Re: Hub motor axle does not go into dropouts

I got some torque plates laser cut from 8mm stainless steel for my MAC 10T on a GT transeo 4. I can post the design if you like. It cost me NZD45 to get the pair made. 8mm is too thick for the non drive side, I've had to run it with no washers or spacers, but 11,000km later the axle and dropouts are...

Re: Are Middrives Really Prone To Chain Derailment?

I've used this one very successfully, might be easier to fit around a BBS

Re: Best tire + rim combination for a heavy E-bike

I'm using Schwalbe Marathon Supreme 622-42 on an Alex DM24 for about 2500km so far on my ebike, no problems. sounds like the tyre is not seated right to me. After I inflate a tyre enough for the tube to fill the tyre, I go around the wheel and make sure that the tyre is even all the way around, the ...

Re: First build advice, commuter project

So, I went ahead with a MAC 10T, a 14s6p EM3EV small triangle and a S12SN 40A controller from BMS battery. Designed my own torque arms and had the cut from 8mm stainless steel. Nearly at the end of first part of the build so I thought I'd post up here. Currently looks something like this. http://i.i...

Re: worlds best mainstream unheard of factory ebike? ~$1500U

I have a bike with this motor, I think it's the same as in the flux bike. I've ridden 6000+km and it's been pretty ok. Mine is this config, slightly different stickers though. https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/electric-bike-bofeili-green-city-electric_60453450916.html?spm=a2700.7724838.0.0.eHSP...

Yeah, I think I will go back to the drawing board - ride this thing for another 4-5 months to build up some more fun budget and build what I really have in my head.

Re: First build advice, commuter project

Yesterdays project a nice bike to pedal. A 1970 mixte fame, 70's race wheels, stripped down to be an urban hipster ride. Very nice, will it get a motor? - this is my non electric project just completed 11178204_10155479060475494_2612711457670116753_n.jpg That looks like a good bike, but I can total...

Re: First build advice, commuter project

Actually, your existing ride looks damn nice to me. Haha, don't say that - I want a project! Hmm, find out if your current mid drive could handle 48v. If so, there's more like 1000w, and various components on the existing bike could be improved, like new brakes, wheels, forks, etc. Yeah, I thought ...

First build advice, commuter project

I've been riding a bofeili mid drive e-bike ( details here ) for a few months, have racked up about 2200km and I'm itching for a project. I use my bike to commute about 16km each way every day come rain, wind or whatever. I get an average speed (including lights, etc) of 27-31km/h and I'd like to go...
