Okay, so I'm pretty much an eBike noob. I've built two so far, both with SLA batteries, mostly my expertise is in gas bikes, but I need to widen my knowledge. I'm rebuilding the two motors I have into one bike, an Avalon full suspension 26" bike. I have a 48v front hub motor and a 24v rear hub motor. I have read and watched eBike school's info on building and wiring an AWD bike. I plan to use two different batteries (lithium, not SLA, I'm building my own) but I guess my question is, would I be okay to use one throttle for both even at different voltages? I guess if I only wire my power connections to the 48v, there shouldn't be any way for feedback through the throttle? Does anyone have any suggestions? Is this even something I should attempt? I could wire them totally separate, but I don't really want two different throttles on my bike.
