eBike Information

  1. Higher Voltage Battery = More Speed1
  2. Higher Ah (i.e. amp hours = capacity) Battery = More Range1
  3. The controller needs to be able to handle the higher voltage. Check your controller to find out what its max is.1
  4. 48V x 14 Ah = 672 Wh (watt hours)1
  5. On a bicycle, the cogset or cluster[1] is the set of multiple sprockets that attaches to the hub on the rear wheel. A cogset works with a rear derailleur to provide multiple gear ratios to the rider. Cogsets come in two varieties, freewheels or cassettes, of which cassettes are a newer development. Although cassettes and freewheels perform the same function and look almost the same when installed, they have important mechanical differences and are not interchangeable.2DOST uses freewheel (instead of cassette)?
    1. Specialized uses cassette.
  6. 10 things to know before purchasing an eBike in 2020
    1. How long is the warranty? (TODO: Check DOST)
    2. 750W motor will fly up any hill with throttle only and get to top speed very quickly.
      1. Wattage is not always equal. Depends on the motor.
  7. Look into Cloud 9 seats on Amazon, around $30.
