2016-01-13 Proposed Location and Mounting of Bionx Battery for the Electric Handcycle

The Bionx motor system has a lithium-ion battery that needs to be mounted somewhere. I propose to mount it under where the basket will go.

Bionx makes a removable battery that fits in a special double level rear rack. We might get a rack and cut it up and use it to mount the battery below the main tube.

Here’s a look at the Bionx battery carrier rack.

Here is the connector that mounts inside the rack.

With one wheel removed, you can see the battery more clearly. I don’t want the battery under the seat, as there is some remote chance of fire, and better to have flames behind you than under you!
