That looked to me like an 8-fun
Good for about 18-19mph on 700c and 24v, yes fully 36v able and about 27mph
on 700c wheel.

My currie izip via rapido uses a 250w version of this.

Hey Steampunk,
Where you at on this build? It's a pretty cool build! You're gonna love sneaking up on other bikes or the reaction when people want you to stop to talk about the bike but by the time they see you its too late "LOOK"

Rather funny how many of those huggers are driving a Prius or other gas over electric.
Some with some sticker about carbon footprint.. To those I say "HA!"

I been collecting data for a Mini Maker Faire display.
Even with the hills here, running on pure electric, I get around 1/4c to 1/3c per mile
on the recharge energy (based on 10c/Kwh)

Gas here in PA is _AT LEAST_ a moped.
49cc and lower.. over that is motorcycle
either require plates, insurance etc.. and either class C or Motorcycle license.
