Re: Controller settings...

Re: Vee Chicane Tires - Load capability?

You may have to switch it up and go to a smaller motorcycle/moped rim with suitable tire of your requirements. A 1.40 wide rim is easily purchased, along with a 1.60 width rim, and once you get into the 3.00" wide tire, lots available for purchase. Not sure what a 19" x 3.00+ setup is diameter wise....

Re: DIY vs. Commercial: How/ Why(not)?

Not sure about OP self promo comment. OP seems genuine to me. Literally that was "the author", which could mean the OP but more likely referred to the previous post, an ad for TSDZ2 controller software. Advertising in a forum. If you probably know ads aren't appropriate, but you don't care and put ...

Re: DIY vs. Commercial: How/ Why(not)?

Havent read the thread, just a few counter points to whats been said. DIY kits - Sellers sell same motor as 250W and 500W and 750W so they can sell same motor to scared Britons (250W) and scared Americans (500W), Canadians 750W. Not sure about OP self promo comment.

Re: Converting a beach cruiser with front wheel motor.

I built a Bikes Direct Nexus three-speed cruiser with ebikeling 1200w front motor (ebikeling is excellent IMO) and 52V rear rack Luna battery. Fun ride on a bike capable of 33 or so mph. Biggest problem, which you'll also encounter, is braking. The rear coaster is adequate as long as you're able to...

Re: Voilamart 1500W Internal Controller and Amps

- You have to go through the trouble shooting process methodically. Check to see if the wires are in tip top shape on motor axle exit. If direct drive, spin the wheel and see if there is a "clicking" type drag, means phase wires are touching or winding wire. Disconnect motor from controller. Inspec...

Re: Wooden sticks

You will never know how the motor is built unless someone already opened it up and pictured it in some forum somewhere.

Re: Converting a beach cruiser with front wheel motor.

Geared rear hub, means the rear dropouts are narrower and you have to spread the rear dropouts for motor to fit. Going front motor fixes that problem. Coaster brakes creates problems, when going rear hub, but your going front. You can do 500W or 1000W front hub, and be sure to install torque arms on...

Re: Trouble With the Car You're Still driving?

Nice Find

I bet them in India could forge that piece for you for a measly $1.25 in a couple hours, big money for them.


Well we will see how long it takes for a $40 product to get to you.

Re: Cheapest high torque fast bike?

Batteries are expensive, its as simple as that.

Now, do you want to cheap out on some mystery dangerous basement built battery off ebay or amazon and save some coin, or do you want to know for a fact you have a properly built battery, built by a reputable company or person, or do you want to gamble?

Buy a USED brand name bicycle, like a Trek, Rocky Mountain, Specialized, Kona in a 26" wheel size. You can find them in the online classifieds and pawn shops. There would be plenty of selection for a used brand name bicycle for 300 quid. Get a corresponding ebike kit in said bicycle wheel size. Put ...
