Re: Qulbix Q76R Frame Kits & Complete Bikes PRE-ORDER

The only way I was able to deal with chain slap and got rid of it was using the Shimano zee rear derailleur. This has a clutch system and works great. It eliminated almost all slap and the chain was completely silent. If you don't use a clutch system it will slap around. The other issue is using a 1...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

You can get this new headset, assuming that is what you are referring to. They have all the right sized parts for a 1 1/8 straight steerer. If your DVO emerald is tapered then you will have to get something different. https://lunacycle.com/cane-creek-forty-sur-ron-headset-bearing/ Yep, thanks the e...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Ride it? Yeah best would be to ride it. Funny question because I wanted to discharge my other ebike and didn't want to ride it so I turned on the LED front light. I left it on for hours, and it got pretty hot the light, starting voltage 69 and when I went to check it 6 hours later the voltage was s...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Would anyone know, if you unplug your charger during a charge.

Is it better to unplug the AC plug first or DC connector first?

I assume one will spark less?

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I would only build something if I was improving on the design, so that is different. This is why I upgraded the brakes, throttle, and fork on my Sur-Ron and will get a new controller. This is really just changing already built parts. I mean building something like a frame or modifying a frame, build...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

The way I feel is I don't want to build something that can be purchased. If you think about it, the reason humans have such wealth is we mass produce things at extreme efficiency. For example if you had to build your own car from scratch, you would spend probably 10-20 years building it. You could a...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I don't see why anyone would convert a 250 KTM when they can get that. Because people can find a steal of a deal on used bikes - particularly if it needs a new engine. If one manages to get a bike for a steal - then converting it to electric can cost perhaps half of what a KTM Freeride costs. Used ...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Can't say I completely agree. There are plenty of folks converting bad ass 250's etc., to electric, often with 30KW of power. Since all they are doing is dropping in a motor, controller and battery - the build can be better than the original bike. And I have to say KTM doesn't exactly make junk. :w...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Nice, the bike is unbreakable, except for the bash guard. The deal is the Sur-Ron takes all that fun we had building our past ebikes away, but I don't miss that anymore. There is absolutely no reason anymore to build ebikes for the most part, you will never match the quality of the Sur-Ron. Of cours...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

They have a new version of the Sur-Ron coming out? Hopefully they get rid of the 26" fork and build it around a 27.5"fork. Maybe design the swingarm to fit a belt drive without cutting anything. Other than that it will be interesting what they update from the old Sur-Ron. I personally have no issues...

This is why I don't worry about police in NYC. Imagine one of them asking me to stop to confiscate my bike and rape me with tickets. That's amazing. In LA, the cops would be shooting.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

The camera works very well, even on the bumpy stairs. I suppose there's a chance the video could be used against you if you were at fault. Does it have an instant delete everything button?

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Is there a similar Sur-Ron replacement 70/100 - 19" tire that you can buy in the USA. The tire would need to be 2 ply and not 4 ply.

Yes I would install the Shimano saint brakes and get a fox 40 float 26" fork, the ludicrous bike will really earn its name. Unfortunately they discontinued the fox 40 float 26". Unrelated but I had to fix a flat on this bike and it was extremely easy to get the tire off. I remember someone else comm...

Re: Nucular Electronics owner's thread (setup infos, FW updates, links etc.)

I would personally just run the cells to 6s or 4s jst xh connectors and use a cell checker every so often to make sure everything is balanced. I ran one of my bikes for almost 2 years without any BMS. While I guess you are taking a chance with this it should be no problem until you get your Nucular ...

The brake levers are way more comfortable also and easier to cover with one finger all the time while...

Please try to not misinform ppl here if you are not sure about the facts.

I used my temp gun to check the temps of the exterior of the Sur-Ron motor. With the motor hot I am reading 55c max temps. I would have thought it would have been hotter. 55C definitely feels burning to my hand but I believe these motors can easily see temps like 130C at the magnets. My question to ...

That sucks, I know the feeling when stuff breaks. Actually, other than the cheap skid plate they used which I had to use a hammer to knock back down today, my bike has been holding up for the most part through lots of abuse. The brakes are not great but they didn't break on me. I upgraded the brakes...
