your the first of some 600 views in a while to actually speak, gregory, thanks for the compliment
I am looking forward to at least putting up a detailed build done properly.
Once my first load of 6 batts gets here i will be able to really look at if i could ever arrange them on the bike, but honestly i wouldn't be happy unless i could take them off of it in a case or something, so until i can weld a lot better and have a press break handy i wont be building any thin aluminum sheet batt boxes. I haven't decided on something to keep them from puffing up yet; if anyone has any good suggestions that don't involve very malleable floor tiles im all ears
. These batts will ideally not be frocked with much, so i could duct tape them if that actually helps... maybe i will make a topic on this.
SO. Got some money today, ordered the rest of my pieces essentially. Paid for the seat post, backpack, the rest of the batteries and the other two bmedics, bought ptfe wire from bulkwire, grabbed some regular bike components from niagra cycles, and finally placed my order with ebikes for spokes and CA. Still need to buy connectors and jst extensions from somewhere; hk was out of both of those crucial things bastards, and i had seen the jst extenders BACK in stock just recently.... Need to grab tubes and tires unless i want to use the kenda kinetics i already have. I might, they are in good condition and im thinking i may just buy roadies in the spring. Bought some of that silicone tape.
So it will be a Nine Continent 9*7 in Sun Rhyno Lite 26*1.75 in winter schwalbe marathon tires with 396 studs, 24s3p 20c turnigy, bulked charged on two 48v 7.3 ah meanwells and balanced via four battery medics that will connect via one large 36 pin connector. I will take it to 100v off the charger or 4.15/cell. I will have 12 awg ptfe teflon going to the phase and 28 awg ptfe for the halls. I will have a thudbuster seat post and an axiom swift hardpack for the batteries. I'll be running 4mm bullets between the batteries going to 100 amp anl fuses which will be series'd together going to either one huge anderson or a bulkhead bank of smaller andersons. There will be a 25w 680 ohm precharge resistor integrated to avoid massive sparks. I will run a CA on the handlebars, and i will have a dual pull e-brake on the left and throttle brake leaver on the right. Three speed selector with my lyens 18 fet controller which i think/hope is configured for regen at 100v already. I will start the 9c off at between 2.5 and 5 kw and see how it goes without cutting the cover into a cheese grater; my commute is only about 15 minutes remember, and the bike will sit for hours between rides. Only one major hill early into the trip. I will have a temp sensor on the stator either way, and will keep it at or under 100c. Disk brakes front and back.
I still have to finalize fenders, a rain proof backpack cover, tires and tubes, and connectors. Lights too, eventually. And a lock. A frocking good one. Im also going to try and just get one of my robotics professors to just let me leave the bike in an office, or locked INSIDE the college in a stairwell under a camera or something. The batts will be with me anyway, but I know how easy it is to dremel any lock. They say if you have to lock up outside, maximize your protection with more then one KIND of lock, that way the thief would need multiple tools. Unfortunately, they have yet to make a bike lock that I have seen that would stand up to a lithium powered dremel cutting wheel... I freed my own kryptonite lock in about 3 mins but you could do it faster with the reinforced cutting disks i now know. I used those rock composite ones that break away.
no real pics today as i didnt drill the frame yet, but i'll get a single speed freewheel tmrw and see what i can fit on the inside of the frame; id rather bolt straight through i think, but if there wasn't enough room for a bolt on the inside i could thread tap the dropout steel and keep it flush on the inside. Tmrw i will also aim to get my two drill press tasks done at my parents place; drill the headtube bolt and enlarge the axle hole ever so slightly. And bearings. I will get those tmrw too.
