Re: Help Me Build My Daily Commuter?

They are telling this because of the brake cut-off. They don’t supply the switch for hydro brakes in the kit. Hm, e-brake for mechanical disk brake: $16. E-brake for hydraulic disk brake: $209? or it would probably make more sense to provide a trip wire, which is only $39 - but I bet not one ebay k...

Do you have lots of hills in your area?
Yup, my off-roading takes me up some pretty gnarly stuff. I could climb a wall if gravity wasn't an issue :lol:

Re: DC-DC Multi-Purpose Voltage Converter

Hi Lyen, noticed the voltage range at max 55v. Im running a 52v nominal battery (58.8v fully charged). Will this still work? Trying to power a 7.4v light.

looking for dc/dc converter

Found a really great bike light for my bike and would like to hardwire it into my system. Light uses 7.4v LG 6400 mAh battery. My bike is 52v Shark. Anyone got a link to a dc/dc converter for me? Thanks

Re: It's now Spring 2018.. Why haven't e-bikes gotten cheaper?

Brand new Kona Lava Dome hardtail. $700 BBSHD Kit with chainring and 52v battery ~$1350 2k + for a "decent" ebike. I could go out and drop $5000 on a full suspension bike, but Id rather go get a motorcycle for this much. I could buy a decent running used 4x4 for the amount some bikes cost these days...

Re: First build - Help me decide on my battery

PF vs 30q is this. (per cell) PF = 2900 mAh capacity with 10A max discharge continuous. 30q = 3000 mAh capacity with 15A max discharge continuous. multiply Amps (discharge) times # parallel for real max discharge i.e. 14s4p 30q = 52v with 60 A continuous. The quality of the cells is the same, the st...

Need a front wheel kit. 24" 24v

Ive got a guy that wants me to do a conversion on his trike, problem is hes kinda poor and is on a budget. Ive done a bit of web searching and cant really find a CHEAP 24" 24v front hub kit for his trike. I know its slow as heck but hes got some old lead acids (they work) sitting around waiting for ...

Re: Kinni's NEW conversion

That's just throttle only markz. The entire purpose of buying this kit was for the pedal-assist mode, and if I need it having the throttle option (like when I'm in the completely wrong gear at a stop light and need some help taking off). On my old 9c hub motor, it was throttle only all the time. Ped...

There's nothing legal about a cyclone unless you're planning to use it off-road exclusively. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_bicycle_laws Legality on high powered ebikes comes down to intelligence.
