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.
