Re: Another way to take drive through the normal chainline

I have a bike E recumbent, and a 63/64 230 kV outrunner. This might be the perfect way to match them up.

Re: Manta motors / ebay

The currie motors are pretty weak. They are much smaller than the manta though! I have both sitting here, I'm not sure the manta will fit your bike!

Re: Through Axle Dropouts...

The 20 mm thru axle is in the front. They went from the wimpy 9 mm quick release axle, for cross country, which allows the fork to flex, to the beefy 20 mm, for downhill, to a little lighter, less beefy 15 mm, for trail bikes, all mountain, or free ride. In the rear the most common is a 10 mm (135 m...

Re: Project Velobration: The Common Power Module

I am very interested in this, I have been wanting/planning to build a full suspension dh mountain bike with a nv171 as the jack shaft and an 80/100 as the power source (I need to start my build thread). The big issue is the width, and getting it to fit between the cranks. I'm going to cut mine down ...

Re: Low power bike with Turnigy 80100 motor

I believe the gearbox/reduction unit is a currie, it uses a matex planetary reduction, 4.75:1 or 4.875:1, I can't quite remember, then I believe it has a 19 tooth #25 sprocket, with a one way bearing to a 54 (I think 48 was also an option) tooth on the wheel. Mine was 13.6:1 reduction. I ran one on ...

Re: 2013: Year of illegal fast production ebike

I've ridden the outlaw SS, I was less than impressed, it had good power, and a decent fork, but the battery placement, and geometry was less than stellar (way less, piss poor would be more appropriate, especially the battery placement), I told them it pretty much sucked, and they should put the batt...

Re: Tesla Model S Performance vs Dodge Viper SRT10 Drag Raci

For minimum transmission losses surely everyone should be using hub motors? Unless a single, large in-board motor can be more efficient even after transmission losses? Tesla failing to produce a transmission to stand up to a few hundred Nm of torque, is just poor engineering design. going direct dr...

Easier to mount on the jackshaft yes, but not as good in my opinion. Little to no impact if not pedaling tho. I have only seen one really sleek solution of it so far, my own being functional but not so great. There are advantages and disadvantages both ways. The good, freewheel on jack shaft Less t...

Re: Strong freewheeling crankset

Haha good point! I like the outboard bearing, but I think the bearing and the freewheel would be trying to share the same space. I have a pair of Isis trials cranks I want to put on my norco, but I think I'll go with the gigapipe bb. I'll post up some pics when I get it going.

Thanks Thud, your work is certainly inspirational. That motor you wound for Kim is freaking sweet! I'm almost ready to bag the Nuvinci idea, and just use one of those.

Hello, I have an ICE HV160, brand new, I believe castle will still trade them for the ICE2 HV160. My question is do I want to trade it in or just use it? It seems I read in one thread that the older one is better. Thanks!

BMX three piece chromoly cranks are the strongest, such as redline flights, http://www.redlinebicycles.com/components/cranks Or profile racing, http://www.profileracing.com/estore/browse.php?perPage=0&tag=bmx-cranks Then this adapter allows them to take a freewheel. http://durgendesigns.com/ddfwadap...
