Re: LMX P2 : Freeride trials motorcycle frame development

It's gorgeous! Time to give up on my GNG and order one of your frames :)

Let me know when you're ready to sell one, I'd love to test one of these!

Re: Qulbix Raptor 140

Is anyone considering a Raptor with a LightningRods big block motor driving the left side? (72V X 60A = 4,300W) The result would be similar to bzhwindtalkers LMX P2...(http://www.endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=61030) I am pretty tempted to do this. I think I'm nearly sold on the Rapt...

Re: GNG, 1000W 48V BB-drive, $400

i can't see a front derailleur in your pics. I use one on every bike as chain catch...even if single speed. Never lost a chain recently.. even at several kilowatts... Only way i loose my chains is by shifting under load by accident... then they disaggregate easily. I don't need one, I run single sp...

Re: GNG, 1000W 48V BB-drive, $400

Chain drops are my nightmare too. That is when i usually break something. I recently added a chain guide near my chain rings. As that is where it drops and then wraps itself around the bolts of the chain rings on the inside, usually warping the chain and as you mentioned, sometimes pulling the dera...

Re: Friend being harassed by police.

Being legal is not an issue, if you're not drawing police attention. Legal ebikes, scooters especially, are those who are experiencing police harassment here. I am 67 and riding ebikes that are 30 times the legal power limit, yet cops never bothered me. It is not about age or performance, it is abo...

Re: GNG, 1000W 48V BB-drive, $400

I haven't posted much in here lately, mostly because my kit has been incredibly reliable these last few months. Only problem I get is the odd chain drop after getting too much air. It's ugly, but it works great at 4000w :) http://i.imgur.com/AQZQT4bl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/yjzqXW3l.jpg http://i.imgu...

Re: Post with a video of a cromotor over 100 mph

This thread came at a good time, I just pulled my cromotor out of the closet and I'll be lacing it up.

Sounds like 24" downhill rim + 32S are a tested & proven combo?

Any recommendations for 24" rims?

I was hoping to do a 34S pack but just realized the 4115 Lyen controller only goes to 132V.

Re: lost one of our best minds here, rkosiorek, has died

Hi Successor,

I am fairly new here and never had a chance to speak to Rick, it's always sad to hear of a great mind passing away.

I would be interested in purchasing a lot of the equipment that Rick left behind, what is the best way to contact you regarding that?

Re: Water Bottle Battery .. bmsbattery.com

Got mine today, first impressions are great! I had to use TNT to ship it which cost about $120, but they were able to declare it for less and I didn't pay duties.
