The 1000w motor is very similar to the 600w torque until you up the voltages. This is from what I've read on earlier posts and what I was starting to suspect. I'm not familiar with blackout bikes. Is there a link to the bike on the web?
I'm going to start at 72v, and I want to test a few controllers I have laying about with it, first a 72v20a analog xlyte, then a 72v50a "knuckles" infineon, then a 72v100a Kelly. Depending on whether the Kelly can handle the RPM, I might buy the 120v Kelly for some sick speed testing, and I might migrate it to a full suspension frame at that point.
By 'blackout' I just mean all black.
. I have a black Tidalforce IO Cruiser frame (HT), and I just picked up an old Rock Shox Boxxer in black, and a 20mm through-axle hub that I'm going to mount on black DX32 rim with black spokes, just like the V3. The only thing not gloss black will be the rim brake surfaces, the fork stanchion tubes, and the 203mm disk rotors (unless I find them in black too)
