Very easy way Matt, DON'T USE ES to host your pics, there are many online sites that offer FREE picture hosting, your isp net account also likely has ftp space available as part of your web plan, thats what I use to host most of my pics, photobucket is a good free hosting service if setting up an ftp client to upload to you web account ftp space ous to daunting a task?

I went through all of my posts with attachments last time and put the pics in my Photobucket account. Now they are linked to the ES so have not as yet gone away. Some of you have way too many posts and to do such a thing would be very tedious. But I miss the pics they are indeed worth a thousand words in many cases. Specially in the tech sections http://www.endless-sphere.com/forums/vi ... 98&start=0

Dude... did we lose all our pictures AGAIN?!@!

I pay like $3/month for a web hosting account just for stuff like this. I suggest you do the same.
ES facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/125035107565566

The all-arounder: 8T MAC motor on a Trek 4500.
The new all-arounder: Bafang BBS02 on a Turner O2 full suspension.
The wheelie machine: 20" Rear Magic Pie II on a Trek 4300 MTB
The Bus: ??? on a 'da bomb' cargo bike frame

Pro-tips for noobs: Charge RC Lipos to 4.15v, stop discharging at 3.5-3.6v | Use torque plates/arms! | Rear mounted hubs are always best

yes....if phpbb is so unreliable, then maybe the forum should stop hosting photos completely.

We could all use third party hosts for images ( I use picasa - it integrates beautifully with my laptop - two or three clicks to import from my camera and publish online - but there are plenty of other ways to do it)

The "post a reply" page could be edited to include simple instructions or a link to a FAQ for posting image links. It would not really be any more difficult for noobs than attaching images is already.

back on topic, I would love to see the pics, that video rocks. I have seen the hooligan online, and it's a tasty little bike. Don't see them often on CL here though...If you can stash enough lipo on there for a 20 mile round trip, it could be my perfect bike :D

Just one of my build logs is over 100 pages thankfully 80% of the images should still be there
its only when i post singular pics i sometimes use the ES server...
I have a photobucket account but TBH its far quicker using the ftp space that comes with
your interwebs account, download a copy of Filezilla and your in business, takes less
than 10 seconds for me to upload an image, another 20 and i can have it posted
on ES... worth looking into anywayz Matt.

p.s nice mono, wanna see one now with the 3220 doing all the work hehehe

Word of warning....make sure your interwebs people are plenty robust. I lost a bunch of stuff when Freeserve bit the dust in the UK, and they were by no means a small operation.. That's why I use google now for that sh@t. chances of them going under are slim to none.

yeah, freeserve was one of the biggest UK companies....2 billion dollars worth. They got bought out by Orange (Wanadoo / France Telecom). They ported everything over to orange but if you don't log in every 3 months or something, they delete all your stuff......just sayin...

Matt - It looks great in the pedal-powered mode and very serious. Are those the 20" rims you have custom ordered and offered for sale? And please also let us know the changes to the chainring and freehub.

Yes that is the same rim as the group buy rims are.

Those cranks I had lying around. They are fsa carbon cranks.

Well, since the yellow trike is gone (sniff, sniff) I am moving forward on the Cannondale Hooligan build as my next flagship demo bike. So, to that end, I had Tommy from FFR trikes obtain a set of very custom wheels for me from Industry 9. These wheels use my 47mm wide rim in the rear and a Sun Ringle 40mm wide (IIRC) Envy front rim laced to I9's heavy duty hubs by way of custom length downhill (.110" thick) red spokes. It took a month for them to make these for me. But, the wait was worth it. They are lighter than my previous rims and I am sure they are stronger.

This bike will receive a new style motor (not telling about that just yet) and, most likely, a radical new drive based on my DaVinci (also not saying anything about that yet). :mrgreen:

I expect it to take about a month to get more goodies on hand for this and about 2 months before the motor is ready (maybe more).

I will keep you posted.

Matt

Wow those red spokes literally look unreal... like they are photoshopped in.

Nice looking bike!
1st build: Dahon Jetstream folding bike. Quick, reliable, capable of 32mph. Light enough to lift, folds for easy transport by car/bus/train.
2nd build: RC powered 2009 Norco A-Line. Top speed 39mph. Built like a tank, it's resistant to Boston potholes, can stop on a dime, easily goes up/down curbs when necessary.
3rd build (just started): Scratch build ultimate utility bike. Based on a common power module using a NuVinci left side freewheel.
