capacity, bought on Ebay. Much lighter
than using SLA batteries, which
improves the bike handling.
System Voltage48 Volts
ChargerTurnigy Accucell-6
Top Speed20 MPH (32 KPH)
Top speed in narrow off-road trails can
be scary.
AccelerationQuite reasonable
RangeDepends on hills and road surface, but
probably around 10 miles
Conversion Time1 day
Conversion CostCannibalized the setup I had on my
recumbent, so I don't recall exactly.
Additional FeaturesCan be considered an all wheel drive hybrid, with
electric motor on the front wheel and pedal power on the
back wheel.
Does well in off-road trails, as long you ride more than
3 mph to get the throttle to engage. However fenders are
not a good idea when riding over rocks and branches, the
front one keeps getting bent and rubs against the tire.
