Re: What got you into electric?

Love biking but have chronic bad back issues and sprained ankle at the time.

Re: Klein Mantra Meets BHT!

I really like your build nutspecial! I wish it was easier solution to do something like yours. Seems like some custom work needs to be done and don't have access or skills to do it.

Hey, do u know how loud this compared to a cyclone?

Thanks again.

Re: Are Middrives Really Prone To Chain Derailment?

Haven't had a drop in awhile but like previous person, I have front derailleur that keeps it in check. You need something like this if you ride rough terrain. There are a lot of other cases for dropped chains though. Sometimes you can't get the chain line right because of the frame design or where m...

Re: LR Direct Drive Genesis

Something is not right. You should be getting way more than 2 miles. When I had false combo, it ran hot really fast. It was louder than should be also. The other thing with my readings being off on my CA was my shunt value was incorrect. Not sure if this helps.

I'd like to build the perfect trail bike...

Yeah, I found myself in same situation. I don't think there is perfect combo but it's getting there. Loudness was the biggest priority for me. If people can hear you from coming, it doesn't matter how stealth your bike looks. I had a cyclone before and was too loud. Tangent would be same or louder. ...

Re: LR Direct Drive Genesis

Yeah, never seen anyone take a chunk out of frame. I doubt it's safe. Like nut said, put one of the bats somewhere like the top tube. Seen plenty of people do that and then build enclosure around frame or just wrap it which is quick way to hide the bats and wiring. You can find 24 inch tires as unic...

If your drive train is always dirty, it will wear down quickly also. I try to clean especially after dirty ride.

Re: Dave's 80:1 RC mid drive kit build log

I think this drive is really sweet. I live how compact and simple it is. The one drawback I see is how loud it is. Although, some people say it's really loud and others don't. I guess that's a relative term. And some people like the noise. Ive had the cyclone with noise shroud from AFT. It was reall...
