Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

When we got home, mom saw the road rash on Jets head and hands and blew her top. haha yeah that's something we have in common! Both my kids plowed up pretty hard on up my electric skateboard mere hours apart - and of course it was in the school holidays when mum was out and dad was on duty. The eld...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

Why is it amusing that those who haven't experienced the bike's power want to be assured that it has enough? There was a video posted here that seemed to imply that the bike lacks grunt on bigger hills, and another on the Web saying that the 6kw motor feels more like 3kw. One of my vids or someone ...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

Where this thing really shines is in tight single track, hard enduro type riding. I take the Sur-ron to places I wouldn't even go with a mountain bike. I do climbs with it that would have me shitting my pants (or not even attempting) on my KTM690. Descents as well. I have full confidence dropping i...

If you really want to impress me Alex show me the same internals of the controller - points will only be rewarded for revealing 100v fets and caps :P

Re: Stealth FUTR owners builds and pics

yeah it's well documented, and it's not an issue. Also you've only bolted down one end so it'll pull in a bit once you tighten down the other end. Yours is my own chrome one right ? Ribs along the bottom or not ? From memory the earlier ones had a flat bottom of thicker material but no ribs. In the ...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

Annecdotally I can tell you even at 5kw the hub feels more potent and responsive, but then it's running a bigger controller turned down in the CA so it'd be higher phase currents. But the hubs do bog down on the steep stuff. In a flat drag race the hub pulls in front straight away then gradually kee...

This is our other 2 members of our bike fleet.. I'm glad you confirmed that was a 20" wheel fat bike. At first I thought it was 26" and I was thinking "damn that's the biggest Thai woman I've ever seen!" :lol: Sounds like a cool part of the world to live/ride in.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

Here's my latest testing on the light bee (ya happy Adam ? :P ) This one is squeezing the absolute max range out of the bike, in economy mode. Still heaps of fun even with the power limited and great for lengthy exploring expeditions like this one. This is more of a vlog style video with alot of dis...

Anybody gotten past 1600km? I'll have to check, my button actually fell out so I have to jam a piece of wire in there now if I want to check my stats! I've been doing alot of riding but probably haven't gotten this far yet. Maybe 1000km ? My back tyre is pretty much toast - a combination of soft co...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

Now i can ride 20kms every day instead of 100kms once a month! Made the same observations 6 years ago when I first got my Stealth Bomber. And I made the same observations 10 years ago, before stealth existed! It's how I first got into building ebikes, for all those exact reasons. Back then ebike te...

Surron vs dirt bike proof fence.
The surron is skinnier than most dirt bikes, but it is THIS skinny ?

Well that's ruined that :P
I have a new max range from the surron in economy mode, testing vid coming as soon as I can find where I dumped the footage!
In the mean time, here, have a wheelie :mrgreen:

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

Yeah I thought light bee was a mis-translation from Chinese, and that it SHOULD be firefly, but on the box etc they still call it light bee, and probably don't know any different. It's certainly not the first time chinglish names or instructions have made it well and truly into the western world. It...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

Surron are working on a street/ sports bike motorcycle so I'm sure they've have proper VINs , either by request now on these existing bikes or in the very near future. Not that it's of any concern to anyone who doesn't own one of these bikes and has the intention to register it. Looks great Jay. BTW...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

Hyena- I see you already replaced the bars and grips. What did you end up getting? I went with protaper mx bars and grips and switched out the stem for a BMX one too. It's not 100% ideal as it doesn't have the knurled grippy part for the stem in the centre but it seems to be holding on OK after tig...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

just in case you didn't / can't read: contact the manufacturer, ask them to build a new bike model similar to the Stealth/Qulbix, which being manufactured in China and based on the bike pricing many of you already have, should be around half to one third of the equivalent Stealth/Qulbix Ah, there h...

Re: Stealth FUTR owners builds and pics

It's a alloy stator H40, which is basically a crown these days. Controller will be a crystalyte 18 fet sinewave job running 80A at 21S for around 6500w peak. I could turn it up to 100A for 8kw odd but I think 6-7kw really is the sweet spot. I've had my alpha turned down to 6kw for back to back testi...
