Re: LMX P2 : Freeride trials motorcycle frame development

That kind of accident is the reason why we only use thumb trottles. That a great tip. I would eventually love to have a loaner bike set up that way. I think I would have a hard time getting used to a thumb throttle. Swtching back and forth from the motocross gasser to the ebikes. I also flip my bra...

Re: LMX P2 : Freeride trials motorcycle frame development



First time doing a video, so not sure it will work.

It's fun to see friends try ebikes for the first time. Most underestimate the touque and power...no matter how much pre-ride training you do.

My LMX is done. I am planning on doing a build thread one of these days.

Re: Tangent Build...V10...Astro 3220

Notice that HV series from Castle are rated 12s, so that using a 14s pack is risky, even with precautions...plus the 18650 have more intrinsic sag/ripple than lipos....At 160A with an 8p pack, you are at 20A per cell....probably I would go for a 12s-13s but 10p pack or even more. Remember to keep t...

Re: Tangent Build...V10...Astro 3220

The esc that blew was a castle creations 120. I was using a luna cycle 25r pack 14s8p. I have now switched the esc to a to a talon120...much better with heat/surface area and was able to heat sink it to the custom mounting bracket (thanks Dave!). I also built a custom battery pack with 30q cells in ...

Re: Tangent Build...V10...Astro 3220

What kind of top speed are you seeing? I have hit 65kph. I am currently not geared for speed...i only use the road for short rides to the trails. I am sure the 3220 is capable of much more. I'm waiting keen for performance and reliability reports about your build, This is the part I am struggling w...

Re: Tangent Build...Niner wfo...Astro 3215

I think my failure is due to the increased rpm of a 20:1...as well as the connex link That creates a slight bump as it passes the roller. I'm a fan of a solid roller solution. Ideally I will find a way to put the red DMR on a lathe and grid off the inside lip to allow the chain to align properly. Ot...

Re: Tangent Build...Niner wfo...Astro 3215

Dave,
I think that's the one. It looks like it will hold the chain closer to the bracket. The red one is great, but I am not happy that the chain alignment is a bit off.

Re: Tangent Build...Niner wfo...Astro 3215

My chain tension-er failed on my second ride. Likely due to the 3220 motor and the high rpm 20:1. It spins the chain quite a bit faster than my old setup. I'm experiment with alternatives. Currently I am using a derailleur wheel. So far so good but it doesn't inspire much confidence. Next is this wh...

Now with the 3220. Definitely a cleaner sound. Mic next to throttle.

Sound comparison.

This one is the Tangent 20:1 with 3215 motor.

Re: Dave's 80:1 RC mid drive kit build log

I just want to ask. Which rear hubs you guys use? I have pathetic 500W bosch middrive and i just cannot find hub /142x12/ which can hold torque. I keep stripping pawls in freehub. /third this season/ I have 42t sprocket on rear - so torque is proportionally larger and im heavy but even so... Which ...

Re: Tangent Build...Niner wfo...Astro 3215

Thanks for the comments Macribs. One of these days I will take some video. The ESC is just a newer castle creations, similar to the hv Dave uses. They only make a 120amp max version of the Talon, but it looks like it dissipates heat better. All the programing is done in the CA. Email Dave for all of...

Re: Tangent Build...Niner wfo...Astro 3215

Update to the ride. Frame is now a v10. 3220 motor. 20:1 reduction drive. Talon controller. I took my first real ride today..Initial thoughts; -the most quiet setup to date, even more than the 20:1 with 3215 combo...likely since I'm running at lower motor rpm. -increased torque. This really helps wi...

Re: Tangent Build...Niner wfo...Astro 3215

Took the 20:1 reduction unit on it's first ride today. I don't have the gearing dialed in perfect yet, but here are my first impressions. -10-20% more usable power. -less shifting of gears. There were big portions of the ride where stayed in one gear. -20-30% reduction in noise. Plus a better tone t...

Re: ADEN-Sports, Power Kit Race (Review+Pictures)

I sure will. Just took it on it's first ride today. A lot to still dial in, especially getting the controller (adaptto to run smoothly). Also using a 52v pack from another project till I can build a proper pack at 72v. So far it's tons of fun!

Re: Adaptto Mini-E/Max-E Owner's Thread

Have you tried to add more then 5ml ferrofluid? Maybe you are a little below sweetspot for the QS motor? Just thinking out loud here, but could it be that the QS needs more FF then the mxus? wider stator etc. Good point....guess it would hurt to throw the rest in there for 10cc total. It is one big...
