Re: The Cycle Satiator, universal charger for the enthusiasts

Hey guys anyone have any info on using this as a sub 32 volt power supply? Basically I'm putting together a pack but I want to test each cell first so I the packs I put in series will have the same voltage. I've been advised to use an iCharger X8 to test cell capacity. My welder also needs two lipo ...

Re: Qulbix Q76R Frame Kits & Complete Bikes PRE-ORDER

What I´vent seen yet its the top speed and range you get, or its not allowed to tell the top speed? since the e-bikes are limited to 25kmh in europe and 35kmh in USA I think. Others have already chimed in with real world numbers so I won't bother guessing. Third party controllers won't limit speed ...

Re: The BEST and FIRST Qulbix Raptor mid-drive build!

Thanks for the lengthy response! So moto rims it is! I'll have to see if I can squeeze in 21" wheels on the Qulbix frame; I have a feeling I'll have to stick with 19". I overlooked that 8 pitch belt !== 8 pitch chain; that does make things a bit more complex. Interested in picking up a kit when they...

I've been falling into the brainstorming rabbit for a 'better' mid drive... 1. Wheels What is everyone using for wheels with this kit? Lightweight motorcycle or downhill bicycle? Shinko?

High Amperage BMS suggestions

I'm putting together a new build in a Q76 frame with a highish amperage battery. Ideally the battery will be 21s 17p 25R cells (340amp max dissipation) with a bms that is under 76mm wide and can be attached to the frame for heat dissipation if necessary. The controller is a BAC4000 which will handle...

[SOLD] 52v charger

3amp 58v charger for a 52v battery. Powerizer brand purchased from battery space. WAY nicer (quieter and cold to the touch) than the Chinese charger it replaced. Paid $105. Asking $40 shipped.

Thanks for the feedback! Where the bolts were got bent open. He said it was the first ride so I’m guessing it was poor installation (forgot the bolts or something). I just figured I should double check that 10-20kw was reasonable because that is a lot of torque concentrated at one point on a bike fr...

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

Any thoughts on this motor? I've read through this thread but there seems to be a lot of back and fourth. It doesn't seem too popular around the forums and I still don't see it on the ebike.ca site or sold by many/any of the mxus dealers. However, on paper it sounds better than the QS205 (aside from...

Re: Qulbix 76R build

How are you liking this bike? Thinking about building something similar but with a bit more power.

Is the chain play on the Qulbix annoying? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_64s2XZEXg

Did you go for the overdrive kit?

@engate - Sounds like your pretty frustrated with this bike, but in general whats your thought on the Qulbix vs Vector frames? I'm primarily deciding between a Qulbix 76 and Vector Typhoon (and their respective mid drives but they cost too much and might get me in trouble). In particular: 1. Do you ...

Re: Mid drive using hub motor

That seems like a sweet setup! Pretty close to what I envisioned for a high speed commuter build (been eyeing the vector vortex and Qulbix 140md). I to am curious about this swing arm and why higher currents would be “a waste”.

Currently I have a beat up mountain bike running a 9c motor at 48v 40amp. It was garaged for 6 or so due to battery damage. Recently I picked up an old stock AllCell battery to bring it back to life. Unfortunately, the battery is way weaker than the 52v it had prior and after 16 rides something went...

Hey, last fall my battery died. I believe there are a few bad cells. It's a triangular A123 battery glued and soldered together by CellMan. Great pack while it worked, but something obviously happened. Basically it charges to full capacity, but then drops by about 8 volts and looses a lot of current...
