Re: Waking up my old Stink-E - with updates

Hey 1KW The torque plates were quite simple and the older Kona's have a great little "pocket" to utilize. WP_20140930_003.jpg WP_20140930_007.jpg WP_20140930_005.jpg So the plates are contained in the little "Pockets" that are created by the drop outs. Once in place and tightened up, they are solid ...

Re: Waking up my old Stink-E - with updates

I do indeed have the intake closer to the Axle and exhaust at the furthest perimeter. I truly don't believe it matters what side you have either one on, since both sides of the wheel spin in the same direction And being my rear disc brake is so big and basically covers the entire area of the hub mot...

Waking up my old Stink-E - with updates

Wow, been a long time since being on endless Sphere. Lots of new and cool stuff here. I miss it. My old Stink-E has been sitting for about 6 or 7 months. She needed some serious love too. But she has held up up very well for the last 4 years and considering what I was putting her thru. Brakes really...

BEST vent hole pattern for Hub motors

I am ready to Vent my rear hub.
I did some searching on this topic but got SO lost in all the threads.
So I'm hoping to pin point and save time by asking the pros....

Drilling a rear hub motor for ventilation - Has a hole pattern/size been determined to be the BEST ?!?!?!?

Re: Greg's Stinky Build

Here is the initial template I created for my torque plate.
They fit right inside the pocket and once the axle nuts are tightened down, they are secure.
Same shape for both sides.

Re: Cromotor vs 54xx - Fight!

points taken. Thanks As I mentioned, I have NO idea how much they weigh so it was just a theory for the backpack. For your question as to how will that extra weight on the handlebars, negatively effects the steering? There really is no question about it....it will effect your steering negatively.......

Curious as to if you plan on a Direct Drive hub motor or a geared one (maybe I missed it in the thread). I eventually went through two geared hubs and ended up with a direct drive. The "clutch"...for a lack of better terminology, just couldn't hack it. I miss the torque, range and weight savings of ...
