Re: Storm Bee electric dirt bike

I was hoping/wishing for $5-6k USD. Probably not going to happen. Can get used Alta for $7.5 which is still going for a premium for a defunct manufacturer. Wish I could have picked up a bankruptcy edition where I heard the Alta was selling for $5k. If the light bee is $3.5k at a third of the cost, I...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

The other thing is smaller 17" wheels with the x160 and single crown fork. Charger, sprocket and chain will also be different. You might want to upgrade everything and have it be cheaper, but you need to compare to the $5k Segway version. They released rehashed info on the Storm bee today, but no pr...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Marketing gimmicks aside, I read 3000$ for the X160 and 4500$ for the X260, and additional discount for preorders. This fact alone will put Luna monopoly in sever danger. I guess Chinese people don't care too much about loyalty: when the big fish shows up asking for 10k+ units, they will be more th...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Also, replaced the headset on my Sur-ron with the Cane Creek version. Much better. Hope it will last a few years. I replaced the headset myself, so who knows about that! Nice to be out riding again.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Saw this over on Electrek. Looks like Segway is selling a rebranded version of the light bee. https://electrek.co/2019/11/05/segway-unveils-electric-dirt-bike-sur-ron/#disqus_thread https://i0.wp.com/electrek.co/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2019/11/segway-dirt-bike-header.jpg?resize=2500%2C0&quality=8...

Here's a picture of the other side from the Alta forum. Says they got it from surron Facebook page.

Thanks for trying! Mine's the original version, couple pages back. The newer ones look much better inside! Did they try to waterproof them?

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Yes. It's on the AC side. Yes it's the original Kingpan version charger. I'll probably end up getting another charger at some point, but why throw away one that just needs a five dollar part replaced?
If it's just spark prevention I'm okay with that. My 72v lipo had much scarier sparks!

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

:bigthumb: Thanks! At least I know I won't be doing damage to the battery or anything. Works fine shorted out. I have already spent enough this year on the bike with new forks and Saint brake pads. I don't need another $150 charger. Noticed my headset moving on my last ride, so that's next on the li...

We need to know what it was. Kinda crispy to see a number. Need a good one to look at. Can you tell if that was on the input side or the output side?

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Woke up to this from my charger. Can I short this to do a quick charge? Can I buy these anywhere and solder them or should I just buy a new charger?
Thanks for any help!

Re: Lift efoil electric hydrofoil review with video

Yeah, wind is great when its blowing. I've wasted years of my life waiting for the wind kiteboarding. Now, I can ride anytime I want. My efoil cost $4500. Probably close to what your board and sails cost. :wink: Hopefully the boards will get cheaper in the future. No way they should cost $12000. Mot...

Any updates on the drive? I thought this thing looked really promising. Or is everyone just out riding without issues?

I'm selling my fastace fork if anyone here is interested. Needs to be rebuilt, doesn't hold air very well anymore. In good shape besides that. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/e12000.m43.l6300/7?euid=851014dad58d4310b8636699cfb71133&bu=43621393348&loc=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F323863714...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Works for me too. Its priced at $5150. Is that a Van Halen reference to a reference about being a crazy lunatic? Great album, I'll have to give that a listen.

I'll admit I ended up watching the whole thing for the entertainment value. For some reason Eric cracks me up. A bit too much dope smoked. He's smart and dumb at the same time. How does he not know what a stator is? How many times was he told that it wasn't a belt drive, but the gears meshed? Plus, ...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I just bought a dnm, to replace the fastace after a year of riding. Blown seals. I had an x-fusion rv1 on auction that got snipped for $350. Another fork that might be good is the marzocchi 380. It's made by Fox. They sell for $500 new on eBay.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Thanks for the link! Exactly what I was looking for. I will start at those settings. Motomoto recommended 70psi on the bottom and 40 up top.

My fastace suspension is sucking. Bottoms out now. I'm a total newb at it. What are the recommended settings for someone around 190lbs? Seems like I am getting way too much sag. If I pump the top chamber to 75 psi, I only get two inches of travel. I have rebound set up to middle and the bottom right...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Comparing an mx snowbike to the sur-ron is absurd. They weigh about half as much. I think it depends on how deep the snow is. An electric snowbike will happen sooner than later. To a point you get the weight and torque advantage with electrics. I bet the Alta motor bike would manage as it currently ...
