By 'bike' do you mean some kind of motorcycle or a bicycle? The one you linked is a high power battery useful for racing. Are you looking for high speed? If not there are other batteries more suitable for lower power rates.

I'm assuming you have the transmission (chains, sprockets, gears, belts W.E) figured out. If you know your motor voltage just get enough volts. Is that battery 6 or 12 volts? I'm sure you can do the division. Lifepos are really about as good as it gets.
