..and looking far think that 20-amps is really TOPS..for my 24volt System..
There is a Electric Bike that uses 34-amp batteries..
That would be the e-GO../
The 18-amp batteries work very nicely..
But the Panasonic 15-amp battereis that were delivered with the Schwnn S-750 even out perform
the Interstate next batteries will be 20-amp..I'll try a differant series battery--but the battery POSTS are very important..
Funny how the Panasonic Batteries had SPADE-Connectors..
The Interstate Batteries have your standard Lead--Post/like a motorcycle battery..
Maybe the size of POST-sunk into the battery maintains some point about the Regulated--Valve--
Well..its gonna' be years for sure..
I'm useing my scooter for community travel(photo projects)..
I missed the Fireworks becasue I thought RAIN or Thunder/Lightning..
Stayed home--//
Have a great summer..waiting for the summer sun here in Connecticut..I need to drop some pounds..
Just staying inside..Mark M

My first ebike, Currie Mongoose Retro Cruiser, cheap, but modified later to to 25mph on the flats.
It is history now, it no longer exists. Onward, upward, submarine, boating: that's my present ebike project.

December, 2006; I don't miss this got-my-feet-wet bike, not much. But, handsome, masculine? You be the judge?

I got a kick out of your thread @ 'the other place' - you've certainly managed to bring your own thing to your projects, which is very cool. :thumb:

I have to ask re: the ThudBuster - does the saddle level out with the riders weight on it, or do you just prefer the inclined position?
