Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

I really don't know how anyone tolerated the stock B52 LiFeP04 pack and its miserable 1200-1300Wh..... I'd be done in 20kms and very disappointed. Even the *NEW* 2000Wh pack from Stealth seems paltry next to DIY 18650 packs and despite mine only being 22S10P and 2772Wh max - call it 2500Wh at 90V /...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Here's an exclusive, just for us, first look from inside the secretive biknut skunk works of my new Fox Dropper external 4" seat post. Not fully installed yet, lacking the cable, and lever. This is all the way down. Not quite as low as I would like, but haven't tried it yet. I don't think you could...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners?

Hi Your overheating problem may well be the size and weight of your rear tyre, and is that also a heavy duty rim and spokes ? 24 fet might be the answer. :bolt: Probably not. From my experience Stealth builds a lot of extra reserve potential in their bikes. A lot of Stealth owners have installed la...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

What's the prob? I have mt2 and I haven't had any problem bleeding them. I watched a couple of youtubes first, but I don't see any difference from the shimano's on my other bike. I bought a bleed kit on amazon. This is what I do. First remove the brake pads, and install the temporary plastic block t...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

I keep forgetting to report on what it's like riding with a dropper seat post. For street riding it's perfect. It only took a couple weeks to get good at using it. Typically after taking off from a stop I raise the seat a couple of inches to pedal comfortably. Then right before coming to a stop, I d...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Pics of the rear shock and maybe a link where to get it please. And more pics of the bike are fine too. How are your settings working out for the front fork? I bought this shock to lower my bike a little, it's 1/2" shorter than stock. One thing I didn't plan on, but worked out in my favor was since...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

My Fox forks were so good right out of the box that so far the only thing I've done to them was reduce the air pressure slightly, and add a couple clicks of compression damping. The combination of good quality rear shock, and Fox forks has transformed the ride on my bike. Don't tell anybody, but the...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Theodore V: 1) The first part, you are referring to the front fork, right? 2) 28 clicks....that's the compression knob? 3) What is your setting for rebound? 4) The one with 9 clicks, that's your rear shock? What is the type and model??? 5) Is your riding mostly for street? Thanks!!! No this was rea...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

With the hub motor and lots of unsuspended mass, when the bike is in the air , and the suspension starts to extend after compression, the heavy mass of the hub motor tends to push the bike to extend upwards instead of the wheel going down wards. Thats why slowing down the rebound for off road purpo...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

I'm still experimenting with adjustments to my shock. It seems like the more I adjust the rebound damping toward fast, the smoother it rides, especially at higher speeds.

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Some more "quality" from stealth. My aluminium side plates have become unbonded from the steel parts. The "carbon fibre" wrap is shit and I refuse to do all the work of removing the side plates and their aluminium innards, cleaning them up and then wrapping them in more cheap crap. Hence ordered a ...

You got to love the way Texas treats eBikes. When I got downtown to the Trump rally, the police had set up barricades to block traffic. Since to whole street was blocked, I rode past the barricades on the wrong side of the street, and rode a block further to more barricades. There were at least 50 p...

Theo WOW I'm surprised - my CA today shows Max 78A and typically hot off the charger ~90V >6000W and rarely if ever goes below 5500W even down at 78V under load. I haven't played with the CA settings , even if you could I dont think you can go higher than the max amps the controller will run anyway...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Since we're talking battery's, how would you rate this one I bought last December? It's had one hot summer season behind it now, and so far so good, I think. Since new it would come off the charger at 84v, but an hour later it would drop to about 83.8v and sit there another day maybe, and drop to 83...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Thanks for your comments about adjusting the shock CD. That agrees with what I was thinking. I started out in the middle, then tried 3 clicks slower, and 3 more clicks slower. I rode it like that for about a year. Recently I tried 3 clicks on the fast side of the middle, and decided it rides a littl...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Does anyone know if a heavy stealth rear wheel tends to need, faster, or slower rebound damping?

I'm guessing that because of the weight, you're going to say faster?
