These batteries are secured with two CNC machined plates, the brown leather ensures you do not scratch your leg on the mounting bolts. Most charging comes from a mains charger which is plugged into the back of the solar panel. The solar panel will give you approximately 15min of running for 1 day of sunlight.

This bike has been a fun project, now I am ready to move onto the next project. Built in June 2012, originally the range was 28km, this has now decreased to 20km. The batteries have had approximately 90 cycles, and should be fine up to 250 cycles.

This bike requires registration if it is to be used on the road.

You can pick the bike up from Palmerston North or I can deliver the bike to you at a cost of $0.60 per km. i.e. Wellington is 140 km from Palmerston North so would cost $84 to deliver. You are also welcome to arrange another means of transport.
