So Ive been trying to make an electric bike. Ive read that to overcome steeper hills you need higher amperage, but in looking for motors I found a 1000 watt 48 volt motor that is rated for 28 amps and a 600 watt 24 volt motor rated for 32 amps. Which motor creates more torque? If anyone could help me find a good motor for an electric bike that would be great.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
