Yes people. All I usually hear also when Wes talks about battery stuff is blah blah blah battery blah blah charge. He definitely is the Sheldon Cooper of batteries and anything that has to do with hydrogen powered transistor lithium magnetic light producing sound waves affiliated with power producing charges and electromagnetic waves.

Finished battery up. Wired up the balancing leads for bms. Soldered on the discharging and charging cables with xt90 and xt60 connectors, wrapped in kaplon tape , used a foam cushion and heat shrink tube.
Fits perfect in the battery bag. Not real pretty but thatís what the bag is for

Iíll also make a lithium 12v pack and run a 12v cube spot led light on it for headlight.

Plus bike is the mid fat ( the first one). That one has some upgraded parts on it like the twist throttle , color display, and lekkie 28t chainring. Bike was $450 and I got about $1800 or so in parts. I would sell it for $1700 with battery and $1200 without battery.

not sure on weight. its lithium so way lighter than lead acid

I've been tossing around the idea of converting my 42v golf cart to lithium... but now that I've seen this thread I'm probably going to sell the golf cart, pull the ol' Trek bikes off the rack and throw a mid-drive kit on it!

Here goes nothin' ..or rather here goes most of my time, money and focus for the next few months

Man I want to do this so bad but the extent of my knowledge of lithium batteries, voltage, amps and electricity in general is near grade school level. I'm scared when I get finished you would just see a large fireball going down the road at 25mph.

Those are some awesome bike builds.
So I just got this bike for my Birthday, a 29" which is almost a cross between a beach cruiser and a mountain bike. It's just begging to become an ebike conversion.
I'm thinking a hub motor instead of a mid drive.
I've seen some kits that are very affordable, but batteries seem to be the expensive part. Any tips on more affordable battery. I'm thinking 48 volt, 1000 watt hub motor.

Can build one but any quality cell cost quite a bit. Depending on capacity and cell you are looking at $400+ on the low end.

The best way to explore nature is by riding a bike, that is a good looking DIY project.
