I documented everything =)
I did something very sweet just today. . .
I moved the packs from hanging over the rear wheel
To right in the middle.
You are going to love this!
So start with one of these from Walfart:http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product. ... id=9207799
I used to run it like this:
The seat post is at an angle, so the bracket for that rack
is at that same angle.
Before I had my batteries hanging out as above. . . sucked. Weight was high and back and it vibrated.
Then I thought. . . "hmmm... What if I turn that rack
upside down and face it forward?"
* Remove the two screws that hold the plastic rack
to the metal post
* Turn post upside down
* Attach to frame BELOW seat, facing forward
* Reattach rack
Now the batteries are perfectly level, in the middle of the bike, forward and low.
The plastic rack
is not attached to the metal arm so I can remove the pack as a unit
swivels in and out but will not come out or move under load (tested for 50 miles)
Check these pictures out:
* Tire only lofts when I peddle and **try** to make it loft
* Bike rides MUCH better and feels better
* Handles bumps better
* Feels slower since it is more predictable and smooth
* Looks better
* Less vibration on the packs
I just did this today so of course I will modify the procedure.
Attached are just 24S1P Lipo 4150mah.
Next I will put my 24S2P Lipo 9000mah stack.
Will probably build a case around them with fan to protect from the sun, crashes, and people.
