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

They do have a supermoto version. I don't see it listed on Luna though.

From your video, it doesn't look like these guys would be much of a challenge!

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

Posted this in the US group buy thread. Needs to be here too. Well, I found it at Luna. Should of bought direct from Sur-ron. Doesn't look like much savings as it is listed at $3,300 and $160 shipping. $3,460 is not bad, just $400 more than I was quoted by Sur-ron. I guess you do get support and not...

Re: Sur-Ron Light Bee USA group buy

I just got an email saying that Luna cycles is where I need to buy the bike. Anyone else know anything about that? Could be good news as Luna does a great job. Just crossing my fingers that the price is still reasonable and hopefully even cheaper due to better shipping costs. Denzel's dirt bike is o...

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!

Re: Electric Hydrofoil/E-Foil

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. I do wish the mods here would have things like subsections where we could discuss items like ESC, prop size/sha...

Re: Sur-Ron Light Bee USA group buy

Just saw this thread. I have emailed back and forth with them too. They want a bank transfer, ie. No PayPal or credit card option for protection. I would love to invest in a bunch of bikes. I think they'll sell great if the price stayed around $3k. If someone does a container full, you might be clos...

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...

Found another company coming out with a board, Fliteboard. Not much info other than they are Australian. Do have the motor on the foil in a different spot.

Re: Electric Surf Board

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

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.
