Re: Repairs Upgrades and more

The front fender has been loose for weeks now. The expanding plastic piece that slides up into the fork is a joke. 20200123_215030.jpg Drilled some holes in the fender brackets , grabbed a bolt, and blue loctite. 20200123_212552.jpg 20200123_212600.jpg 20200123_221040.jpg 20200123_221107.jpg

Re: Charge bike with gasoline generator While driving?

common sense is to do what every other criminal does, 5-10 over the limit.

Re: Mounting Cube Battery to Rear Rack and Basket for Deliveries

Make your own bicycle rack for both the front and back. You can get a cheap welder from Harbor Freight for $100, but its not necessary because just using bolts will hold up. I would use a combination of attachements from using the frame holes firstly, then using T-bolt clamps with some rubber pieces...

Re: gorilla glue epoxy/hall sensor

ive had a blown hall sensor for awhile. went to my shelf and all I have is gorilla epoxy, will that work for the hall sensor? Any epoxy should stand up to heat. Bubble gum could work, as it dries up nicely. Instant Glue might be able to stand up to heat. Plumbers putty. Doing it right, epoxy! https...

Re: Charge bike with gasoline generator While driving?

A 500W generator located on a rear child carrying trailer, easy to do. The genie would spit out enough amps at 120V to get you a 5-8A charge rate from a dc charger. I looked into it. 500W/120V=4.5A from the genie, look at the battery chargers input voltage and amps to see if it will work. My dell ch...

Re: Specialized Levo vs BBSHD

The ONLY positive aspect of store bought ebikes like the Levo, is the fact that the battery is blended into the frame and is unrecognizable to most people that its an ebike. Disregard the fact that there is a big bubble at the cranks bb where the motor is, most people wont look there and its hidden ...

Very crazy for ebikes, just to charge at ev station? You might as well buy a motorcycle, gas or electric dont matter.
Charging a bicycle at a EV charging parking stall will raise too many eyebrows.

Re: Big mistake I guess

You could do a split battery pack, get two 84v3a chargers and charge up the battery in half the time, if the C-rating is healthy. I have a 36V 27Ah split into halves, using Dell chargers of 20.50V and 8A, cheap $10-$15 Dell laptop chargers. So I only get 41.00V out of 42.00V. I could use a step up c...

That is lethal voltage levels there, which is alright for a major manufacturer like Tesla, but for hobbyists would be scary.
