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.

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...
