Re: High safe cruising speed bike considerations/experiences

Plenty to discuss here, with many opinions. My 2 cents is this; Any modern DH geometry will perform great. One obvious barrier of course is frame design, particularly downtube shape. Unless you want to get fancy trying to tuck the drive inside the main triangle, possibly using custom motor mounts, b...

Re: Cyclone 3000W Vs. LR Big-Block single stage

I have both. The LR Big Block is definitely noiser. It also came with a 60amp(55) controller vs the 40A on the Cyclone. Haven't tried the 60A on the Cyclone. I honestly love both, more power with the LR, more stealth with the Cyclone. If I had to pick one, I'd get the Cyclone. Much cheaper, similar ...

Looking at the photos, it seems the bottle cage will hit the rack with just sag, and the rack and saddle before full travel?

Re: LightningRods mid drive kit

I just broke a rear sprocket tooth clean off Yeap! Did that! On the 19 or 21 tooth. Photo coming. Do you feel like you need multiple gears with this much power and this many rpm to work with? If you can get by with a single speed chain you can pretty much immediately eliminate your driveline proble...

Re: LightningRods mid drive kit

X, what were you doing exactly when the chain snapped? Nothing crazy, was just pulling away from a red light, smooth road, straight chain line. Was thinking maybe the chain got damaged when testing out the 120A controller, and then snapped after I put everything back This is not just a mud / bash g...

Re: 3 kW Cyclone Middrive, The Budget Dream Kit

I agree that this kit is a steal for what it can do. I'm sure it can be improved further for little cost. Here's my stock build up, just to test it out. Was quite impressed with how quiet it runs!

Re: LightningRods mid drive kit

Sup guys! Thanks for the shout out on the chain watcher John Bozi. I'll tell you just the other day I had my chain snap, and it flung forward so hard it bent the stainless M8 bolt I'm using 30 degrees forward. Was able to bend it back straight with a pair of 10" cobra pliers. That's after I foot sco...

Re: *SOLD OUT* 17 Inch Moto Wheels - 150 Bux per set!

I'm trying to find a rear hub like you use here. Two sided 6-bolt. Any information on where to find those? or what style or intended application it is for? Thank you!

Re: LightningRods mid drive kit

The six bolt disc brake flange for the rear wheel sprocket will be on the right side. The disc brake rotor will be in it's stock location on the left. I swear I saw a photo of the hub that can do this, dual 6-bolt style. Can't seam to find it again. Any info? I'm going to be looking for a 150mm ver...

Re: LightningRods mid drive kit

Lots of good info there eMTBHunter! I'm still not quite sure why 7-speed seems like a better option? Ok, yes, the cogs themselves are thicker, but commonly lower end components (materials and manufacture). The reason 10 and 11 speed chains are just as strong (if not stronger) is that they are made f...

Re: LightningRods mid drive kit

Has anyone here run the Big Block at 88V? I run 72v nominal, 84v fully charged on the Big Block Typically the shift indexing is not done by the derailleur, but by the shifter. So that should mean that you can use a clutched derailleur with a 7 speed shifter to get indexing at 7 gears but still have...

Re: LightningRods mid drive kit

Sounds good. I'm hearing 16, 18 and 20. 18 is in the middle so that seems safe enough. What sort of derailleur are you contemplating? To be able to shift into 42+ tooth sprockets seems to require either something like the oneup radr cage or wolftooth goat link to modify a 10 speed derailleur, or an...

Re: by pass a BMS that may be the cause of issues

No;, see bolded part of your statement. ;) If the controller can only safely pull 65A then that's what it can pull. If you can program it or modify the shunt (lots of threads about each of those) then you can pull more current, but if the controller can't safely handle it it may just blow up. :( It...

Re: LightningRods mid drive kit

Replacing the shear pins with a stronger material is just stupid. Sorry for the harsh word. We're not talking about using a stronger chain to withstand the higher power. We're talking about removing a safety feature that was just made for that only purpose. Rohloff knows the power/torque their hubs...

Several people have run Rohloffs with Astro 3220s at up to 10kW. Other than needing to back off to shift the Rohloff handled 10k just fine. Still want those links!!
