Re: 3kw eBike Build Questions

Patent pending or going on sale soon. Dont matter either way, if it sells good it will be copied and knocked off. You hit the nail on the head. Obviously you understand how things work. Someone design and start production of a new product. After a while Chinese copy it with cutting all corners incl...

Re: 3kw eBike Build Questions

I designed it for a very specific reason and put a lot of thinking behind it. I will not go into details, but I will just say that without it I could not achieve my goal of flying to Japan with my build electric bike and tour island of Shikoku. I have this pack for two years now and it is still work...

Nice, would you be willing to upload the print files somewhere?
Do you have capability to make these type of parts?

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Buy a trials bike and if necesssary add a longride seat. It'll do things the Frey couldn't imagine doing and cost the same or less. I did buy a trials bike exactly for that reason - I found no offroad bike that is "ready to ride" and not "ready to race" so I thought a trials bik...

Re: 3kw eBike Build Questions

Thanks for the responses. I'm not looking at building a cheap way to get to uni. I'm living close enough that I can walk or ride a push bike, or yes a normal ebike. But I'm wanting to build a high power dual suspension bike, for many more uses then getting to uni. Something that I can replace my mo...

Re: My RC Mid Drive with Single Stage Reduction

Are all these builds without freewheels on a motor and a chainring? What is going on here? I put 30K miles on a mid-drive with no freewheeling cranks. It is awesome. Can I see your build please? 30K miles sound like a lot. Sure. Click on the link under this post. Thanks. :thumb: I will check it out.

Re: GNG / CYC X1 Pro 3000w

I have to agree, they are a level above everyone else especially from China. A level of service that is not that far from Tangent-Dave actually. They are smart enough to understand in a market as small as this they can't afford to make enemies. Rather take a loss on something for possibility of mak...

Wow, sweet setup! Running 12S or 14S lipo, depending on situation....... Wish I had a vertical milling machine or a lathe. For 12s you could use VESC 4.12 just fine. You might be able to use it at 14s, but not fully charged. This would make your battery last much longer. I'm waiting for a single UB...

Fried my CC HV80 on my 3210 Tangent today (got it wet while doing a snowy trail ride). Castle Creations HV80's are easy enough to come by by I understand Dave used a custom made shunt for it to work properly.

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

12mm thru-axles is a plus. Bidirectional hydraulic shifter can be more of a problem than solution. The time will tell. Cage system looks good at first. The devil is in the detail. In order for a GH to fit into a cage some slop is needed. Some kind of gap that allows it all to slide in. What will hap...
