Check out the Crystalyte 5302 Phoenix kit and how Alfonso had built his electric bike:
My new ebike turns heads when it passes seasoned road bikers.:D Those who took it for a spin love it and want one. The bike is super quiet and a joy to ride. Friends tell me they have trouble telling the difference between a regular bike and this one, until they pay close attention to the rear hub motor and the controller that’s tucked away under the seat. At a glance, it looks just like an ordinary bike.
Here’s how I put it together:
I bought a brand new dual suspension mountain bike for $100 at Walmart, and modified it using the following components, which you can purchase on Amazon or your nearest bike store:
A Crystalyte 5302 Phoenix kit containing the following:
26 inch 408 Rear Wheel. with Shimano 7 Spd Freewheel
48V 12Ah LiFePO4 with BMS (40A max continuous discharge rate), comes with charger
Direct Plug-in Cycle Analyst
36V 20A Start Immediate Brushless Controller, can be used up to 48V
Crystalyte Half Twist Throttle
I’ve added the following:
Mudguard: I added a mudguard to the front wheel so that I don’t have to eat dirt on rainy days.
Bell: I added a bell. I was told by a local bike store (I live in Toronto) that I could get fined $110 if cops find me riding without a bell, much like a car on the road without a horn. I don’t blame them at all for doing this. The bike is super quiet and I find the bell a necessity for alerting pedestrians who are j-walking and when passing parked vans/cars.
Here’s my new pride and joy eBike pic:
Crystalyte 5302 Installation tips:
Controller: I clamped the controller to the bike using two pipe clamps which I bought from Home Depot. I placed the controller right below the seat and clamped it to the support beam of a back mounted rack (20lb capacity). I sawed the inside lip of the rack to allow the rack to fit more snugly against the controller and I extended the support beam using a 2cmx3cm piece of wood (not shown in pictures, but I can provide this picture if you like).
By having the controller clamped to the bike, I’m able to safely lock my bike at work and take the battery with me to the office. Right now i use two sets of bungee cords to secure the battery to the rack. Two cords hold the battery to the rack. Two more cords are wrapped longside around the battery and seat pole, to keep it snug against the seat. For now it’s a viable solution and works well.
Currently the controller is sealed in double plastic film (same as used to weather proff your widows). What I really want to do is buy formal coating and spray the inside of the controller.
The cycle analyst is a very smart tool. It provides you not only with realtime information such as your current voltage, speed and distance, total AH used, but also let’s you set the cut off votlage (for a 48v battery, set it to 40 to 42 volts) , the maximum Amp (this limits the maximum current drawn from your battery) I set mine to 25 Amps. You can also set your cruising speed when at full throttle.
Tires: I got some slick low friction directional road tires that can be pumped up to 70 PSI, making for a very efficient ride. These tires are flat resistant (invest the money, it’s worth it) which i bought for $50 a piece from a local bike shop, here in Toronto. These tires must be installed in a certain direction, you need to read the arrow on the tire when putting them on. Because they can be pumped to such high PSI, you get better performance on the road.
