Re: Vector Light Commuter Build

hi.

what bottom bracket would you use if you wanted to use 53t chainring?
needs to be larger than the usual or it will hit the frame.

Re: BC 168 balance charger

the cells are all 3.77v and it shows like the picture, doesn't read some cells and the others are reading wrong values.
the input voltage was 15.2v, was that to much?
nothing smells or looks burnt.

Re: Using cars to get rid of wind resistance

it really does work... until you hit a pothole and have a flat tire, break a rim, or worse have a crash.
i'v tried it many times and had many flat tires and a broken rim, most of the time is not worth it

it would be a nice upgrade, this one is not round enough, turning the crank i could feel it putting pressure on the motor freewheel

Re: cyclone&cannondale

the 1680w kit is not that bad.
most of the problems i had were after this piece of crap chainring, the teeth are ok , but its not perfectly round.
wanted to reduce weight and improve performance, the result was several failures

Re: cyclone&cannondale

the motor can cut the controller if you have a thermistor to send the motor temperature information to the controler.
i dont have that on mine, it happened the other day going downhill at 79,5 kph = 49,5 mph
it may not be the motor, the controller can overheat if you ride it in high rpm.
