Looking forward to seeing some videos of your bike in action. Have you opened up your motor at all to see how crispy the windings are? I've been running my bike at about the same power as you, and my motor still has some nice looking windings! Maybe you should check it out and see if your running your motor into the ground or not, like I did .

I was afraid to use 2 x 7S in serie. lol
Did you think in do holes in the motor to decrease the temperature?

Also you tend to ride over the pelican crossings when people are on them, and only just after they are out of your way. Cars can do this and I don't know if you shouldn't be more careful. The last thing we need to do is alienate the general public by driving to close to them on something which has the power of a 50cc scooter.
Really like your build threads btw but don't want to see you getting arrested.

SURE 100% blew, so My guess from the same manufacturer Look like alloy could be in very high possible danger to getting it blew very soon or in no time. My vpower charger 48v is still good since 2years ago I have been using it. There is a product Name BC168 in ebay, had been used by many es members I think they are not bad. however I have already order One charger from Hobby king to charge 5cells 10amps, maybe I will parallel them to 20amps. my Imax Bc is not bad, still working from the first day I used. about the Bc 168 charger is capable to charge them individually and balance all, or say 90v all in One go.

I think the ebike community has created a market for a new type of helmet, something in between a standard bicycle helmet and a motorbike helmet, well that's what I would want going at those speeds.
I made a video of going through Melbourne CBD at much slower speeds, might upload it somewhere, it's recorded in hi-res by iphone4.
