Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

Thanks! Yeah trail maintenance is important and time consuming...I recently started building one in my backyard. :) DSC_5792.JPG I can get about a meter of air on my LMX 64 from this jump. :D DSC_5794.JPG Electric chainsaws are also awesome. I have an Ego 56V and it will cut through almost anything....

Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

Any more news on the belt testing? Do you think any of us can help beta test soon? I finally got an ok 3D print of the battery covers. My 3D printer is not the greatest and large/tall pieces like the battery cover tend to get out of alignment, but I finally got an ok print by laying the bottom half ...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Yeah a few of us including me had similar failures. While it does suck, Stealth have been good and repaired them all AFAIK.

Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

Sounding promising Adam. Let me know when your ready for me to do some beta testing. :) But it looks like the bolt of your rear shock is missing or is that just my imagination?: This is normal, but I agree it doesn't look great. That is why I 3D printed these plugs for it: https://endless-sphere.com...

Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

Thanks for the comparison Adam. The app I used on my phone must be way out as I typically only measured 79-80 db peak, 75-77 db sustained from my chain. Grantmac, your not wrong, that is a sizable difference. I went to try and figure out how much in percentage, but got baffled by the mathematics req...

Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

All that makes sense. Thanks for explaining Adam. I like 200A because it's just enough to power wheelie. I'm still only running 50A battery so it tapers off pretty quick and I haven't been able to overheat anything in normal riding yet. Apart from the belt maybe breaking and a bit of extra heat, is ...

Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

Thanks for the update Adam.

I'll put my hand up to test. I like to run my mode 3 with 200 phase amps, so we'll see if it can handle that!

It looks like there is a lot of slack in the belt. Would it make sense to use a slightly shorter belt?

Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

Thanks Adam. The belt 'sounds' promising, although there is still a surprising amount of noise in your quick demo. It almost sounds like your motor isn't operating in FOC mode? As a comparison, could you do a measure of the decibel output near the front sprocket. I saw peaks of 79-80DB with the chai...

Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

I still haven't done a big, planned ride, but jumping on and doing a quick spur of the moment ride seems to be what the LMX 64 is built for. I recently updated my Nucular firmware and after stuffing around a lot with settings finally got things back up and running again. https://endless-sphere.com/f...

You could use Dynamat. It reduces vibrations dramatically so would reduce the noise produced by the enclosure.
Check back a few pages...I already tried this with no change.
It might make a small difference between the motor/frame, but I doubt it would do much.

I installed the new update and now my brake activates mode 3. I can't seem to figure out how to fix it.

Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

Just want to let you guys know we started tests on a 8M pitch belt drive solution, but that first tests are not super promising as far as max torque handling goes. More/better results early next week hopefully. Noise is perfect though. 100% backward compatible. Adam This is amazing news. Thanks for...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Not sure where you went wrong, but I know that cooler temps have a real negative impact and 25-35C is the sweet spot for extracting the most energy so your 'wasted' energy as heat probably actually helped the pack perform better than otherwise. :D

I think a completely closed, thick and fully covering plastic (3d printed?) housing using all three bolts and maybe even coated with soft/rubber material on the in and outside would help alot! Like the red aluminum plate open cover as in the photo's above but completely closed: I don't think so. I'...

Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

Update on my LMX64 sound reduction efforts:


I think I will just ride with it like this for a while and see if I can get used to it. It's certainly better than it was.

I would still like to try more sound reduction at some point, but not sure what could be done yet.

Like that a lot! Thanks for sharing Adam! I'll definitely be up for attempting to 3D print it...assuming I can do it in a few sections as my printer isn't that big. Can you just attach the STL here? Otherwise I'll PM you my email. If there are any other 3D printed parts for these bikes I would also ...

Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

I know this isn't what anyone wants to hear but I think the bike needs a belt primary to allow for less reduction via chain so that a longer pitch can be used. 219 just doesn't seem to run quiet no matter what. My observation from looking at a lot of drives using small pitch chains. Yep. Belt is th...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

MT2 on the front! There's half your problem. I like Magura and use them on all my bikes, but would never put an entry level MT2 on the front. Rear is fine, but the front needs at least MT4, better MT5. My Fighter has MT4/2 Front/Rear. So far they have done very well and I haven't had to bleed them. ...

Nice article from Ron about the LMX64. https://www.electricbike.com/the-lmx64-a-powerful-freeride-e-mtb-from-france/ I like the attention given to the separated left hand drive train for the motor. This is what really sets the LMX apart from everything else. I didn't mention this yet but, last week ...
