Gas is getting a bit much and decided to make my old mountain bike to an Ebike. After 3 weeks of searching for the cheapest options, I found a setup for $240 shipped on Ebay. I purchased a 500W 48V system and wasn't expecting much for the money. Setup doesn't come with batteries, as I was going to use either Lipo or A123. For fun I went from 15 to 20s and GPS'ed a speed of 25mph. Now I just have to buy some more pack and use the bike to commute to work.

The 20S is just fine for now. I don't have the mula to run 72V.

I peaked the sumbitch at 1937W. And with me pedalling at the same time, the Flux capacitor kicked in.

I maxed out at 28mph with me pedaling like a madman. Without pedaling I got 26mph at one point. So it's not worth pedaling at all when going full throttle. I use the hardcase Acepow lipo's this time. 14S done with three 4s packs and one 2s pack. Not sure if I want to try 16S and risk frying the controller.

UUUHHHHH yeah 16S FTW!!!!
if you burn up the controller oh well it must have not been strong enough.



I went ahead and purchased a bike. So Romano what do you think?



Here is the real thread I got the pic from

That is a nice build up. If the Force was strong with me, I would be able to build something like that.

I gained some speed today. All I did was switch over to a rear Serfas Drifter City tire. I peaked at 27mph and used 3000mah to get to work. So time wise it is the same getting to work. Only this time I don't use any gas whatsoever. Paid 75 bucks yesterday for gas and my SUV still wasn't full.

But on a good note, I only used 3000mah to get to work from my house.

Thats awesome 15 min to work and you can act like you are the fitness guru to all your co-workers even though we know the truth.

It's because you are the fitness GURU and with all that bike riding you have lost some weight.

OH thats right you only pedal to look stealth not to move the bike it must have been the wind at you back.

I think you are right about the wind. Lunch time I went 27mph again. I'll check again after work.

Try shaving your head and arms and see if that helps on the aerodynamics
