What kind of throttle set-ups is everyone using on their ebike. I need some ideas on where to place the throttle on my ebike build. Also what is better, thumb throttle or twist? Thanks!

I prefer thumb throttle, twist throttle feels kinda aqkward to me on an ebike.

Also another thing to consider is the jungle of wires that end up on an ebike, the best color bike to hide the wires is a black.

I've tried a range of different throttles on various ebikes, the one I like the best is the half twist throttle. You can always make your own half twist throttle by cutting a full grip throttle down to size.
