Insane how much lighter the Li is over lead acid. I remember holding both of them like a scale and mouthing "wow" for like 10 mins.

But... could you actually feel it on the bike?

(Honest question, because the battery position on this thing is literally in the worst spot possible for weight distribution so my guess is that you would feel it?)

In a placebo sense, mostly. I mean, 5 lbs on a 400 lb bike is substantial. My mods are always grouped so can't say I directly felt a change. Maybe if I tracked it.
