Re: Cycle Analyst Android App

I already have an Apple Developer account. AFAIK there isn't any licensing for using the bluetooth stack, but using the physical connectors there definitely is. https://mfi.apple.com/MFiWeb/getFAQ.action#1-1 . On a side note, here's an example of a prototype energy meter dashboard. I've been working...

Re: iCell...New Bluetooth / cellphone cell monitor

Are there other Bluetooth data loggers?

I've got a background in IOS development and always looking for new projects...

Bit interface to the cycle analyst would be cool :)

Re: Project Interceptor, oil cooled Q100H@48V, in-frame batt

Very nice indeed.

Are the batteries easily removable from the frame or is it welded shut after insertion?

Re: Windturbine: 6X More Efficient and Much Cheaper

Couple of thoughts when looking at this. it seems like there should be a bit of a lip going into the turbine. - if air was moving fast enough wouldn't this direct more into the turbine itself vs going around the edges? Also mounting a Vertical axis wind turbine (or prop one) on top of the structure ...

That's really cool. Gotta say i think more people should be aware of e-bikes... but the government has to change their views on the stupid power limits.

Re: RiBMo tires are amazing

Me and my wife did a loaded pedal bike tour from Vancouver BC to Monterey CA on 26x1.25 Paselas, I only had three flats, all on the same morning. First was a tube change, second was a patch, the third flatted, I took it out, couldn't find the leak, put it back in and then rode another 1000Km on it....

Re: RiBMo tires are amazing

Still no flats. :shock: May not sound remarkable to some here, but I was having near-daily flats on the same bike, wheels, route, rider. They fall into turns so easily, you can ride very curvy paths no handed easily. Very small motions to turn with these. which bead did you use? steel or Aramid? (I...

Re: a123 32157 8ah pack builds?

osn sells fake dumpster garbage the a123 AHR32113 are not common because it's simply overpriced the 32157 cells dont even show up on the a123 website as an official product- maybe w9 can comment yes doing a bit of a pricing comparison i do agree. ~2x the cost of headway for a123s. The other thing i...

I always look around for the right distributor, i'm just interested in screw together packs, and looking at options at the moment. so far im thinking of: 16s2p AHR32113 pack 16s1p AHR32157 pack 16s1p headway 8 or 10 ah pack. But there appears to be almost no builds of a123...

Re: BiGH's Second Build Thread

Now i'm starting to look at battery packs again, a123 32157 look quite interesting... wonder if there are many builds using these.
