You're not missing anything! Want to know something funny? Lee Hart, the Godfather of Electric vehicles on the EVDL and the EV Tech list suggested something close to what you just said. You know what, I think your idea is maybe better than what I was going to do. There are a few things to deal with, like the bolt heads hitting the pcb underneath the copper bars, but that's not so bad. It can be worked around I think!

Edit: Well, maybe I'll save that way for the car, because I don't need that much copper for the bike version. hmm...

Sometimes you get going in one direction, and you need someone to come along and throw in a little common sense! Thanks, Intrigued!
