Oh man... Didn't saw a Alta sales topic ;(
I sold it to a guy on the Alta Owners Forum. Didn't advertise it in any standard forums. Had I known you were interested, I would have hit you up first.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Fake news? Bummer. That would be perfect. I sold my Alta because I has having too hard of a time manipulating it around due to my TKR Surgery. I am looking for something under 150 pounds and this could be the best option yet. wait until chinese new year to make judgment.. while its not yet confirme...

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

Can anyone else chime in if 12g will be ok for a 19" rear moto rim with a QS 205 hub for street use? Just concerned if it they will be too thin. Am trying to use a thicker gauge if I don't have to. If you are using a nipple that is at least 5.8mm barrel diameter, it will work great for most rims in...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Offroader did that shinko 3 inch x 18 tire fit on thr stock sur Ron rim? No rubbing on the sides against frame? Good quesiton, I didn't actually try and see if it would fit. Considering a 3.5" shinko 241 tire just about fits, this should fit no problem. It doesn't seem to be all that much wider tha...

By the way, the LMX 64 frame and electronics passed mechanical loading and EMC testing for L1E-B :thumb:
On our way for homologation, we have preorders open for the 45km/h version of this bike.

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

I'm still experimenting with adjustments to my shock. It seems like the more I adjust the rebound damping toward fast, the smoother it rides, especially at higher speeds. This is normal and it will feel smoother as your shock returns quicker and spends less time in the compression stroke, which is ...

Yep that’s the plan, cut to size of hole and glue on the inside with epoxy. Steel / chromolly will retain the structural component Of the side piece give me the factory appearance without the only bond of self adhesive on the stick on “carbon fibre”.

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Some more "quality" from stealth. My aluminium side plates have become unbonded from the steel parts. The "carbon fibre" wrap is shit and I refuse to do all the work of removing the side plates and their aluminium innards, cleaning them up and then wrapping them in more cheap crap. Hence ordered a ...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I too wish the Storm Bee was down around 220lbs, that would be a competitive weight. Taking weight out of it will probably be a big challenge though. I also wouldn't want to lighten the Light Bee but rather get some real suspension to handle additional battery capacity so I could run the motor near...

Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

Ich kann dir nur Heddesheim anbieten und ein LMX161 der nächste wäre wohl Österreich. Deutschland wüsste ich sonst keinen. Leise ist wohl anders wie man hier schon lesen konnte. Es ist das stärkste aber auch lauteste "Ebike" was noch nach MTB aussieht. Translation: I have the LMX 161. It kicks ass!...

A drop in 72V battery is now available that doesn't require you to sacrifice your OEM one. Great for those who are running aftermarket controllers.

My fear would be how to fix something if it broke. If I crack my Sur-Ron frame or swingarm I can fix it.

Since I can lift my seat up to pedal better, my plan last night was to leave early, and pedal all the way downtown, 20 miles with no power. With only 19 2/3 miles to go, I finally gave up on that stupid plan, sheez :(
