    Seeking feedback on FLX 2018 battery sizing

    Not sure how popular this particular brand is but we have some FLX replacement batteries and it is my understanding that that these may be the new 2018 version. We don't have any 2018 with which to test so if anyone has one they can check to confirm it would be appreciated.

    Thanks for posting the size. I am thinking about using this on a hardtail and I need to make sure it fits.
    How does this battery typically mount? Can I easily mount it on the downtube?



      Hi Robert - these batteries are custom-cased to fit in the FLX brand specific frame cutout/tray and electrical socket. You'd probably want to go with the more generic bottle-mount battery packs like the Shark or the Luna magnetic mount.

        I see now that they fit into the frame. I am a fair fabricator so I was thinking I could go that route. You may be correct that the Shark case will be cheaper and easier.
