Hmm shame your finding the noise to be a problem I think you should stick it out though, hubbies are fine for commuting however you wont beat your bike for off road stuff esp as you like getting a bit of air and you like the handling, trick is have 2 bikes, make another bike and make your carbon battery box quickly hot swappable between the bikes looking forward to seeing what you do

I'd love to be rippin' around like that!
My build is coming along..just got a bunch of parts in the mail. Now I can start CAD'ing them up so I can place the order for the custom swingarm from farfle.
I can't wait to join you!
BTW: I like the batt cover, I think you should keep it!
Oh, and is the popping sound I hear in the vid your chain jumping?
lostrack wrote: Yeah, popping is chain jumping, Still haven't nailed the chain tension yet, but most of the time it feels really good to have that power and a smooth rear end. I can imagine a fatass hub motor making everything so difficult to handle.
You can still pedal it to around 10mph...15 you'll break a sweat and bounce all over the place!
Need to uprate the back spring.
Are you in the UK?
I'm building some proper mudgards doubling as battery protectors, every video I make ends up getting the camera lens covered in muck!

One of the keeper plates has moved a fraction (about 1mm) during the process - first time I've seen that happen - it's usable as is, maybe better if attended to with a file... I'll mark it so you can decide what to do. I'll fettle the teeth tonight & post it tomorrow.
I'd post a picture but it looks just like a nicer version of the CAD file above...... ;^)
