Re: New Bafang Crank-drives

Not having ebrakes I just use a tiny bit off throttle to ease the power off. There's no delay doing it this way. :wink:

Not really, 1V@15A won't give you the same torque as 100V@15A. :wink:

Re: New Bafang Crank-drives

Fitted a BBS01 to my wife's new Yuba Mundo last night, rear wheel sensor lead was barely long enough - had to rotate the unit down in the BB shell to make it reach. Anyone had experience with lengthening the rear sensor lead? http://www.greenbikekit.com/accessories/bafang-mid-crank-driven-kit-speed...

Re: Cowardlyducks Commuter Build

I think you'll find going from the plush ride of the Fighter to a non-suspension bike is going to be very uncomfortable at the speeds you want to do. :wink:

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Dunno about lifepo4, Stealth manual states that you should keep it fully charged. I can only imagine it's Stealth writing a manual for the general public. It will cause the battery a lot less damage fully charged than allowing it to go flat. But if you really want to maximise it's life, store it at...

Storing any lithium battery fully charged is one of the worst things you can do to it! That and letting it go flat. :wink:

Yeah both discs are 203's, was getting 180's but they ran out before I actually placed the order. All the 10spd stuff. :mrgreen: Shifts were great on my very short midnight ride, I can't wait to give it a real test. http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/au/en/shimano-slx-m675-shadow-10-speed-rear-mech/...
