Re: Kepler Bottom Bracket Friction Drive For Sale (Finally)

I sent a PM to Kepler xuriouasking whether the FOC VESC he had tested/repaired long time ago was what has made it to the kit.

I received notice of a reply from Kepler, but no access/record of it, also ES site down at the time.
I cleared out all PM folders for a fresh start in a ticipation.

Re: New Build with EGO 56V Home Depot Battery - Wow

Charlie that frame space looks ripe for a BB apex vertical drop-in battery case and spring lock top of the battery like the lawnmower has. The vertical railed box is probably a shape that could be crafted with thin plywood. A manual wood block latch for the lock until evolving to a spring load. An a...

Re: Turnigy Multistar - lightweight 10C cells

Echo Silviasol, for any other lipo consumer device it's a convenient habit as well. Partial discharge storage from last use, charge less than full before next use.

Unfortunately even notebook power management doesn't have battery preservation profiles, so little hope of smaller devices having it.

Re: Turnigy Multistar - lightweight 10C cells

What cell voltage for storage? I'd go further for the moral of the story, don't buy full pack quantities of cells until your project is complete and waiting for long range, use a small test size pack during the build. Many parts on 2nd hand markets for anything are new for projects that didn't event...

Re: Turnigy Multistar - lightweight 10C cells

with my turnigy 20C packs i was always replacing bad cells. This is why I'm happy I am using 18650 cells now and not lipo packs. I believe the problem is not supporting the packs and they get squished easily. Even slight pressure will start warping the outer cells. Surprisingly, they can get squish...

Bikepacking is normalising frame bags so it's hard to tell the difference at a glance.

Thanks, makes sense.

For future anyone like me: No, you can't take only the drive side cover off and bolt it straight back on (edit, unless you're lucky and have a svelt touch). See above instruction ;)

I removed the drive side cover, 6 bolts. Now I can't get it back on. Axle has stayed in, bike was on its left side lying on crank/pedal, me kneeling working over top of right side, so only lifted the cover off (didn't come off easy either). I've tried many times again with the bike standing up, stil...
