My Crystalyte 48V Kit Arrives!

My Phoenix II kit from ElectricRider.com arrived today!  I ended up getting a free upgrade to Lithium Manganese battery chemistry due to a long lead time for Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries.  The Li-Mn batteries are lighter and more compact so I ended up with a slightly larger 20Ah pack that still fits in the frame.  The kit came with the following items:

  • Crystalyte 5304 Cruiser motor premounted on 26in wheel with 8spd cassette and large gauge spokes
  • 48V 20Ah LiMn custom triangular battery pack
  • 40A Motor Controller
  • APM computer
  • Half Twist Throttle
  • Safety Disconnects (Brake Inhibits)
  • Spoke wrench
  • All wires, connectors, and cable ties required
  • Replacement handlebar grips
  • Heavy duty kickstand
  • Manuals and documentation


The video below shows the unboxing of the kit.  Everything was packaged very securely.


An updated model of the expected performance accounting for the larger battery Amp hour capacity is shown below:
