  1. Hey, I was curious about the bike, have you actually measured current usage? I know the controller is 30 amp max .. but the battery will sag to 3.5v under heavy load, thats 840 watts @ 30amp. But does the motor draw 30 amps max? under what scenario? have you put kind of current logging device onto it to see the profile of one trip?
    thanks.

  2. I use a turnigy wattmeter in line with the battery pack. For about $35 usd you can measure instantaneous current and voltage, peak volts,peak amp, peak watts but also total amphour and watthour. So the 1183 watt peak is real. There is very little sag in lipo packs at full power, a drop of maybe 1.5 volts down from 33.6 volts full. You can buy a pack of 5.5mm bullet connectors and solder them to the dc wattmeter so you can insert or remove as reqd.
