Vector bike and frame owners.

I think it is time to create independent forum thread for Vector bike/frame owners on Endless Sphere.

Let me introduce myself: My name is Artur, I'm 23. I am Master of Science of Computational Mechanic in Technical University of Munich.

Me and a team of enthusiasts have been working on developing an electric bicycle, more powerful than standard 250W.. We ended up with something we could not imagine at the beginning, partly because of unbelievable fast science and engineering progress development, partly due to success of Vector in e-bike community. It let us work passionately and develop our new ideas about Frames, Bikes, Components, Logistics, Services and many more.

At this moment over 300 Vector frames were produced and delivered to the clients.
Endless number of improvements was made in original frame design to make it better, stronger, lighter. Our bike can overtake supercars in power-to-weight ratio!!

This thread is created to let Vector owners communicate about anything connected to our passion - e-biking!

Welcome guys!

The Vector sales thread is here: https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewto ... 31&t=61259

Ok. So i guess Chris king headsets are top of the line. But since I don't really want to spend 125 on a headset (maybe I'll change my mind) the cane Creek 40 is good? Is everyone getting a regular height headset or zero stack?

Has anyone found any nice square cranks without 2 or 3 rings?

What is the largest diameter front chainring that can be used without hitting the frame?

Whatever you want. The chainring doesn't hit the frame (if you don't use spacers).

Do the frames come with head tube bearings? Conventional, integrated or semi integrated headset?

No, you have to buy and install them (unless you negotiate that with Artur).
They are conventional headset 1.1/8" Ahead (34mm)

One Vector owner had problem with 135mm motors and brakes caliper (was too far from the frame and to close to motor side cover). There is a solution- spacers for rotor, and spacers for rear caliper:

I see that most of the Vectors are equipped with a springshock.
Is this FOX RP23 going to work on the frame? I am about 82 Kilo's

I'm going with 20s8p Samsung 25r. I have plenty of room left for more but want to keep it light. I'll also put the controller inside.

I would have liked to go with those but they are never in stock! I went the "cheaper" route, x25 Turnigy 20C hardcase 4s 5000mah packs. Gives me 20s 74V @ 25Ahr.

Is anyone having issues with running a single speed setup? The front chain ring is so far away from the rear free wheel. I might have to add a cassette in the back to get the chain to align right

I can't help you out because my motor uses the 150mm dropouts. your motor is 135mm so that will cause a lot of misalignment. You will need to use spacers on the other side to get more alignment in the freewheel side.

I went with the Turnigy 4s hardcase packs as well. I'd like to use 18650 cells, but the Turnigy packs are cheap and easy to wire up to the Adaptto BMS.

I only have 20 packs now, but I'd like to bump my pack size up to 25, or even 30 packs if they will fit!

Routybouty, I'd like to see pictures of how you fit your batteries in your Vector frame.
