eBike conversions
I recently converted my bike to electric for very little money!

Anyone else done this?

I simply use my 700e packs to power it on 12s! Does 27 mph (43 kph) on the flat!

Can you post pictures?
That's pretty cool. I've been thinking of building an electric scooter. I'd like to use lipos and an 80cc replacement motor.... We'll see. It would be a cool project.

As the other fella said How about some pics? What motor did you use? what type of drive system? I have an E-Flight 160 motor just looking for a project like that. Looking forward to the pictures!

I will post some pictures soon. I used a cheap motor from HK its a 6354 200kv 14 pole outrunner rated at 90A 2450w 6-8s. Im now running it on 12s and it works fine. Im using it with a Hobbywing 70HV esc and just using a cheap servo tester as the throttle!

Its a bit cobbled together but thats the beauty of it, it can be removed in 5 minutes and put back on in 5 minutes and as I already have a load of 6s 5000 packs it didn't cost much at all. I also have a watt meter installed inline between the batteries and esc to keep an eye on amps and pack voltage.

So the next question is, what kind of bike and how far can you go?

Its a GT mountain bike with road tyres on.

I haven't done much distance testing and of course its dependant on how much throttle you use and how much you assist by pedaling, from what ive seen so far its looking like 8-10 miles on 2 6s 5000 packs which is all ive fitted so far. Ive seen some setups using 10 6s 5000 packs which would give upto a 50 mile range.

Yeah thats cool! They are kind of illegal though, even mine is! There is a 15.6 MPH limit on electric bikes in europe I think and I believe its 20 MPH in the U.S.?

Also anything above 250W is illegal in europe although there are many differnet ways this can be measured so as long as you don't have a sticker on it that says 500W Turbo Speedster your fine.

I did a distance test with just 2 6s 5000 packs (12s1p 5000mah) and got 6.6 miles with some gentle assistance and averaging 18.4 MPH! If I had kept it down to a reasonable average speed like 15 MPH which is what I averaged before the conversion I could easily get 7 miles.

I read somewhere that when planning battery power for an ebike conversion you should use 1Ah per mile, mine is doing half that!

Next test will be 12s2p 10000mah and keep the average speed down to around 15 MPH.
