Hello. I'm new to the forum and to EV bikes.
A few weeks ago I put together a Schwinn with a Rear Drive Crystalyte 4012/408 double tap on a 700c running 48v. Its an Amazing motor!
But I have a couple problems with the setup. First it the battery mount. Its heavy duty aluminum, but after 200 miles, its toast. the sides collaps under the weight of the battery if I travel down rough roads, or sidewalks, and even short trips across soccer fields or unpaved footpaths will cause it to drop down onto the back wheel. Has anyone experianced this, or found a solution?
I'm also searching for a solution for the selector switch between the motor modes. In order to avoid law enforcement entanglements (its legal, but being pulled over is a nusance) I have the conroller and wires esentualy hidden on the carrier with the battery. That means reaching behind me, a few inches from the tire, and feeling for the switch. Anyone have an idea for a remot way to activate this switch?
