Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Youtube absolutely took a dump on the quality even at 1080p so hopefully it still looks ok to you guy's No it doesn't...it looks terrible. I can't believe what YouTube does to perfectly good images.

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

I'm curious about the gearbox on the B52's. How fast can you get up to before you run out of Pedal power? Can you still pedal at fairly high speeds, or do they spin out pretty quickly? Can't speak about B52 - mine is more like a B17 in terms of age - but with the 5404 motor WOT in 9th gear, I can s...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Keep in mind that once the axle slot is damaged fitting a brand new motor won't solve the issue and if there's any play at all that allows the axle to rock on regen it will chew out even worse and/or break the stronger axle. I discovered what I was doing wrong was using a small allen wrench to tigh...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

CD haven’t you modified your Fighter massively including adding an Adaptto controller, high voltage pack and a derailleur? The Adaptto & high voltage alone could be the reason for your issues. More power, more powerful regen. With such a powerful bike, you need to pay even closer attention to proper...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Very interesting info John! My guess was that the new Fighter pack was some type of LiMn chemistry because it weighs around 10 kg and is 1.5kWh. Lithium Nickel Cobalt Aluminum Oxide - like the sound of that - apart from the nasty cobalt :)

BTW, I drove out to the Tesla Gigawatt Factory site. The guards wouldn't let me go past the ECP, or entry control point, so I snapped a pic and left. The ECP is over 2 miles away from the site and is a private road. Next mission is to do some cross county riding into the construction site and get s...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

I do like the sound of 98V Adaptto in the Bomber on the trails but the 30Ah pack in the Fighter has changed the way I ride & charge. Rather than charge after every ride like I did previously, I find the best way now is to just keep riding until I've consumed around 24Ah leaving around 20% in reserve...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Emmett I'm not sure but I think it's of the manganese variety of lithium...it weighs around 10 kg and really feels plentiful in terms of usable range. Because of that large capacity, power delivery just seems to keep on going compared to the last pack which was LiFePO4.

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

I think I can say with maybe not 100% certainty that you have a problem with your pack, possibly a fried cell or 2. I would contact Stealth...they can repair it or point you to other solutions depending on your location.
