Re: Rewiring a Crystalyte HS3540

it is always good to use the gear puller hooks on the stator instead of just the side plate as it could crack. You can't use the gear puller hooks on teh stator, because the center of the gear puller has to push on teh axle which is part of the stator. You have to use them on the cover edges to pul...

Re: Rewiring a Crystalyte HS3540

Gear puller is pretty slick and glad I bought one from the get go. I think I paid $20. Makes it really easy to push out the shaft from side plate, remove the stator (bolted to dropout) from the rotor (attached to spokes) AND most importantly reinstall the stator into the rotor! The magnets are very ...

Re: I freed a 4 inch Dragonfly that got its neck stuck in a split frond

I learned a neat fact about them when I was travelling recently.
I guess they are in the larval stage living in swamps for years before flying, so the one you saved could have been 4 years old.

Re: I'm having problems with my Tiny BMS

Never mind, after a lot of searching to see what windows 10 required for USB-UART drivers I found the solution, sort of the long way around. I checked to see if there was a windows update, and I don't think there was one available at this point in my search. When I went to device manager, it showed ...

Re: Fantastic BMS And Where To Find Them (?)

Yes, it was my fault. However, it is the failure mode that is the concern. In the real world all kinds of things can happen, and power loss to the board is possible too. BMS is supposed to protect the pack, but it did the opposite. Thank you for the information and transparency cricketo. It allevia...

Re: 19" Motorcycle Wheels vs 26" Bicycle Wheels (rim and tires)

Great chainring!!

I thought 62 tooth was pretty big and would give a pretty good cadence.

You should be able to pedal at 100 km/h.

Re: 5-16S Smart Tiny BMS preorder - 30/150/750A rated

Hi everyone,

I was wondering how people have been liking the Tiny BMS, I'm thinking about picking one up.
I see there hasn't been too many reviews, and in this world, minimal reviews means not too many issues.

Thanks,

Jeremy.
