Re: Stealth FUTR owners builds and pics

Hi Lash, I am talking about the length between the rear axle and the bottom bracket axle. I am fairly sure that this was done by stealth to provide anti wheelie characteristics when running high power levels. When the mxus was on there at 6kw there was never any problem to lift the front wheel and s...

Re: Stealth FUTR owners builds and pics

Looking very sweet PRW. +1 here, that bike is going to be something special IMO :D I took my alpha out for a nice long ride today, managed to cover 53km over 3h 20m with total elevation gain of 984m. On board was my 20ah 12s multistar pack with 50v at the start and 46v at the end with sag of about ...

Re: Stealth FUTR owners builds and pics

Wow nice work on getting a BBSHD in there Ian. that will be great to get your thoughts on the ride improvement without the heavy hub. Yeah Hyena - there is straight steerer option ;-) I know straight steerers are hard to come by, so thought i'd let the group know. I don't have it on a bike yet - on...

Motor is now Bafang bbshd I cut my bb shell down from 100-80mm to make it fit. Installed a sunrace 11-40 8spd cassette and shimano shifter. Next jobs...

Re: Stealth FUTR owners builds and pics

Just a heads up for those in Australia especially - these forks could be a good option for your FUTR BETA https://www.cyclingdeal.com.au/buy/x-fusion-vengeance-hlr-coil-bicycle-fork-27.5-trav/OT-FK-XF-PP I just picked up a set, and they look and feel impressive.

Re: Stealth FUTR owners builds and pics

Lash, that looks nice. Yeah it could be debris mostly though when it happens its after hitting high speed bumps and ruts etc. As for shifters I'm using a crappy shimano 7spd click shifter on the right but it's a pain to use because it's too far inboard to allow clearance for the domino throttle. I m...

Re: Stealth FUTR owners builds and pics

Sweet ride Ian. Chain drops suck, I have experienced that my self on occasion. It really sucked when I was climbing a steep hill and needed the pedal assist. Hey Rix, cheers yeah I'm still loving this bike and now I've got some time to ride and enjoy it. Chain drops do suck that's for sure and they...

Re: Stealth FUTR owners builds and pics

I took my alpha out for a ride yesterday, all was good except a bit of trouble with chain drops. Had to stop about 4 or 5 times to put the chain back on? All up though great fun. The battery in this bike is 6 x 6s 10ah multi star packs connected 18s 20ah. I did a balance charge before I left and one...

Hi CD, I would try a short piece of aluminium angle with a hole cut in to accept the clip and fix to the frame with a couple of m5 screws.

Re: Q100H axle problem

If you warm up the hub with a hot air gun until it's just about too hot to touch, it'll come apart much easier. d8veh, tru dat, as soon as I did that it was easy to get the cover to unscrew and from there on the rest was easy to do. I ended up having to screw a piece of wood to the disc mount to fi...

Re: Q100H axle problem

Those torque arms look like they cost more than the motor :lol: No just the BMS battery TAs for $15 a pair which look pretty decent although I wouldn't trust them on a high powered build. I ordered 2 pairs and they were out of stock but it showed in stock on the website. They waited for them to com...

Re: Q100H axle problem

Cyborg and motomech, thanks guys that's what I was hoping that it was just an assembly error. Makes me wonder how that motor passed the quality check, might be a Friday motor :lol:
I will open up the motor soon, hopefully this is the only problem with this motor :roll:

Q100H axle problem

I ordered some motors and other stuff from BMS Battery including a q100h rear hub motor and I discovered a problem with the q100h axle. The problem is with the axle flats not being aligned so that when one side is in the frame dropout the other side is about 45 degrees out and will not fit at all. I...

I have a couple of pairs of 12mm torque arms coming with my order from BMS battery which I think are designed to work with hose clamps but I would prefer to use a solid steel clamp if possible. I think you...

Hey no offence meant there nutspecial. Cool I really want to see how you set up your front end as I am trying to decide whether to go rigid or not when I'm running a front motor. I am still waiting for my parts to arrive, once I have the motor I can order the spokes and get the front wheel drive goi...

Re: 2WD PHATGOOSE

Hi nuts, I know this was a budget build for you and you were also aiming for simplicity/reliability so I get the reason you went for dd hub motors. I thought about the 2wd with dd hubs and fat tires for a while and basically realised that maybe the front wheel only needed a smaller motor to give the...

Re: Bike plans 4 summer

Cool bro! I really think the 2wd thing is a great way to balance out hub motors and obviously give best traction. You should share specifcs on how that pas works with 2 motors 2 controls.

Re: A thing for fatties

The gum hardness does a lot on hard surfaces. Hard gum need low PSI to grip, but at some point you just can't go lower for the terrain and start to get pinch flats. Soft gum does need a heavier tire construction, that can be ridden very low PSI, but their grip is not PSI dependant as much as hard g...
