Yeah I should really post some updates:
Not a lot of riding in the last couple of months, I managed to kill a cell group a while ago though lack of battery management during discharge. It happened to coincide with buying a house that needed a bit of work and somehow the kitchen got higher priority than the garage
so I didn't fix it until recently (thanks to full throttle with his plastic ruler trick for separating lipo packs). Now my garage is finally in a state I can work in I hope to get everything up and running again soon.
The carbon fiber motor panels have been removed because there is just the tiniest bit of slop (my molds were't made on a lathe) which I found always ended up with the stator rubbing on the rotor at some point during a bumpy ride. I'll make some new ones with nice molds once my new lathe is set up.
It's turned very wintery here recently so I'm going to try a metal studded rear tyre with a ski up front and see how that goes
should make for some interesting vids.
Just this morning I'm building a roll-able scissor-lift stand for the bike to make it easier to work on and have installed a sealed regen switch on the front brake. I can't think of a time when I use the front brake and don't want regen (maybe if I wanted to do a burn-out?), but to allow wheelie control I didn't put one on the back brake.
