Re: Better deal than electric bike?

anybody find a cheaper one yet?

Seems like you can find the 1000w(really 800w) version for 499, while that overpriced site on page 1 sells it for 999.99.

Should be able to find this scoot for 1k>

Re: Noob - 48v 1000watt Rear Conversion

great conversion. Now just to get a DH Bike and make it look like a mini moto x bike.

What did the top speed do when you went from 12 to 15s?

Can you maintain 34mph for long periods?(WOT)

Re: Using 20s2p setup

ah,

my fireplace is a ventless fireplace(natural gas) with a chainmail pull cover. If 4 10s lipos went off, doubt it would vent it from destroying house with black smoke.

So would you run the small fridge? Like at the warmest temp? If closed would it protect the garage if lipos went off?

Using 20s2p setup

Hello, Going to buy 4 10s 5000mah zippy compacts for 20s2p. I have a hyperion 1420i for charging, as one 10s20ah pack. How long will this take? I am going to keep the batteries stored, in a waterproof box OUTSIDE. About 20 feet away from the house. Is this too much security? I have 2 babys so I dont...

Re: Better deal than electric bike?

watched the vid...and i want one.. Wouldnt it be cheaper just to build my own...for 1600 I feel like I could build 2-3 of em.seems the 2000w(35mph bike) only runs a 48v 12 lifepo. Imagine running 60v and welding a pedal shaft for some faux or real pedals..faster, cheaper, lighter, and more transport...

You could HONESTLY weld up a pedal shaft going to rear wheel on the non sprocket side and have a BICYCLE.

Re: ht motor and effiencey

yeah thats true. I did order a pack 3 weeks ago..one week later nothing so I cancelled the order.

I already have a hyperion 1420i.

I might just build up a vintage 2 stroke moped....for 6-700 I can build up a 40mph bike that will do my commute.

Re: GNG, 1000W 48V BB-drive, $400

So now that everyone has dissected this kit...is volts or amps more important for getting more top end out of this kit.

If I want a reliable 35mph commuter, is this kit still out of the picture? Anybody race a direct drive or geared hub?

Re: ht motor and effiencey

Ok, Looks like the 9s 5800mah zippy compacts are the best value for the buck right now. 400 shipped for 4 of em, which comes to 72v 11.6ah(still very shy of 100v)... any idea for battery? I can get 6 of the lifepo4 from hobby king which is about 70v 8.4ah, thats 490 shipped....but how to bulk charge...

wow, so the HT motor really rocks at high voltage.

If i was going to cruise at a solid 35 mph on flats, what sort of voltage/amps should i run?

Any advice on those lifepo4 batts?

I have a 12 mile there and 12 mile back from work commute, will however charge at work. According to the simulator, I can actually get 13 miles out of a 8AH pack. With a top speed of...

Re: Specialized Big Hit FSR

nice! What kind of metal was used to build the box? How did you TIG it to the existing frame? Would MIG work? Thought it was hard to weld to aluminum? I guess the only downside to this setup is that your frame could crack where the box is and not know it? On the plus side the box adds maybe only 5-1...
