I just upgraded to a 203mm Front rotor. Braking performance is much better than before, although I am concerned about my front forks, they are 'getting on', and tend to flex under load. I am looking into dual crown 180mm options from DNM the USD180 http://www.dnmshock.com/bike-front-forks/usd-180.html
. THey look like a solid fork, and for the money would probably be adequate. Otherwise it's almost a double jump in price to maybe >$800 for anything else. not really looking second hand I don't really want other peoples problems. Anyone in Melbourne want to group buy on the Forks with me to save a few dollars??? (can get adj. seat posts and rear shocks from them too)
I'm considering upgrading a few items, (forks, motor, controller, batteries, bike, etc.) but will probably just end up finally fitting my battery box. For this, I am considering purchasing the HK 5000mAh LiPo Cells at 14S so I can use my existing 48V LiFePO charger. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__18560__Turnigy_5000mAh_1S_20C_Lipoly_Single_Cell_.html
eventually I will go for a Mini Monster Controller for more amps (> 30A), and probably switch to a BPM motor, as my one currently has great speed (45km/h avg - 50km/h tucked in) but pretty poor torque..
The questions is... is it worth purchasing a LiPo BMS for this or should I just pre-balance the pack, bulk charge, and re-balance the packs from time to time with one of Hyena's Super-Duper balance chargers?
Here's a link to the BMS from batteryspace http://www.batteryspace.com/pcmwithequilibriumfunctionfor518vli-ionbatterypackat40alimit.aspx
I have the enclosure all made up already and it's just sitting there not being used. I should take a photo...
Anyway, enough rambling. Any advice, opinions etc welcomed.
