Re: new eZip motor

Thank you. That makes sense. My savings for a car is not going well. Lucky if there is 100 left towards it by the time the 3rd of September rolls around. Paying 95 a month for storage 500 miles away hurts. I am paying for stuff I cant use and have no transportation to go there and haul it here. I do...

Re: new eZip motor

As the Hub Motor Turns and the LiPo Fire Burns. I probably wont ever stop building e bikes. Maybe just slow down. First off cars break down. I know I have been there and probably most of you all have broke down somewhere on the side of the road out in the middle of nowhere stranded. Not only can tha...

Re: new eZip motor

As the hub motor stops turning and the Lipo Fire stops burning. E bikes are cool. But the fact is they are not practical. They are a calamity in the rain or snow. Most do not carry a second passenger. They do not have a heater in the winter or AC in the summer. They are severely limited by battery t...

Re: new eZip motor

Thanks for posting. Good to hear from you. Those holes are all over the city. My shoulder is healing up. I went to get an MRI done and it is a rotator cuff tear as I suspected. I am going to the Ortho doc. tomorrow. I have been steering clear of that area where I got hurt as there is heavy traffic t...

Re: new eZip motor

I did not think it was a good idea to sue the city less than a week being here. The cops would all hate me and give me a hard time. I was only hoping the city could mark such dangerous spots to prevent someone else getting hurt. It is no fun flipping a bike and damaging a rotater cuff which was alre...

Re: new eZip motor

As the Hub Motor Turns and the LiPo Fire Burns. Wiped out again on the bike. Thought my shoulder was dislocated but just a contusion. Went to emergency room for x rays. Damage to rotater cuff. Will need MRI but tore that many times in the past lifting weights but not as bad. Moved about 53 miles fro...

Re: new eZip motor

I just went back and looked at the terminal blocks. I did not understand what they were about but after looking at the pictures I see the screws so now it makes some sense to me. I hope to get my storage here next month and order some new tips DA recommended so I can start soldering and shrink wrapp...

If or When I build a Death Bike with the FX - 75-5 motor I will take a hard long look at the Power poles as I will be dealing with voltage over 100 volts. For now though I feel tha...

Re: new eZip motor

Yea. I was going to order two of those packs but realize that on top of the 850 for rent and security to get in the trailer there is a deposit for gas and electric. They are two separate companies. I also will need to pay another months storage in NY. I wont have 300 bucks to haul all that stuff her...

Re: new eZip motor

If you could solder, you could make your own harness ...

Re: new eZip motor

Sounds good but I don't have money to switch over 6 or 7 controllers already wired with bullets. It would cost a fortune. I still do not have an apartment. I still don't have my storage. It will cost about 400 bucks to get my stuff from NY to here. about 100 for storage here and about 300 for gas to...

Re: new eZip motor

You do remember I tried pleading and begging with you to not cut all the XT60 connectors off your batteries? I foresaw all these battery problems and disasters and did warn you. Yes I do remember. You were right. I guess some people have to learn the hard way. Even the bullet plugs have plastic hol...

Re: new eZip motor

Gotta be careful with the blood pressure man. I got a good reading today. 128 over 55 , second time was 134 over 58 and third 128 over 55 again. I know that it is not all the medicine either. I have been a lot more physically active the last 6 weeks and am down to 228 pounds. Was 256 about a year o...

Re: new eZip motor

As the Hub Motor Turns and the LiPo Fire Burns. I have been taking longer trips lately probably 20 miles or a little more round trips. These packs are far from new as the SONA packs are over 3 years old I think and the Samsung defiantly greater than two probably close to three years old. Since I mad...

Re: new eZip motor

I checked voltage when I got to Super Walmart and was 38 volts. When I got back the voltage was 36.8 volts. I did heavy pedal assist. The bike trail was beautiful. I bought a rotisserie chicken fully cooked for less than 5 bucks and potato salad for dinner and the chicken was still warm when I got h...

Re: new eZip motor

It really hurt me when I hooked up those 4P LG packs negative and positive to the switch by accident. 1/2 or 2P may be salvageable as they appear to be undamaged but need to be tested and are close to 500 miles away in storage. The BMS on the one was totally fried. A lot of smoke and one of the 36 v...

Re: new eZip motor

I am in Ohio if anybody cares. A hotel in Canfield Ohio. A small town. The new build with the rear e bikeling hub motor was strapped down to the roof of a big Dodge van and was a 11 hour trip due to a lot of stops. Should have been less than 8 hours. I already saved on carbon emissions today as went...

Re: new eZip motor

As the Hub Motor Turns and the LG pack goes up in smoke. Much has happened in the last week or so with my e bike builds. I made a stupid mistake the other day hooking up my home built 4P 10S LG pack. I should have hard wired the positive wire going from the controller to the fuse going on to the swi...

Re: new eZip motor

Thanks. Easy stret and the new build , both with the 500 watt e bikeling motors are the two I could probably get 500 each for but nobody around here has any money. Not when the average 1 bedroom apartment is 800+ a month. The guy who rode the dual motor chain drive bike went and bought a gas powered...

Re: new eZip motor

Camera is in storage also so hopefully can film any results. Motor mounting will be tested and upgrades wil...

Re: new eZip motor

paid 650 for the month of April. No heat or hot water though. A cord from downstairs runs a small electric heater on low setting when needed , a TV and my laptop and eel tank. No shower for three weeks now and probably another three weeks at least. :roll: I was at storage and moving bikes around yes...
