Building an electric bike, how can I calculate my top speed and battery life?
I've been looking at this (http://www.monsterscooterparts.com/24vo500wamow1.html) motor, and I hope to power it with this (http://www.monsterscooterparts.com/12-volt-yt12b-bs-scooter-motorcycle-battery.html) battery (will be using two of these). How to I calculate the battery life using this motor, and is there any way I can calculate the max speed?
The bike is predicted to weigh aprox 50 pounds, i'm about 160 plus 20-30 pounds of books and the like in my pack.
Thanks in advance!
