It's not just the headtube diameter. Usually they snap at the downtube junction. Think about it.

Re: Animalector's Ebike Builds

You should try the BBS02 on a different bike before selling the D8. Chances are you won't like the former..

Re: GCinDC's Giant DH Comp

Hey G, I'm not familiar with Manitous, but it looks like the oil seal is leaking. It can be fixed. Changing oil will make the fork as plush as when it left the factory. The main concern are the bushings. They do wear out and often require specialist tools. The most reliable forks were made by Marzoc...

Re: GT E-drive from Russia

Thanks for posting the build videos. Very enjoyable to watch. Keep them coming!

One thing of living in apartments I hated is lack of space.

Anyway, here's something in return :lol:

Kind of appropriate, don't you think?

That's the wrong adapter. It's either for Boxxer or Qr20. Rear Hayes adapters are 10.5mm thick with the bolts in the centre.

Not just the halls. The 5V is for all the logic, halls, throttle.. etc. Prob 20~50mA.
How much airflow one of these would give you anyway? Is it really worth the risk and time :roll:

Only??

What are you comparing to? Your friend's uncle's plasma TV?

The 5V regulator inside most controllers is rated to 100mA
