Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

Update on my LMX64 sound reduction efforts:


I think I will just ride with it like this for a while and see if I can get used to it. It's certainly better than it was.

I would still like to try more sound reduction at some point, but not sure what could be done yet.

Cheers

Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

Like that a lot! Thanks for sharing Adam! I'll definitely be up for attempting to 3D print it...assuming I can do it in a few sections as my printer isn't that big. Can you just attach the STL here? Otherwise I'll PM you my email. If there are any other 3D printed parts for these bikes I would also ...

My bike is 6 yrears old this month. 12,591 miles. Here's a list of all failures I've had.

1. RH swing arm bearing. $16
If I did that it wouldn't look pretty. Good thing I can't be bothered.

Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

Lmx is selling sprockets with o-rings... But one isn't enough... After one battery cycle it's toast. What really works is 2 rings. One each side. Thanks for reminding me...I had forgotten about these. Just ordered one. https://lmxbikes.com/en/drivetrain/203-12t-219-pitch-sprocket.html I might exper...

Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

I know this isn't what anyone wants to hear but I think the bike needs a belt primary to allow for less reduction via chain so that a longer pitch can be used. 219 just doesn't seem to run quiet no matter what. My observation from looking at a lot of drives using small pitch chains. Yep. Belt is th...

No worries, glad to help. The 18" rim was from a friend and I don't know the brand sorry. The rims/nipples were just generic 10g stuff from ebay meant for light motorbikes and scooters, like this: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/36x-10g-3-2mm-Spokes-Nipples-Stainless-Steel-30-310MM-Electric-Bike-Ebike-E...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

MT2 on the front! There's half your problem. I like Magura and use them on all my bikes, but would never put an entry level MT2 on the front. Rear is fine, but the front needs at least MT4, better MT5. My Fighter has MT4/2 Front/Rear. So far they have done very well and I haven't had to bleed them. ...

Nice article from Ron about the LMX64. https://www.electricbike.com/the-lmx64-a-powerful-freeride-e-mtb-from-france/ I like the attention given to the separated left hand drive train for the motor. This is what really sets the LMX apart from everything else. I didn't mention this yet but, last week ...

Re: Nucular electronics - complete kit for ev! [beta]

Very nice teardown. Thanks for posting. I don't think the display housing on the controller that came on my LMX 64 is 3D printed, so the change to extruded plastic may have been made a little while back. I have a 3D printer, and love fixing things myself with it. If I ever need to fix my display hou...

Thanks. I think I was confused as there is also battery setup under the controller configuration. I have another problem also. Sometimes, when I go WOT, it will accelerate for a few seconds, then cut out. It only happens sometimes, and going WOT again usually seems to work. It's almost as if some ki...

Ok, I've done some searching but can't seem to find it.

How do I change the Wh of my battery? Mine seems to be set to 850Wh and I cannot change it.

About 60 hours is the time I spent when I built my 20S14P battery last year and used a spotwelder as Cowardlyduck.

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

If your soldering and using holders then there's hope for me yet.

See how long it lasts you, but I don't think there's many around here that will think soldering 18650's is a good idea, myself included.

Good luck!

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Nicely done Karl.

If you can build these in 12 hours each I may as well give up now. You could be onto a winner if you were willing to sell them.

Maybe I'm too meticulous, but my packs typically take 30-60 hours to make. Hence my pricing that many can't stomach.

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

I tried faster and it nearly killed me a few times when launching off jumps and large humps. I've since toned the rear right down to a medium/slow point which works well enough and doesn't try and kill me. This is for off-road riding mainly though...if I were only on the street like you a faster rea...

Thanks Alan.
This is the solution I wish I had 3 years ago...as well as a 3D printer. If my magnets ever fail me this is what I'll use. :)

Looking good.

I wouldn't bother with any brass or tee nuts personally...too much effort. Why not just design some hex holes for nuts and sit those in it? Nylocks work well.
