Re: ebike simulator: why hasn't everyone's hubs burnt up?

Can you tell me more about this temp sticker. Who sells them? I've seen these recommended in another thread: http://australia.rs-online.com/web/p/products/0286175/ I actually tried buying a few a while back but they were way overcharging for shipping so I changed my mind. Maybe I should buy a bunch...

Re: ebike simulator: why hasn't everyone's hubs burnt up?

So your motor was virtually dead long time ago, and every mile that you've done since, is a bonus. Well that's a bummer. I love trail riding. I may end up burning up my 9c hub. I think I need a bigger hub or better heat shed. Magic Pie 3 maybe? Hubzilla? Toyota Prius motor bolted to my bike? no ser...

Re: Crimping tool

I had the same exact problem as the OP and was looking for a non insulated crimper in addition to a powerpole crimper. I eventually chose the Andy Crimp pro because it can do 15/30/45/75 amp terminals, and the tri-crimp can't do 75. They also have a non-insulated terminal die you can get for it as w...

Re: Kona Coiler conversion

keyzersoze310; I read your build thread, very informative and thats a really cool looking ride you got there! very stealthy too! How does that batterybag position work if you go offroad? I am thinking of putting the batteries inside the frame to a box of sorts. That somewhat limits the battery-opti...

Re: Kona Coiler conversion

Hey looks like you're building something nearly identical to my bike! I used an older kona stinky, which I believe has the same frame as the coiler, with an HT3525 and 82V lipo. I can therefore predict a few of the problems you are going to run into. If you use DB torque arms you are going to have t...

Re: Is one torque arm enough?

keysersoze310, You had a problem with a very loose fitting axle, resulting in a lot of rocking play in the torque arm and loosening of the axle nuts. Did you ever resolve this issue? If you continued to ride in this state, something is bound to fail. The integrity of the doctorbass torque arms requ...

You need a Greyborg or Crystalyte 54XX motor for that.

The one that fell off looked sketchy from the get go, but I was still surprised because I thought DP420 was nearly indestructible. I'll stick with one torque arm for now while I try to figure out a good torque arm setup tha...

Is one torque arm enough?

So I tried removing my rear wheel a few days ago and to my surprise, one of my Doctorbass torque arms fell off! Yes, I used the DP420, but my alignment wasn't particularly good on the one that fell off. Anyways, while I rethink my torque arm situation, is it safe to ride my bike with only one torque...

Re: Hi power cycles HPC XC-1 EXTREME Electric Full Suspensio

Consider the forum you're on. Most of us are builders. We know the real cost of putting an eBike together.

^-- pure win :) Wouldn't be hard to convert these over to 7S, just a bit of a pain in the butt of soldering. Why do a lot of soldering? Couldn't you just pop the pins out of the 3S and 4S connectors and pop them directly into this bare 7S connector housing? http://search.digikey.com/us/en/products/...

Actually, if the hyperion can't charge them 'out of the box', which charger can charge them? Oh, here's a weird way I think you could charge two of these 7S batteries with a hyperion charger with no additional parts or adapters. I don't really recommend this, lol. This works because the hyperion ba...

I've read on this forum that using partial throttle can cause significantly more heat in controllers, possibly causing controller failure. I'm interested in minimizing this problem on prolonged uphill climbs. Here's an example: Lets say I'm biking up a long 20% grade hill and I want to go 15mph. Let...
