Runs 10ah of lipo its all aluminium
With a little 500 watt cyclone..
Also had his lightweight wheel set
On it on the group ride best
No worries Kim, I'm impressed regardless, Paul's bike is awesome
I must be remembering someone else who said there bike was around 30kg, Paul deleted a few posts during the meltdown so I couldn't find where he said the weight. Anyway, maybe he's shed a few kgs since then ... I thought he used to run 15ah.
As for the banana benders, I reckon they should use this thread to organise and document their group ride, or maybe we should change the title of the thread?
By all means the Queenslanders can use this thread, i just thought it might attract more attention this one seems somewhat dead bar a few regulars...We can promote it here and in a specific thread if they wish? better chance for more XXXX drinkers to see it perhaps? Was just a thought anyhoot
re: Paul, Nope 10ah, i have his first pack sitting in my workshop right now actually, it has one dead cell in it. Paul gave me the pack but i haven't got to dissecting it as yet, I'll swap out the cell for one of the spares i have here, be fine for the ol Blue cruiser along with a 1500watt cyclone motor ill shoe horn into it:-)
i did have a minor issue today though Simon.... Richard had the day off work so of course we went riding, as you do haha ...so, i thought i would 'show off
' a little to passing cars in some gravel near Wally Deli ( being an ex-hillbilly, you should know it well ?! home of the "Wally Burger" hehee )
anywayz, was rolling along ~10km/hr gave it a fist full rear wheel starts spinning it hooks up REAL
good, the loose top layer of gravel was dry judging by the way she spun initially, however the stuff below was damp from recent rain and the hookworms bit into it, my ev-grin quickly turned to a WTF grin when I hears a loud SNAP
and loss of forward powered mojo
Motors still spinning flat out (my immediate thoughts were "its not electrical so i have a better than average chance of fixing this myself "
) I wasn't sure at the time but had a pretty good idea it was just the #25 chain on the first gear sprocket (and it was, it snapped a link in half, was a lil loose fitting an idler to it to rectify this issue) was not a biggy second still was un touched and we continued on our way to the Backery in Kala sat down and had a fresh pizza roll and Ice Cofee before hitting the road, was a bit of a bummer more for Richard, with only second gear working i had to sit on ~50km.hr...poor ol Richard peaks at ~45km/hr so there he is pedalling like a mother fucker trying to keep up freakin' funny...i pulled over regular for him to catch up...
We has something in the works to fix this though, i drew up this full scale
size Monocoque frame we iz going to build up for him, fitting a 1200 watt cyclone through gear setup-->
No more playing catch up for Richard when this babies running!...well...not as much anywayz
Yet another soon to be EX-Frocker or shall i say he will be de-frocked hehee
