New to this forum, my first post. I want to say that I am 78 years old, I am partially blind, so a bike is better for my transportation need's.

I have built and sold five ebikes.
So I know hoe they go together. Thats about the limit!
I now have a Trike fat tire that I built, number 2 the first one I built has a bent rear axel, long story.
I am located in Broken Arrow Ok. burb of Tulsa! Great city, good people!
I belonged to another forum, and got run out,I was accused of being a troll ,I do not even know what that means?

I asked a dumb? I guess ut was a bad question to ask, because I was unable to get a answer. I gave them all the details that they asked me for. Still no answer!
I hope this site treats me better? We shall see? Im in hopes!
Thanks for reading!
I will and try to be a good member!

How far can I go on my Trike, miles? The total weight is about 240Lbs, flat terrain! No wind, 48volt lithium battery 13ah.
So far I have only been able to go eight miles? Seems short to me, tire pressure is the recomended at 20psi.

Try a 52V 30AH battery. the higher AH the farther you can travel in the seat.

That might get you, according to your weight and being on a Trike, i'd have to guess 25-27 miles,
maybe 30 or so.

Ride Safe!! :cool:

Also think about this, 52V 30AH battery X2 and you'll get 30 miles for sure if you ride using PAS and very little if no throttle.
So if ya can afford two batteries then that would be a good investment for extened miles in the seat.

Yes you can.
If you're going for ALL throttle then get 2 52v 25ah batteries at the very least then you will be able to
switch batteries when 1 battery gets to the low point.

What kind of drive system to you have on your bike? Mid drive or Hub drive?
