Re: Perth Build #2 - FUTR Beta

Had a bit of a win tonight. So the Infineon Controller comes with yellow HIGO plugs for the ebrakes, and the Maguras MT5e (closers) came with red HIGO plugs. With help from my 72 yo dad, we have found the +5v supply (red) and and determined that the controller allows for a permanent power cut on 1 w...

Re: Stealth FUTR owners builds and pics

Finished just today - ebike #2. Well nearly. The seat is from an Electra Cruiser which became ebike #1 and will need to be changed eventually. It has no chain or tensioner yet, nor rubber grommets on the holes I added on the battery cover. I used a dremel to enlarge a couple other holes too so the ...

Re: Stealth FUTR owners builds and pics

Gotta question. You drilled into the side cover and put the charge port there Perth. How do you remove the side panels now? The side panel was pre drilled actually - it came like that. All I’ve done is mount an XLR chassis plug to the panel which has a short pigtail and a pair of Anderson’s, which ...

Re: Perth Build #2 - FUTR Beta

Mostly finished. Chainless but rideable and can’t wait to ride it to work tomorrow. Finishing touches like rubber grommets and ebrake switches (cancel cruise) still be done, as well as shortening the brake cables which are all tied up at the front. I’ve made the rear wheel easier to remove by adding...

Re: magura mt5e higo bbs02

Is this a done deal - Mt5es will not work as ecutoff where the controller (my Infineon) comes with yellow HIGO ?

Not the end of the world, but disappointing.

Re: Thread for new battery breakthrough PR releases

Question about cycles and their Zinc Air battery post above I commute on my ebike and use 15Ah out of my 17.7Ah pack every day. So I charge at night. Allowing for holidays, I work 48 weeks per year so that's 240 cycles pa. I'm expecting around 700-1000 cycles over the life of the battery before I lo...

Re: Samsung INR18650-29E C rate

That's why I asked. Else where on cell_mans site they are rated 3C max, another site rates them at 3C continuous. If they are even remotely close to the Tesla Panasonic batteries they should last two decades or so if you are careful with them. 2 decades ??? I cycle my batteries (30q cells daily) an...

Can you Identify this motor ?

I'm hoping someone can identify my motor. I think (am hoping) that this is a Mxus XF40 3000w motor ( from here https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=63142) which is rated for 3000W. I think it is the 16x4T winding because the motor simulator almost perfectly matches real world experi...

Re: Help with the Details

Thats fine. In reference to my mention of torque or power throttle, it's a special function of cycle analyst v3 and it's still for throttles- it sort of changes the 'mapping' of the throttle so the degree of twist can correlate to power rather than speed. Otherwise, 'speed' throttles are usually st...

Re: Beach Cruiser - powered by Hyena

The bike got another upgrade today - Thudbuster LT seatpost. Combined with the spring Brooks saddle it should be a plush ride. First commute tomorrow.

She's being used daily at the moment - 170km a week

New battery is enroute from EM3EV

Does anyone know what fork Vintage Electric Bikes are using on their Scrambler or Emory Outlaw tracker.

I've discovered they are using a Felt frame.

So I've discovered this is a Felt frame - maybe everyone knew this, but does anyone know what forks they are using ?

It's a bit nicer looking than my Electra Cruiser. Maybe I need a frame swap.

Re: Beach Cruiser - powered by Hyena

The bike got a major upgrade today. I got inspired to buid a battery box out of flattened pvc water pipe and aluminium.

I'm not very handy and it's a but rough in places but I'm chuffed at how it turned out.
