    Would have been nice to use big cells with screw terminals, yeah?

    You'll need a 12S charger or power supply to charge it. If you can't program your controller, you'll hit LVC at about 3.35V/cell (which...

    I have a battery very much like that, but high energy rather than high power. For nominally 44V/47Ah, I think the size and weight is a...

    You must be mistaken. Ask anybody-- disc brake is best brake, necessary for all bike!

    I thought of that initially when addressing the OP's question, but I think that approach loses its appeal if you want to go faster than...

    Because if your motor power is in abundance, then multiple motor gears don't help. They only add weight, expense, complexity, points of...

    It's probably cheaper and easier to get all the same advantages and more by simply adding power and battery capacity. Multiple speeds...

    Electra Townie is a awesome starting point, very comfy and relatively lightweight. I've converted a number of those. It's longer than...

    Cable discs can be good. Cheap discs, cable and hydraulic, are not good. Cheap linear pull brakes easily outperform most disc brakes...

    What are you trying to accomplish with disc brakes? You can get equal or better braking from rim brakes, with less chance of damaging...

    If you "need" disc brakes (you don't, but you need better brakes than a single coaster brake), then start with a bike that has them. If...

    Yes, but I haven't witnessed that failure mode yet. And I have given it a lot of opportunity. All my early e-bikes used solder only or...
