I’m planning to build a recumbent bicycle, using a Grin Tech GMAC.
I’m wondering if anyone is using the latest Tesla/Panasonic 70mm length batteries?
I’ve got lots of room for batteries. Would like to have a pack that has around a 50 mile charge. The recumbent will weigh around 75Lbs, less batteries. I’m also using a horizontal steering fork, with a 20” wheel and a 26” rear wheel. I’m connecting the pedal crankset to a brushless motor, for charging batteries and also have an option to directly power the rear hub motor. There will be no drive system connection to the wheel, only indirectly.
Thanks,
Giovanni

The beauty in a bike is its efficiency - it remains one of the most efficient ways to move humans around. And now you've ruined that efficient drive mode by forcing vegan power through a generator, battery, controllers and motor for locomotion. Why?
