Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

All you really need to do is turn the cranks and run all the gears from 1-9 for a couple of revolutions and drain. This can probably be done with the Boxx off the bike. Thanks for the feedback Rick... and also for the advice on the tube install. Unfortunately, the tube and tire install didn't go as...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

PERFECT..!! - Thank you so much for sharing. I couldn't imagine there not being some type of maintenance on the vboxx. I just so happens that I was JUST Reading back on page 255 of this novel the discussion between you and Rix and CD regarding this topic. Judging from what Rix posted, it sounds lik...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Hey buddy! I have same fork as aebrennan - Manitou dorado pro, mt5 brakes, 52T sprocket with sine wave. Nothing else changed yet. This is all the SurRon really needs. If you weigh over 225, go with a 55t rear sprocket, under 225, the 52t is perfect. The suspension and MT5 are perfect for the SurRon...

Well I build them to make some money and had a bunch of leftovers, enough to build this one. After this I will prolly concentrate my time on making sur-ron better.

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

You will be very surprised how loud your bike actually was once you try out modern sine-wave controllers. Yup, with ya there Alex. Can't go back to square now, sounds like a steam engine compared to sine. :lol: TBH, I'm surprised Stealth hasn't moved to a sinewave controller yet...get with the time...

Any recommendation for which forks to get from Luna? I think I'm probably going to pull the trigger on one of these in the near future.

Thanks heaps for you’re feedback guys! I guess I’ll try and make contact with Suntour and see what they have to say.
Let us know how it goes, I had no luck with Suntour North America and couldn't get a hold of anyone else.

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Just ride a mid drive for a few minutes, and you'll never notice any controller noise from your Stealth again. :) No shit. My SurRon and Alta make way more mechanical noise than any squarwave controller I had hooked up to a hub motor. But in all fairness, mid drives offer more advantages than the D...
