Re: Sur-Ron Light Bee USA group buy

Looks like fun. What do think so far? Worth the money?

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

Ask Skeetab how the Denzel 7.5 kw motor is working for him. I don't know if he ever said if it was worth it or not. They are smaller than 180mm for sure. http://www.eastgem.net/d7500.html http://www.eastgem.net/images/07-acc-d7500-06-size.jpg?crc=415520608 http://www.eastgem.net/images/07-acc-d7500-...

Re: Sur-Ron Light Bee USA group buy

Do you have an amp meter to check the amps? I'd be interested in knowing what it puts out. I've heard the 750w to one horsepower as the best comparison also. So on paper your 3.3 kw from 60v battery is only 55 amps. That leaves the 32 ah battery pulling only 2c. Should be able to handle much more th...

Re: MultiStar 6S/5200 mAh on sale from US warehouse

I said they are lighter, smaller and less costly than round cells, I, for one, never said they are better. It is well documented here that Multistars should be used in a lower-discharge system and if you can get a higher discharge rate from a "Dolphin" battery, I can only say that you must not be c...

Re: MultiStar 6S/5200 mAh on sale from US warehouse

I bought a bunch of the 4s 10ah multi's. They are my go to battery. I do like the weight and size of these, and have been using lipo since I got into ev's. I do have issues with Lipo and don't really agree they are better or worse than 18650. I have one fat bike with 18650's and I find I ride that b...

Re: Sur-Ron Light Bee USA group buy

Just because people don't agree with you about this ebike, doesn't mean they are crazy. I would never buy this item because I am 6ft 6" tall and the frame is to small for me. I also don't like how loud it is, compared to my hub motor ebike , or that this doesn't have pedals. I got $3000 in my ebike...

There are some freaking crazy posts on this thread! What are you guys smoking? I can't believe anyone would say this bike is overpriced or a waste of money. Under-perfoming, based on one video or its too loud based on the same? The battery wasn't even fully charged. The front wheel not lifting? How ...

Re: Sur-Ron Light Bee USA group buy

I think you're looking at the charger not controller.

The bike looks great! I thought it would be even smaller, judging the Chinese riders. Looks quick also. 72v would be ideal for me. Did they respond to that idea? Now I have another reason to hold off on buying!

Although I hate to see everyone leave and head over to efoil.builders, we need different sections for this type of build. The eskate forum here on ES was ruined when esk8.builders started.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

Don't know about Europe and the VAT, but US is $3000 shipped for the 60v 25 ah. LMX 161 is $5200 plus probably $600 shipping OSET 24 is closer, have a dealer nearby selling for $5000 special order, might have tax. You'll need to pay extra for a moto seat which is an extra $120 unless you like to sta...

They look exactly like the jetsurf board, but with electric motors. Is this just a branded version of the Chinese boards? It said somewhere that they are dual jet...

Re: Electric Surf Board

Saw some updated info about Onean on their Facebook page. I'm sure the info is somewhere in this thread already. I'll repost for my own. Their Carver board uses 48v batteries at 20ah. https://scontent.fsnc1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/20229116_670952183093820_5437740488408359471_n.png?oh=afe0e8e250398a...

All those bikes are over twice the price. The Sur-ron is also 60v, unlike some of the others. We'll have to see how well they work though.

I just got back from the Tesla factory. Did a tour last week there. Pretty interesting. Seems like they were banging away on hundreds of vehicles. I was able to see most parts to the model 3, but didn't see any close to being completed. They are doing them in a separate part of the factory. The tour...

Only fresh water for me. Salt water would eat that alive! As for a new ESC any recommendations? I've seen a few that look promising, but don't want to burn up any with water again. These Flycolor are questionable as I don't think they are fully submersible. I hope to not run it under water. http://i...

There is always that "guy" that needs a vehicle to fulfill some out of the ordinary situation. I hate the comments about, but an EV car can't take me 4,000 miles every day, or can't haul my 10,000 lb tractor trailer. My response is buy a gas car then, but 99% of us don't need something special like ...

Re: Electric Hydrofoil/E-Foil

Got one more quick attempt. Waterproof container instantly took on water and fried the ESC. Still don't know if the setup works or not. It's already getting cold around here. Might have to wait again till spring! Another year goes by and no riding for me!
