Now that Im about ready to ride, what should I be watching for? at 18s1p for the moment. when should I shut down? 80% of Ah? (4000 mAh on the CA) or should I be watching for voltage?
I really dont want to screw things up on my first ride to work.

I used to have a big ass fender for the front on my old hard tail....cant remember the make. but most bike fenders are geeky looking.
I'd really like to get another old schwinn cruiser and build one up into an e-bike. My Cooks (pics above) is too classic to modify. Me and my buddy last night were talking about how that bike has been through 9 countries and 35 states. Ill never change it.

I didn't realize till I rode through it how fresh that puddle of oil was. Soooo glad to have a front fender that day, goo all over the bike anyway, but at least my face stayed clean.
If you run a rear rack on your bike, rear fenders can be made from anything, and just attach to the frame and the bottom of the rack. I prefer a strip cut from closed cell foam fatigue mats, mostly since I found those on the roadside too.
