I keep seeing stuff like this about HK and my scrotum shrivels about the order I have waiting for their American site. I'm fixin to ask for $300. worth of LIPO and a $100 charger in ths same order. I would go nuts looking at batteries without a charger. I don't think I could leave them alone. Then I'd be in a sticky wickett, dead new batteries with no way to recharge them. Too bad you can't call them and bitch about it. That would probably result in a DOA charger. My sympathies, TC, keep the faith, I'll send you one inside a burrito if I have too! Just let me know how it goes down man!

RallySTX wrote:Looking forward to the pics, but don't catch cold on our account. Sorry you are having typical issues with HK China. When will they learn? You would be better off ordering another charger from another site. I twould be there sooner, and the typically DOA crap from Hong Kong could serve as backup, in the off chance it arrives functional. I really wish I could be more optamistic, but after all the horror stories, it aint easy! That's why I'm buying another hub now instead of batts from HK USA. By the time the cash arrives for a decent buy, I'll have a better idea of their success with customers. Did you check Ebay for a good used charger?

Get a Dicta freewheel. you can screw it on from the front, flip the assembly over so the motor drive will not spin the freewheel off the threads....boom! your in busness.

Dunno if that's what is causing the problem but if it is you need a much *larger* chainring on the back, to go with the larger freewheel tooth count.
54 / 11 = 4.909....
49 / 16 = 3.0625
so to get something equivalent to the 54, you'd multiply the original ratio times the FW tooth count (16): 4.909 x 16 = 78T
78T is pretty danged big for a bicycle-chain-type ring, but you can get them (or make one).
Alternately, if you don't mind a jackshaft, you could put a conveniently-sized sprocket on the bike-chain end of the jackshaft, connecting to the motor's FW, then use the original smaller chain and sprockets from the other end of the jackshaft to the wheel.
Just getting a larger rear sprocket will be simpler.
