Try Magura Gustav. I know Madrhino uses them because of their thin profile. I think they are the thinnest ones available.

I have the same problem ..above 52km it shows the wrong speed or goes to zero...

And if it works can you show your modification?
Turns out it stopped acting weird before I was going to do the mods!!! So I will leave it alone for now.

Re: Farfle joins the MENS club

Hey Farfle, I'm really interested in your rear swingarm linkage. How did you make it ? Are they all custom made pieces? Did you use a special BB? Bearings, ...etc? Having the swingarm link on the BB seems like a good and simple idea.

Unfortunatly I snapped my Cromotor axle yesterday after a heavy acceleration from a dead stop. I had made some room for larger phase wires... but apparently I shaved to much down :(. Now I have to figure out if it's even possible to replace. I have no idea where I can source a replacement axle and/...

Re: ZeroMotorcyclesAnnounces240%Growth 1stQuarter2012-Blames

how far are we from equalling gas bikes in terms of range and the speed of charge? when will charging a pack on a zero or other electric motorcycle will take the same time as filling up a gas tank? is this light years away or closer than we think?

CA speed data acting weird above 50kph

I noticed that my CA is giving me weird speed data above 50kph??? Its giving all kinds of readings and changes really fast. My pole count is right, the shunt value is right. Any ideas???

Re: stuttering controller

do you mean the add-on current throttle mod on the CA??? That gives you a throttle that's proportional to power, rather than torque, so is better in some respects than a typical ebike controller that has a throttle that's proportional to speed, but isn't quite as nice a feel (IMHO) as a throttle th...

It seems to be perfect for hubzilla. 4000 continuous watts and 10,000 burst watts.

fixed! Well... turns out there is nothing wrong with it! At 100 volts, the throttle is so sensitive that even the slightest variation will cause it to jerk.

Re: My first project : eBike to work

if you're going to run this bike with that much power, I highly suggest some moto rims and tires. The handling is so much better! Talk to John at http://holmeshobbies.com/ He's awesome!
