I'll borrow your thread..
I've been interested in electric bikes for about six years now. At that time I wanted to convert my 125cc Aprilia to electric power. I didn't have enough money at the time (I still don't) so I've not yet done a project like that. Then I got into multicopters and found all these cool electric motors, LiPo batteries etc. I wanted to test what would happen if I mount two outrunners into a bicycle. Here's the result (still work in progress):
Motors: NTM 50-60 270KV
ECS's: Hobbyking YEP 150A
Batteries: Zippy Flightmax 6s 20C 3000mAh
x6 in parallel.
