both 30Q and HG2 do up to 60A. The 55A is for disclaimer purposes.
(Lawyers, cover your ears) Darn lawyers. 😜

So we’re safe to operate these batteries at 60A? If so, how many guaranteed charge cycles for their lifetime being operated at the fringe of their abilities?

60A is peak -
You will be running at 40-45A nominal (2200-2300W) for the vast majority of your ride.

Assuming you are in the 40-45A range 90% of the time, most batteries are officially rated for ~600 cycles (so ~ 2 years of nearly daily charge / discharge) . If you are always between 80% / 20% SOC, you can get to 700-900 cycles.

I am still rocking my 30Q triangle pack from 2017 with ~10% drop in overall capacity, always operating between 80/20% SOC, and around 800 cycles. I am very careful about the SOC and the satiator helps to police this a lot !
