Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Been a while since I’ve posted here, I bought my SurRon in 2018 after the initial rave reviews I read about here on ES and have never stopped mod’ing it, the only things I’ve left stock are some covers and trim, belt tensioner and the frame. 4ED99FAC-C69C-45C0-AECD-8BC8642C6F6E.jpeg 000AB8E4-50EA-4B...

Re: Dave's 80:1 RC mid drive kit build log

Hey Dave, I finally got around to building my Tangent Bike(Nicolai Helius AFT) which thankfully, is almost done. I think I may have bought one of the first kits you made back in 2015? Believe it or not it sat in it's box for the last two years while I straightened out my life... I did however, acqui...

Re: AFT 5kw 29er mid drive

Welcome Very nice, clean build. I built an AFT bike a few years ago, once I had it all in place and properly adjusted it’s never let me down. I did run into some problems in the beginning with frame slip where I bent the whole structure but that was truly my own fault. I replaced the main structure ...

Ripper 2.0

I built my original Ripper mountain board about three years ago & in that time I learned a lot about what worked & what didn't. Recently a friend of mine commissioned me to build one for his son and I reluctantly obliged. Not that I didn't want to build him one, I just had to find the time t...

e-Loaded "Fat Tail"

I've been building & selling the boards that I make locally over the last year or so. My formula is to keep it simple to give it the "too few parts to run" look. So far I've sold eight in total. I use Loaded brand decks exclusively because I feel they're just made better. For this one ...

Re: E-Loaded "Polk"

^^You're right I have that reversed, sorry.
Higher ratio means more torque and acceleration, but lower top speed. Lower ratio means less torque, more heat, higher top speed. Using a smaller pinion or larger hub is to lower the gearing. Using a larger pinion or smaller hub is raising the gearing.

Re: E-Loaded "Polk"

I live around New York City and its quite flat here but in testing I found that It could climb a hill as fast as i could go down one. I weigh 185 lbs and it doesn't strain or get warm even on long burner hills. This i attribute to having the correct pulley and hub gearing.
