Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Looks like after around 48,000 KMS my seat decided to crack and break... Then lost 2 bots... sounded like someone had a go at shooting me... Luckily Stealth is honoring its Lifetime warranty on the frame.... Back to the factory for a fix-up ! Capture.JPG Yikes! Another one :shock: If this happened ...

Thanks guy's :)

My up and coming LMX 64 should be an interesting build...I'll try and do a series on it. :D

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Looking good TV. Question for everyone...what lube do you use on your rear shock bushings? Mine have been getting squeaky recently and I just threw some PTFE spray on there, but have no idea if that's a good idea or not. In the past I've used WD40 and regular lubrication oil...again, no idea what's ...

I threw together a little video to 'launch' my new youtube channel 'Ebike Garage'. Enjoy!


I'm open to any constructive feedback...new to this as you can probably tell. ;)

Nope, smaller if it works without an adapter....otherwise I'm happy with 203mm...just wanna know what size. :)

Re: LMX 64 : Freeride Ebike with dual drive and torque sensor

We tested mt5 a few times, but we dont like the plastic master cylinders spongy feel and strengt. The MT4 doesn't have that problem, but is not dual piston...I use one on the front of my Fighter, with an MT2 on the rear. I will probably go this combo again on the LMX. What size rear disc works best...

Re: LMX 64 : Freeride Ebike with dual drive and torque sensor

Very nice. Really looking forward to getting mine. I think I'll pick blue for the colour. :)

I like to keep the mud off things...what mud guards will work nicely with the rear triangle design?

Re: Leaf / leafmotor / leafbike high efficiency 1500w motor

I'm back to trying to convince leafbike to produce a 0.27mm or 0.2mm lamination version of this motor.. Offered $500 for a single motor to cover any R&D costs they may incur. Fingers crossed. Ask them to make a 45mm wide version too while your at it. That would really rival the MXUS 3K. :) Cheers

Re: JP spot welder

How big was your SLA battery? I use a large one that was intended for a large SUV or ford expedition. It welds .15 nickel very easily. It's the old battery from my SUV, 750CCA, but is about 7-8 years old and was removed from my SUV after it was drained from an interior light being left on overnight...

Re: JP spot welder

I'm currently building an 18S14P pack from Sanyo GAs's. I found my old SLA was lacking punch and I was having to crank the knob all the way up to get decent welds. So I made a little 4S2P pack from old/spare 18650's and wired it in parallel with my SLA. It seems to be enough and now I don't need to ...

Re: LMX 64 : Freeride Ebike with dual drive and torque sensor

Personally I like the square BB. I might be forking out for my frame, but that doesn't leave a huge amount of $$$ for uber expensive power metering parts. I also don't like spending big on parts that get damaged easily like the cranks and rear derailleur. At least for the kit, I think the BB being s...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

TV just watch out you don't alter the geometry too much. When I changed the forks on my Fighter from 180mm to 200mm it somehow caused my cranks to start hitting the ground a lot more. Replacing the rear shock with a longer DNM solved it for me and ultimately I went back to 180mm forks anyway. I woul...

Yup...in my 8 years of E-Biking, I have not had a good experience with a BMS yet, and seen more than one pack destroyed because of the BMS when the cells were perfectly fine.

Will the kits be painted? Can we specify colour?

Also, still no info on top speed??? What is the speed at the recommended 52V?

Re: Adaptto Mini-E/Max-E Owner's Thread

Thanks Madin.
I don't have a BMS and the only other thing I have plugged in to the battery is a small DC-DC converter, but that was off via a separate switch.

Has anyone else done this? What rate have others seen the idle state consume?

Re: Hailong Case... TIGHT!! Aaagh!

I have plans to try and fit as much as possible into one of these. Any one reckon it would be possible to do 14s6p? Failing that maybe 15s5p? I don't need any BMS, or switch or USB, etc. and I'm not afraid to cut away some of the inside of the case if necessary. Cheers

AWESOME news with the noise reduction! My one big gripe = solved :mrgreen: :bigthumb:

For those of us ordering kits, is the thumb throttle an option?
