Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

The Voloci uses a lot of Tomos or other off the shelf moped parts. They also have several special parts like frame and seat and swing arm. The front forks are bicycle as are the disc brakes. The controller is custom and the firmware is available on line. There is separate company that made a keyfob ...

Re: Astro 3215 12 Turn Motor with Hall Sensors

Hi
It looks like you started out at $190 and your last posting says "Cost Reduced". What is the Cost Reduced price?
Thanks,
Ken

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

I added insulation to the terminals so it is less likely that they will arc to the case as I am assembling it. Andersons for Positive and Negative and no connection for the thermistor contact (no thermistor in the Li battery pack). I included the thermistor contact anyway to close off the pack and s...

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

It all fit. I shortened some leads but need some length for a "service loop" to allow for assembly/disassembly. The wires can tuck up neatly in the area above the packs or at the ends of the packs where the terminals are. I added PowerPoles between the packs and the terminals since I don't want Volt...

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

Making some progress... the two 37V LiPO packs are working fine on the bench into a 20A load. Parallelled the inputs and paralleled the outputs. I bought an 8A Li charger and put a mating connector on it. I put the packs back to back with the leads coming out at the far ends. I taped the packs toget...

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

I would keep the RST's for sentimental reasons, if I keep them. The Avids are very nice. I tried Avid BB7's with a 200mm rotor and thought it was too powerful and went to 180mm. The RSTs were just too slow to slow me. MAYBE newer tech pads PLUS a pro-bike shop to dial them in will work...I dunno we'...

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

I got two lithium batteries from All-Battery/Tenergy and they fit into an empty Voloci battery case with a bit of room left over for wiring! Yippeee! So far, the plan is to change out the battery case charge connector to a Canon type so I don't use my NiMH charger by mistake (and vice versa). There ...

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

Several bicycle websites say that the RST brakes aren't very good but can be improved by adjustment and possibly by higher quality pads. Looks like several people make pads for RST brakes. Looks like the brakes are "DA".

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

For what it is worth, I found some Sintered brake pads that I bought a long time ago when I was trying to save the Voloci RST disc brakes. They are OBE-DR01T. I say "for what its worth" because I never installed them so don't know anything about their performance. They are from F1 Performance and I ...

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

I was thinking of having both sprockets on the same side, but tradition would have them on opposite sides, with the shaft running across the bike. I was thinking of a stub shaft with 2 sprockets. But, since the distance from center of motor to jack shaft would be very short, I'd consider gears rathe...

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

I feel like the year is slipping by and haven't done much on the Voloci except think a lot and buy a few parts. The Voloci is supposed to be 1500W, The controller is supposed to be limited to 40A (I heard) and the stock 36V pack has a 40A fuse (the SLA version has a 50A fuse). I know that you said y...

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

How's the Voloci progress? I liked what you did with the other bike, where you added a long swing arm and put the motor near the pivot point. You created a kind of "power wheel" but with less mass at the long end of the swing arm as compared to a hub motor. I am rethinking of replacing my broken Vol...

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

I don't know of a rolling diameter chart. Doesn't mean it isn't out there, but I don't know of one. I have the stock Savas (MC11, 2-1/4 X 17), Michelin Gazelles (M62, 2.25 X 17) and trail tires, Shinko Golden Boy (SR244, 2.50 X 17). The trail tires are tallest tires I have.

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

Exactly right: BatterySpace made the 48V battery. They also make a 36V battery that will fit in the stock Voloci metal battery case. Its tight (as was the original SAFT battery pack), but it fits. Both the 48V and 36V had thermistor wires run separately out of the pack and all connections are extern...

I kept my Voloci Tomos hand controls and just used different cable-operated brakes. I used Avid BB7 180 mm. No complaints about Avid BB7s.

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

I never had much luck with the stock Voloci brakes. I swapped mine out for Avid BB7 180 mm and they work great. I tried 200mm Avids but they seemed too powerful at maybe 25 mph! I bought some aftermarket brake pads for the stock brakes but never did put them on so don't know if that would fix the br...

The ebay guy does have a shop in NJ. He bought all the Voloci moped stuff when they out of business. He sells the same stuff week after week on ebay but he has wheels and seats and other Voloci parts that don't make it to ebay. He says he has a lot of Voloci wheels. I don't ever get rid of stuff, so...

I bought a set of wheels from Stevil_Knevil. Per his suggestion, put on the Michelin moped tires. Put on a 180mm Avid disc. AND, unbelievably, when I bought some parts from MopedMart on ebay, MopedMart threw in a bunch of extra parts, one of which was the rear sprocket! MopedMart has much of the ori...

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

Looks like Voloci DOES use 415 Chain. The 415H has thicker sides plates and may or may not work due to possible clearance problems. I got the 415 chain on ebay and it was available as normal and pre-stretched (for a couple of bucks more). As far as I can tell, the chain fits BUT as you can see in th...

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

415HS chain on the left vs Voloci on the right (or, shiny vs rusty).

The 415HS fits on the sprockets but it is wider so there may be some clearance problems with the stock Voloci where around the motor sprocket to frame spacing.

I haven't actually run the 415 chain on a stock Voloci.

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

I THINK the chain is 415.

(on second thought, the 415HS has wider side plates)

Re: Nova Cruz Voloci Re-vamp

I have thought about making the bike uglier but more functional by enclosing the area that is now open under the seat, from the frame to the seat. Depending on how it was built, the seat could sit on top of this frame extension. That extra volume could enclose extra cells and the controller. I could...
