Re: AVIAN featherweight mid drive

Today is the final stage of my project.
In a couple of hours I will be flying to Japan with my build.
Two bags contain my e-bike, camping gear and everything I need for one month biking and traveling in Japan.

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

So they are letting you fly with lithium batteries in a bike? I realise you can take bikes as checked luggage, but an ebike? didn't think so. Some more information would be awesome I think there are plenty of people who want to travel with their ebikes. Andy The regulations are not very clear. Theo...

How are you going to get that bike on the airplane?
Check in Ogio 9800. No extra charge. First class on Dreamliner. It's the only way to fly.

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

I built a drive for myself. In two days I will by flying with my set-up to Japan. I designed it for steep mountain roads and speed up to 50 kph, (surface road speed limit on island of Shikoku) reliability and efficiency. I'm confident that I will cover 1000 miles in two weeks time. I will be visitin...

Re: AVIAN featherweight mid drive

A LITTLE UPDATE. I'm two weeks away from my trips to Japan with my e-bike. The bike is still working fine and is ready to do about 1000 miles of mountainous terrain on island of Shikoku. I was working on a single wheel trailer with suspension. The final result was not good. Even though I reinforced ...

OK guys, I can make a new part and most likely more if needed. For the first user in the US who will send me a complete kit with broken part, I will do it for $100.

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

Just as the forum suggested, I did not check the torque on the crank arm bolts, and I lost one during a ride. Found the crank and pedal, but the bolt is long gone. Does anyone know what standard those crank arm bolts are? I tried one I had laying around and the threads were not right. I don't have ...

In China there is no way to tell what came first the egg or the chicken, unless it is a fake egg. These definitely come first and chickens are not part of the process. Check that out :shock: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvEBN8Jd5DE

Re: Small and big block rickshaw motors on Amazon.

Its a clone of the cyclone (Denzel D4500) motors. http://www.eastgem.net/d4500.html Chinese motors are all clones. With these motors it is impassible to tell which one is better because Chinese will cut corners every time they make something. Still for $100 with controller they might be worth the r...

Re: Small and big block rickshaw motors on Amazon.

Bigger than Cyclone 3kW and 2-4kW, with a lot less torque and a fraction of the power? What am I missing? Is the controller just a place holder for the real thing? Price and compactness. Both are very important for a light e-bike build. Now if you planning to build e-tractor Cyclone is a way to go....

Yes, you can take it all out. This is exactly the same motor that LR is selling for $250/$350 and that without a controller.
