Re: The Ciclotron on KS

Just watching them ride that bike was cringeworthy. It seemed that bike was all over the road. I understand that not everyone rides a paceline or has the ability to ride on rollers, but my 2 YO rides her balance bike in a straighter line.

Hoverboards have been banned from entering the NYC subway, due to fire risk. You cant even carry it into the station.

Re: 5000W motor on Aliexpress

DSC_0809.JPG I think that 20s will be my minimum target, while 22s10p is my goal, and 23s is my maximum with a 96V cut off on the controller. I have a rather large frame, I think I should be able to accommodate 230 cells, samsung 25r's. Let's hope my wallet agrees. I have my controller mounted behi...

Re: 5000W motor on Aliexpress

Thanks for chiming in Doug, I was going to text you today on the status of the MXUS3k. I am just trying to get a handle on some options. I really like the MXUS motor, I was just unsure if the pricing which led me to aliexpress. I can get a controller from Lyen for 199-299, and I'm assuming, based on...

Re: 5000W motor on Aliexpress

What is your current motor/controller/battery setup? If you just want a few more mph, then you might could just up the voltage a little and get it with an add on pack. That would also increase your range a little. Most 48V 1000W DD kits will happily do ~35 mph on 14s rc lipo without a problem. I am...

Re: 5000W motor on Aliexpress

30-35 mph is just about where I want to be. From everything that I have read, running your gear at 80% will prolong the life greatly. While this kit is capable of 50mph, I don't plan on using full throttle...... too often. I am currently running a MXUX 1.2kW on 48V, which was great for my 26 mile co...

Re: Three Bears Ride 8/2/2015

What a great ride it was. Took the tire to my local bike shop in Benicia, getting a replacement under warranty. After only 75ish miles the bead had just separated from the tire. Looking forward to the next ride, I think I will bring the trailer and little one. Thanks again for organizing this Alan, ...
