Where is the best place for the battery?

Charlie McCormick

Where a battery is located on the bike can really affect the handling. Too high up and the bike will be top heavy - when pedaling hard out of the saddle it will fight being swung back and forth. To far back on a frame not stiffed in the rear, and the bike can "swim" when pedaling out of the saddle. When the battery is located in the frame, it keeps the lines clean and look is stealthy - so that your eBike will fit in more with regular bikes.
