Re: TrustFire 14500 900mAh - trust or not?

i've used trustfire 14500's for flashlights and they're ok. trustfire is a just wrapper. the base cell inside was probably made by by an OK chinese factory like DLG, BAK or whatever. or maybe not. but the ones i've used were ok

Re: New build, BHT mid-drive "direct", custom frame

Make sure the seam is facing to the rear so it will be closed in by the frame tubes that will be welded to it. And join those tubes left and right together with small plates. Great build. Keep going and updating this thread 8) yes that was the plan. we don't want it to split in front and lose the f...

Re: New build, BHT mid-drive "direct", custom frame

Nice i have almost that exact same piece of tubing, its the first step to the thought of building my own frame. You started on a swing first which is a pretty good idea. I would likely get the front done then the back wouldn't adapt nice progress! watching closely https://i.imgur.com/3ueF4RM.jpg it...

Re: New old stock brand 18650, does it really matter?

25R is supposed to be an NCA cell so calendar life should be good. i have several dozen panasonic NCR 2900's (NCA chemistry) from 8years ago that are still performing almost like new.

do a discharge graph to see if they're still performing like new:

Re: Yet another BBS02 build, BeOne Nirvana 2.0

Looks really neat - how far can you go on a full charge? So is that right the BBS02 would be the best option for a full suspension; lightweight e-bike, floating typ of e-bike in comparison to all the hub-drive bikes out there? I really want to get an e-bike or build one myself; I am living in Germa...

haha yeah it's too late for me to change my leverage ratio :lol: my swingarm has more leverage on the shock than yours so i might need a harder spring: https://em3ev.com/shop/dnm-burner-rcp3-spring/?currency=USD BTW when you sit on your bike what % of sag do you get at the rear shock? i'm actually a...

Re: OpenEMoto

very nice project!

your BOM links to a DNM shock w/ 550 pound spring. is it too soft for your build? i'm curious because i'll be using a 550 pound also, but 220mm

check out the Rockshox Domain dual-crown. these have steel stanchions. should be quite tough

This build is looking really good! I would like to try a motorcycle rear hub for my OpenEmoto project. ( https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=92563&hilit=openemoto ).

Swingarm looking strong and solid. I also like the design. How is the drag (or cogging) of the drive compared to a hubmotor? Do you plan to use regen? tbh i haven't even ridden a hub motor :lol: so i have no idea yes i'm planning to get something w/ regen even just to save the brake pads. that's an...

Hi Overclocker,

I just wanted to confirm: which website did you buy the BHT motor from?
https://www.e-bike-diffusion.com

but i'm not sure if it's still available

Re: New build, BHT mid-drive "direct", custom frame

Cool project! I'm a big fan of frames with lots of steel tube fabrication. Hope the rest of the frame looks like the swingarm so far. You could add a plate on the other side of the thin slotted motor mount area. Drill holes the same as your motor mount bolt pattern and use set-screws to set the cha...

i'm getting concerned about the strength of my motor mounting plate. it's 2.8mm mild steel. you think it'll hold up?
