Re: Back after so many years ! Need your guidance on my project

thanks a lot for the explanation. It's very nice of you ! it helps me to move in my understanding journey I've noticed something that I would like to share with you. I still have the Super73 SG1 from my friend; which is 250W and I have a stronger acceleration, or with less pedaling I can get more to...

Re: Back after so many years ! Need your guidance on my project

thanks both. I don't get your point on BB7 as to me brakes are a full kit component. When I look at all the feedback on the Magura 5, it seems be better than what I have right and it seems a direct fit on my buzzraw https://fasterbikes.eu/en/365/magura-mt5e-hydraulic-disc-brake-for-bafang what do. y...

Re: Back after so many years ! Need your guidance on my project

hey folks, a quick update and guidance request. I'm actually using classic disc brake Tektron and I would like to upgrade that to a better standard. I'm wondering which I should go for ? Shimano or Tektron Mineral ? it seems the brakes don't have two wires as an output but just one; so I need to tak...

Re: Back after so many years ! Need your guidance on my project

thanks Battosaii - Yeah markz, that was also an option but I had this flash opportunity to get something which on the paper is already very decent and it's a great ride. I've managed to access to the Bafang programming menu (password was 1919) and added some PAS (from 5 to 9). So now, the more I ped...

Re: Back after so many years ! Need your guidance on my project

I'm the new owner of this Buzzraw X 750. I have to admit that it's a blast to ride with the full suspension. I like also the simplicity of the bike but I've also to acknowledge that mechanics is not my favorite hobby! Just to adress a little noise from the brakes is not enjoyable but I'll learn that...

Re: Back after so many years ! Need your guidance on my project

I'm sad. This morning I sold my eTrike. A father with his kid came and bought it. I know it's a good thing because I can pull the trigger on the Coast Cycle Buzzraw more easily.... but it's such a crazy feeling to have a beautiful and fun toy going out of your way. I enjoyed every minute with this t...

Re: Back after so many years ! Need your guidance on my project

thanks MadRhino, so for you... it would be a good opportunity right? especially at this price tag; with the invoice etc.. I just need to acknowledge that if there is an issue on the Bafang, I'll need to manage that myself. The upgrade capabilities are also something great and 2500 euros price tag is...

Re: Back after so many years ! Need your guidance on my project

Re: Back after so many years ! Need your guidance on my project

yes exactly. I would love to ride it but I don't live in a house, so it's very painful to move it. I'm going to sell it for 750 euros and add a 12S8AH pack to the game. I hope this is gonna sell so I can start purchasing what is gonna be my next electric bike.

Re: Back after so many years ! Need your guidance on my project

got it. thanks, it was about free wheel. So, maybe worth selling for a bit less the eTrike and get a proper bike from scratch with a Bafang pedal assist under steroids ?

Re: Back after so many years ! Need your guidance on my project

thanks folks ! This is the Etrike and the Magic Pie. I didn't managed to put some photos before because it was held in my storage but it's taking some space due to the etrike inherent size. I may be a bit stupid but what is the difference between a front hub or rear hub magic pie? My dream would be ...

yes, exactly - I was looking on google image, then YouTube and found it. https://www.cloudsto.com/ebikes/kirbebike-vapour/kirbebike-vapour-full-suspension-emtb-detail.html this seem to be pretty sick and will probably blast the Super73 easily but that's a lot of money. There is also the possibility ...

Re: Back after so many years ! Need your guidance on my project

thanks a lot guys for helping me on my thinking. Big up to you mark, goatman and madrhino In fact if I had the ability to do the Super73 RX myself, I would go for it. It's not rocket science, but I don't have the frame. Of course, I will not have any app, but I don't care. I can make myself the batt...

Re: Back after so many years ! Need your guidance on my project

thanks a lot Mike. It reminds me when I joined ES years ago. I had an Evolve board which was a late delivery and in the meanwhile, I decided to go DIY and learn how to build and teach people to build electric boards ! Seems I'm heading that way again. My big challenge is that the actual Magic Pie 5 ...

Re: Back after so many years ! Need your guidance on my project

hey markz, thanks a lot for the message and feedback. Hey MadRhino, thanks a lot mate too ! In fact, the Super73 is allowed in Paris as it's seen as a bicycle. The off-road kit will give more power but you can still ride at 25km/h which is OK from a regulatory standpoint. Most of the time, with the ...

Hi folks, It's been a while. For me, everything started here 6 years ago on Electric Skateboarding. I'm asking for some support or guidance or just tell me: no your project is dumb ! In fact, I ordered a Super73 RX eBike as I wanted something ready to ride with a cool design. Unfortunately it has be...

Re: ITSBEENAWHILE BUILD - 12S - BUSTIN MISSION 36 DUAL REAR

I should be getting the 18650 cells today; so I will weld the pack and see how this goes. Regarding the finish, my plans are either to leave the box as it is... or apply 2K epoxy primer... Just don't know yet, as the epoxy primer may remove some details (especially the logo)... well I'll figure this...

great job man. I wish I could try some but manufacturing/prototyping in France is just like... ultra expensive! I wish I had some soldering skills/background.

Re: ITSBEENAWHILE BUILD - 12S - BUSTIN MISSION 36 DUAL REAR

Hey Silvia, It's a ZYYX+ 3D Printer, the printing area is quite good but not 42cm to print it in one go. I am also printing it as blocks so I can modify the enclosure progressively. The enclosure I went for is like 15cmx41cmx2,4cm as I am going for dual vesc, bms, antispark... so I may refine the en...

hey, I'm continuing to build. Here's an update. I am now going for a 10S build. Will weld the 18650 Sony VTC5A. Did the enclosure design and started to print it while improving it. http://www.e-sk8.fr/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/IMG_7567.jpg http://www.e-sk8.fr/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/...
