It appears the build your own SLA wiring kit comes with 3 jumpers (one with a fuse) and the wiring harness to the controller. In the video, only the two red (unfused) jumpers are used. Am I correct in assuming that you only need the fusable jumper on a 48v system? Does it matter where it is installed between the cells?

The fuse for an SLA battery

The fuse can be used for added protection but is not necessary. It also doesn't matter where the fuse is in the setup.

All things being equal, how much theoretical difference is there in regards to speed and range between 20" and 26" wheels? EXAMPLE. two bicycles same bicycle weight, zero wind, no incline, 48v 9ah, direct drive front hub.

All hub E-BikeKit hub motors are "wound" (in the case of direct-drive) or "geared"(in the case of internal nylon geared motors) to compensate for the smaller diameter of a 20" wheel. In other words the 20" wheels have higher windings and gear ratios to compensate for the smaller diameter wheels and result in the same top speed as the larger wheel sizes. The range is the same as well.

Professional advice on which e-bike conversion kit is right for you..

Need help deciding which ebike conversion kit is right for you?

  1. 1. What kind of bike?
    2. Does the bike have steel forks and dropouts (where the axle enters the forks)?
    3. How much do you weigh?
    4. What kind of distance per charge do you require or what is the typical range you will ride?
    5. Is this primarily to get up hills or mostly flat terrain riding?
    6. Will you be pedaling most of the time or not much?
    7. Is top speed a priority? Rather go 20MPH or 17MPH is okay?
