Re: ++Giant Glory DH build + GMAC + PhaseRunner

I have the same dropouts problem...
On my old bike, did a plate and work very well. Some screws and 3m dp420, and its done.
On this bike, it's going to be, more or less, the same, but this frame its carbon...
What company, you will use to cut the plates ?

Re: E-bike + downhill frame + Mxus hub motor + 24s lipo

Hello crew,

Wolfeman, thanks for the comment. In here, Portugal, the wild fires, is a big problem... year after year...

I receive a different controller, from HPC. This allows me, to go with a 52volt battery.

Re: E-bike + downhill frame + Mxus hub motor + 24s lipo

Hi guys,

Some new rubber arrive. Nice. Looks good.
I'm trying to build this, and at the end, still looks like a bike, and ride like one.
I'm going to paint the motor, and order some black spokes.
Still deciding on the front suspension. A good one, cost more than a 1.000€...

Re: Rocky Mountain ETSX70 Conversion

Nice conversion. Thats the look I hope to get... clean and still looking like a bike.
My frame is carbon, and the torque arms is my biggest problem...
Is your frame alluminium ?

Re: E-bike + downhill frame + Mxus hub motor + 24s lipo

Hello crew,

Receive my rims today, 24". Still waiting on the tires.
Next big task, dropouts...
The battery, I decide to go with 14s, 52volts, from em3ev. The shark tipe battery. Its a professional build, with BMS, and charger. And, no need to build a battery box, for me its a relief.

Re: Vintage GT Palomar BBS02 BMX Klunker

Nice. Very nice.
I feel the same with the time on my garage. Im building another ebike, and still waiting for 90% of the parts, and I kill some time, just looking at it.
Take care,

Re: E-bike + downhill frame + Mxus hub motor + 24s lipo

Hello crew,

First dilema...wheels and tires.
I really like one pair of carbon rims I see, but the price...Jesus...it's too much.
I can buy 2 Sun Ringle mtx 39 in size 24, a shop in my area have it in stock, and 2 maxxis hookworm...I don't know wy, but I prefer 24...

Hi guys, Fidel, obrigado. Vortecks, thanks. I follow your YouTube channel. Wolfeman, great to ear from you again. I Want to believe HPC do some kind of upgrade to the motors... I don't read much about the motor, but i believe it's a nice and not so heavy hub motor. It have a temperature sensor ? If ...

Hello crew, Long time no see... I change home, and I have a nice place for workshop. I live in a nice area to ride an ebike, but do not have one. :cry: The problem of the powerful hub motors, is the big weight. You lose the bike feeling. And that's a no go for me. I'm going with another project, for...

Re: E-bike + downhill frame + Mxus hub motor + 24s lipo

Hello people,

The bike is not with me, anymore.
The disk was not an easy fit...and the pads do not grab the disk at 100% ...it was a compromise. Have a spacer and 1 washer, and bigger screws.

Take care,
Luís.

Good luck with the bike.
