Re: Light weight full suspension mountainbike --WITH VIDEO--

I think the reason why he does left side drives and not run power on the crank or right side chain is to avoid any problems. Probably he has already tried right side drives years back and come to the conclusion left side drives works for him and his hi powered Astro's. This build was initially goin...

Re: Light weight full suspension mountainbike --WITH VIDEO--

Awesome work as usual Matt,
When are you going to a bb drive version to see how much power you can put through the bike drivetrain?
Myself and i assume many others will be very interested to see the results,problems and how you adapt around them.

P.S. i run 6kw peak through mine and its fine .

Re: I seem to toast Freehubs

Chris King hubs are the best available, i have put over 9500 miles on one at 2.5 to 3 kw.
My other bike has one and runs 6kw peak and i have done 1500 miles on it with no issues.

Re: Mini Cyclone on carbon full suspension

After altering the reduction on my L.R. Big Block kit i have discovered that a high prm drive does actually wear less than a lower powered kit.
My original AFT kit eats chains way quicker.
So it would appear there is something to this.

Re: LightningRods mid drive kit

I haven't heard of anyone trying this yet. It has promise. IMO the 11t end is pretty worthless but the 48t end is not. It would work great if you blocked the top three gears and used it as a five speed. 48t to 18t is still a wide range. 48 to 11 seems like a lot for even a long cage derailleur to d...

Re: LightningRods mid drive kit

Absolutely. My neighborhood is nothing but steep hills. 3000 + watts goes without saying. Cheekybloke is getting his Beast dialed in. He's getting some pretty exciting results from his 3 speed. The only question is whether we can get the same kind of results with an indexed "click" shifter. If usin...

Re: Light weight full suspension mountainbike build (finally

Awesome as usual mate, really hoping you put the power through the cranks on this build.
I agree the LHD is far easier and less work but using the rear cogs will be more economic with the restricted batt capacity.
PLus i want to do the same at some point.

Re: AFT mid drive build

Thanks for the link mate, i have noticed for the same journey i am using less capacity now but seeing higher usage numbers on C.A. and going quite a bit faster.
!st gear is 48t up front and 28t at rear and it does 28.4 mph as opposed to 19 mph at 12s .

Re: Cyclone 650w-1680W up to 60v @2100W without overheating

I am now running my 1680 watt cyclone motor at 18s and 40a, it does get warm quite quick but i have still not had a thermal cutout.
I am also going to be beta testing some new mods to the AFT version so it will be running at 20s and 70a with fan cooling.
