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: Stealth FUTR owners builds and pics

Epic Battery build CD. Thats huge! What a long ranger. I just did a quick edit of a little spin I went on today on the BETA MAC 12t. It actually goes a bit faster than I thought now that I gave the battery a good charge so 45-50 on the flat is achievable, even with little hills and wind, it really ...

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...

Re: Stealth FUTR owners builds and pics

Not so sure I can agree with those comments about the Schlumpf ...Stealth use them on the Fighter for a reason and I'm yet to hear of any of them failing. The Schlumpf on my Fighter from 2011 is still going strong and I've put it through a hell of a lot of off-road abuse. In that time I've semi-reg...

Re: Stealth FUTR owners builds and pics

What I believe you can install is the Schlumpf Speed Drive, http://www.schlumpf.ch/hp/schlumpf/faq.getriebe.engl.htm#E or better its cheaper version the ATS Speed Drive http://www.ats-speeddrive.com/tpl/all_sd_tc.html Only two gears, but better than nothing I agree here that the Ats/Schlumpf is the...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Maybe a short strip of brush (for doors against draft or even an old toothbrush) where normally a tensioner would be positioned just before the rear sprocket/pulley could get rid of the most damaging debris? I would place it a little crooked/slanted to direct the debris to the side. tochtborstelstr...

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

Regrding rolling resistance: I think too that rolling resistance might play biggest role between these two small, almost identical outer diameter wheels, but one wheel being slightly wider. As you said it: ''would be hardly measurable''. Regarding Rim: It does make noticeable difference if you weig...

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

if weight is the same, the 17 will have less rolling resistance, even though it would hardly be measurable given the PSI was the same in both tires. There would be a noticable difference in the weight of the rim, a 17x1.40 rim is about 6-8 oz lighter than a 16x1.60 rim generally speaking.

30Q ages well in high-rate use situations and poorly in low-C rates. 30T is a 2170, but has fantastic power density, and would be the ultimate hotrod/drag pack cell. 40T is also a 2170, and has good power and fair energy density.

Re: Alta Motors Redshift

I'd be very interested to hear how that turns out too - I guess you'd have to get a fairly stiff spring on it to cope with the bikes weight? You don't have to. The Fox 40 Float is an Air fork so you can dial it in based on your requirements. Put more air in it if you want it to be harder,or let som...
