Re: JP spot welder

I started using my welder and it seems I’m getting some weak welds... and they get a little stronger if I rotate the copper leads. Is my battery not strong enough? 530ca 425cca reserve capacity 75 (whatever that means) using .15 nickel at 26ms If I get a stronger battery would it help? Or do I have...

I’m gonna try and return it for a bigger one today. This may be the issue. What size battery are you using? I also ha...

The front is set up to have disc brakes. for the rear I will weld in disc break tabs as well. I don’t plan on keeping coaster break.... it’s looking more and more like I’m going to do a hub. Here is a basman frame with a mid drive.. I would do something similar but with lower slung battery. And I wo...

Re: Stretch cruiser Rat Rod Build. What Motor best for single speed?

What size battery you wanting to use? Place it on the bottom bar next to crank, or have a rear rack with old style saddle bags is my suggestion. You could even have a regular controller on the top of the rack, camoflauged well and go with any ole motor you wish. I'm thinking 48v (52v mighty mini cu...

Re: What wheels/rims are recommended for ebikes?

Thanks for the replies guys! The reason I can't go bigger then 2.55 is because of the monark II springer fork. A 3 inch tire rubs for sure with this fork. I'm looking up dx32 wheels now, no one local to me seems to carry any 26" disc wheel. Also is there any place online I can order a complete wheel...
