Since I can lift my seat up to pedal better, my plan last night was to leave early, and pedal all the way downtown, 20 miles with no power. With only 19 2/3 miles to go, I finally gave up on that stupid plan, sheez :(
LMAO!

Super cool Theo.....since I’m 6’4” tall I find I could really use the extra height of a dropper seat post and, of course the prestige!

Cool posts!

Assuming it’s not stupidly priced I think I’ll buy one when available!

Re: Latest FREY M600 2.0 pictures and video

What did the weight end up being on your bike? I’m wondering what the difference is between the M600 and AM1000.

Beautiful bike!

Congrats.

Re: Perfect Setup Help Needed for Hub 205 with 12f 24f

For what you are wanting to do a Vector or similar frame is your best bet in my opinion. Front forks you can get anywhere, bike shops, eBay, pinkbike......I’d recommend dual crown only! You do not loose a lot of power from full suspension unless your referring to peddling. That is what suspension lo...

Re: Perfect Setup Help Needed for Hub 205 with 12f 24f

Looks like you would need about 4000 watt hours is what I would guess. 150 kilometers is right under 100 miles and I figure you’d average about 40 watts per mile equals 4000 watt hours.

That would be a 20s18p of 30Q cells.

Re: Perfect Setup Help Needed for Hub 205 with 12f 24f

If using a bicycle frame you might want to look at the MXUS. In my opinion regular bicycle rims/tires are not good candidates for the QS205 which is such a heavy motor. Flats will get old for you. With the amount of distance you need/want and speed you desire you may want to think about a Vector sty...

Re: Vector bike and frame owners.

I have a 20s15p 30Q pack. While bigger might be better I can peak 14,5 KW (actually higher but that is tops for my MaxE!) and get like 100 miles on my 45 amp pack.

Just in case you were wondering. :D

Re: 19" Motorcycle Wheels vs 26" Bicycle Wheels (rim and tires)

That is a pretty awesome testimonial. I never had good luck with bicycle tires when I ran them....twice I had to do the walk of shame. That was also when I ran smaller lighter motors, BMC geared, xlyte 40XX and MXUS. When I went to a QS205 I also went straight to 17” and will never go back. The 3.00...

Re: MXUS coming out with a 5K-Turbo motor, 55mm Magnets

So I non stop heated up a Mxus 3k at 7KW and less yet I’ve pushed 14.5KW through a QS205 V3 3K motor. Here After a few years and it’s still going strong. I think there might be some misconceptions on actual power ratings and efficiency.

Go with what ever makes you comfortable.

Re: Neumotor 8057/75 middrive project, belt drive, adding halls, 10kW+

Bike looks really light since there is so much open area. Do your knee’s fit behind the battery cases or do you have to spread them to ride?

Looks excellent! Great attention to detail.

I just recently had my MaxE fixed and it took about 2 months. Total cost was about $265.....they had to replace 6 FET’s and one driver. Shipping is the killer!
