I decided to buy a 28mm Mxus hub motor and controller from Kinaye Motorsports since he ships free in the USA but I see he isn't listing the small motor any more. Here is the big 45 mm motor but these are so big that you have to use a single cog in the back.

Mxus is one of the new darlings of manufacturers along with Leafbike since they are using the much finer .35mm laminations in their motors which make them more efficient.

Kinaye also talked about custom packs but I don't see them listed now. 72V would be nice if you want to run 40 mph once in a while but you can also do it on 48V with the right motor.
Luna Cycle also seems to be pretty stable and would be much better than ebay or Amazon for support.

Of course is the founding father of kit sales and does the best independant testing. The new NineC motors are nice.
