      Final report
      I finally was able to get to go out and do a Battery check on this trike
      As I suspected the Big Luna Battery comes through again
      even with the 20 inch rear wheel I was able to go 48.5 miles with out peddling
      and that is all I wanted to ride that day, I had seen enough to clear this thing
      for sale, I know on paper the numbers worked out
      but I am the kind of tech that I want to see it personally work in real world conditions.
      Part of my guarantee to my clients that I sell conversions to is
      If it does not do what I say it will
      I will buy it back with in 30 days.
      So before I go shooting off my big mouth I make dam sure that
      the power system will bring it on HARD
      when I left I had 58.7 v when I got back I had 51.2 v Battery to spare
      I wicked it up one time and saw 27.5 mph on the CA and it still had a little more,
      that was enough for me I was supervised that it would do that with the 20 inch rim
      note the 20 inch rim fed 50 amps and 2600 watts is a rocket out of the shoot
      If you need to cross a intersection or get out of the way it hammers that.
      This will be my last post Hope you enjoyed the ride
      It is time for me to change hats and move into the next faze of my little venture
      Doing the marketing Goal for the next 12 months is to sell and install 10 of the big batteries
      I would really like to thank Gary Evil Kaneevle and Joel in customer service for all their great help
      These are the max go to guys

      Best wishes to all GW see ya on the other side

            The weight of those DD motors tends to drive a piece of glass or a thorn through the tires? No problem with that so far on my DD hub bike (K.O.W.) but I only have a couple hundred miles on it so far. I can see taking the torque arms off etc is going to be a pain in the butt when it does happen.

          The tubes are ripping on the top of the tubes
          on the sport bike with the 26 inch wheel I never had a problem
          but on two trikes with the 20 inch wheel we have had 3 flats all tube ripped on top
          turned out that the rim's had some ruff spots on the inside I cleaned them up and re taped the inside of the rims
          that should do it
          changing them is not too bad I carry extra tubes and a 3/8 ratchet and a 17mm deep well takes about 20 min to do a change

            I bet there is enough torque to spin the tire on the rim. The tube stays in place because the valve stem anchors it. Although I am surprised the valve stem wasn't ripped off. We used to put screws through the rim and into the bead on hot motorcycles.
