Default Re: Hello from the deep south

A 36V 500w electric kit will not be impressive if you do not peddle along. if you do pedal along, you can achieve good speed and range.
I am speaking of a 10 mile range with lead acid batteries. If you need a 20 mile range, you will need the more expensive LiPo batteries.
We have a few ebike sub-forums on this site. If they are unable to answer your questions, there are some forum sites dedicated to ebikes (they will tell you a lot more than you want to know).
Ebay is the cheapest. People have been happy with kits from these sites, though they cost a bit more:
