AGM batteries were chosen for my electric bike because of price considerations. I picked up the batteries for around $20 each and decided to design a bike around them:

The plan is to experiment with the Thunder Sky lithium iron yttrium phosphate batteries in a Geo Tracker next summer.
What is there to experiment with? The Thundersky is well proven in regular electric vehicles. A friend built an electric R1 using them years ago. He also does a plug in Prius conversion with a 50 mile pure electric range. They aren't too good for high performance due to the max discharge rate of 3C.

This is one of his projects.
