Hi all - finally ready (I think) to start putting my first build together. Want to see if the community thinks it will work, or offer any wisdom.
Speed is not critical to me - I live in a city so it’s pretty start and stop. However, I will be riding in bike lanes so I would like to be able to max out around 20 mph if possible - again not critical. My bigger concern is a reliable battery. I plan to take this on the subway so I need something that looks pretty stealth since technically there’s a ban on electric “vehicles.”
From everything I have read, a single Carvon hub motor seems like it should do the trick. I weigh about 190 lbs and the terrain is largely flat, save for a bridge with a very moderate incline.
Basically I just want check that this thing isn’t going to overheat and combust, and that it will be able to get me form A to B. I anticipate my longest there-and-back ride being 6 miles max, so hoping this setup can handle that.
Any advice or thoughts would be much appreciated!
