Can't wait to see what you do next, this is quite the clean build. There is elegance in all of it.
thank you john. i find building an ebike more of a challenge than a software only project. it encompasses a lot of different engineering disciplines--mechanical, electrical, software, physics and some chemical. coming from an industrial engineering background, everything is about automation. forces you to see every piece in production terms--low-cost, hi-quality, reproducibility. the challenge is to minimize the materials and actions (processes) from stock to finished product. take for instance the lowly hex cap screw--i will try to use the same screw in many different places just so it can be sourced in higher quantity, use the same tooling, take up less organization space, minimize human error and require less brain cycles to use. i apologize for digressing into a lecture on operations research
