BMSBattery wheels always seem to have loose spokes, so you need to check them all

I know you need to open it to get access to the battery, but if you had something like a quick release seat-post, you could lift the seat to open it. Ideally you need to get the centre of gravity of that box in front of the axle. Try putting a couple of bricks or something else equivalent to the weight of the battery and try riding it. Then you'll know whethher the handling's OK

What I was thinking was that you could use a quick release bolt like this on the seat-post. Then, you would be able to flip the bolt and slide up the seat to open the box. the box could then br re-positioned right up against the seat-post, which I think would be a lot better.

The only other option that I can think of would be to get one of those triangular bags that fit in the frame triangle as long as your battery isn't too wide.

How is the low speed torque on this motor @ 36v? Could it handle 30% hills?
I'm running a clyte 408, but it has no grunt for off road riding, and is only useful for cruising on the level.
