Re: Trying to identify this e-bike

Try to blend in as much as possible to your surroundings, meaning when your on pathways meant for walking, running and bicycles then anything that sticks out will get attention. Get something that is a bicycle, even if its an old rusted out p.o.s. if it looks like a bicycle then you are golden :thumb:

Re: Lower back pain and bikes

Doing whatever works is a good idea, as long as you know the posture is good. Perhaps a bike fitment session is in order, not sure where you'd go for one as the bike fitments I've seen on the boobutube seem scientific. Never seen no fitment dohicky in no bicycle store.

Re: $14.99 72v Sunwin Controller

Nice, how did you mount the hall sensros, any other pics? I don't recall anyone having the schematic for these boards. I am sure their your basic layout. It would be too much work to reverse engineer the pcb board. Some tried to see if the TX and RX pcb points were operational, but not sure if that ...

Re: Love the Baserunner, suggested improvements

I know for the Phaserunner (up to 90V + 45Acont) you can install it onto an aluminum heat sink to help cool it. Perhaps you can do the same with the Baserunner (60V + 35Acont).

Re: Is there any genuine FS XC ebikes?

Second, make sure your pedals are being installed correctly and tightened.
They were installed correctly, as for tightened to the proper ft-lbs well I do not have a torque wrench.

Get any tubular chromoly BMX crank. It's probably easier to use one with a 19mm single than any other size. Get a 19mm "Euro" bottom bracket for it. Thanks mate, will do!
