Re: My 1.5 kwh bicycle

So, maybe conclusion is: If you not pushing so hard direction doesn't matter:)? I was using this brake many years. With this configuration, and all matters is ok.

Re: My 1.5 kwh bicycle

You probably have right:). Direction is wrong. I have this wheel about 8 years, maybe more. On old pictures direction is ok. So I changed this. But do not remember why? Maybe this is a time to reconfigure this setup:). Regards, MIke:).

Amazing:)... I remember that you have 1.8 KWH by zippies. And typically bulk charging this. How many cycles (about) you have up to now? What your voltage level now (over 100kmh its impressive) and current? I see on the map Sewastopol too:) It is Ukraine area? So cross the border:) Nice E-holidays:) ...

Thanks, for responses. Well the 25+C rate is probably more safe option but difference in price is huge... I'll try buy turnigy pack on Black Friday sale. The price is very interesting 5s5ah -39$ per pack. Over that shipping cost (up to 2 weeks) to mi is only 23$ up to 25 kilos of weight. But still w...

Advice - lipo turnigy vs zippies

Hy, I wanna build new pack - 15s2p (6x 5s 5ah). Im in Europe so prefer European warehouse. There now can buy 5s 5ah turnigy (20c) or zippies 20c too. Witch choose will be better? This pack is rather for commuter bike (cyclone kit) so prefer as many cycles as it is possible in best price. So with mar...
