know-Ped to Iped 2012 conversion

Postby Guy H » Fri Aug 03, 2012 9:58 am

After riding my electric goped sport , my friend girlfriend asked me to build one for her.. :wink:
parts list:

*GoPED Know-ped frame
*6374 192KV brushless motor
*200A controller
*6S 10A Lipo battery
*8" Kenda road tires with aluminum rims
*signal regulator +BEC + thumb throttle
*shimano 140mm + 10$ right caliper
*gear is 12:65 , average speed will be 32 km/h

I chose to start with the electronics box until the rest of the components will be here
The box made from 200g carbon cloth outside and two layers of fiberglass 140G inside
perfect box! No defects.

Update (4.8.12)

After wiring the electronics and batteries I need to place it on the scooter frame
To do this I need the deck (I'll cut it tomorrow)

That's so much more braking than is usable on that scooter that it's probably more unsafe than not having a brake. I hope your friend's GF has a decent glide ratio and a thick, leathery hide.

Sorry , but why write such nonsense?
the brake is 140mm just like original IPED 2012 , you can see it here :

I ride this scooter for 2 days and the brakes work great , the scooter stay stable.
do you really think that 30 km/h scooter without brakes will be better? :? :? :?

Whatever you say. My experience with 140mm discs on small wheels relates to cargo bikes made by my friend Jeremy:

Image

He uses 12-1/2" wheels, about 1.5 times the diameter of those on the kick scooter. And he gets powerful braking, even with a loaded long wheelbase cargo bike that won't tip forward under any circumstances.

I guess you must be using particularly weak calipers.

The rider's center of mass is so high and forward over the wheelbase of one of those ridiculous kick scooters that a front brake is inherently very limited in how much braking (as opposed to crashing) it can do.
