It's been awhile. Time for an update.

Finished my younger sons bike for the most part. Still tweaking a bit. This version of the bike is much lighter at 70lbs with 7.5ah 52v battery. It has smaller fork components more appropriate for a beginner kid. Cable brakes for now, 10" wheels, and same power plant as the other bike. I had to turn nearly every setting down on the kelly to tame this little bike enough for my 6yo son. He has been riding it a lot this week providing feedback on the settings for me. :lol: I have been running it off a 15ah 52v battery and a EGO 7.5ah battery for my lawn mower. Both are working well. A friend from work 3d printed a adapter for the EGO battery that I am building. Still need to finish making the contacts from some nickel strips or something similar to actually test the printed adapter. Also have to make a mount bracket to help contain and support the EGO battery permanently.

So far, the bikes are working good. There is tons of room for both of them to grow on these bikes. Going to build a high powered one next using a 60mm wide motor and 72v. Should be a rowdy little bike.
