Re: Mongoose Blackcomb

You probably not gonna like it, but I tell you that I use these Chinese VESCs at 75% max. I blew my first at set-up (it was not good right from the get go) and had my second one running for three years. Of course my build is much lower power so.. If comes to the dead man switch, I asked around and g...

Re: FLIPSKY new 20s 100A tiny controller (vesc based)

Thank you for looking into it. I'm sure that Trampa people will do all they can to shut it down. They charge a lot for what they sell and they don't want competition. Once you make some progress, I can PayPal you some money. I'm only good with mechanics, so I'm not much help. :bigthumb: Why don't y...

[UK is not in EU and implemented the same regulations. OK, so which regulation exactly are you talking about.

Re: How to secure the battery to the bike

I bought all my bikes used and cheap with plenty of mileage on them. People get tired of bikes before they get worn out For obvious reasons I almost exclusively use the silver Giant I build. Thousands of miles including a trip around Japan and no problems. I ride it on type of trails you would never...

Re: How to secure the battery to the bike

If your goal is to squeezy maximum performance (read speed) out of what you have and feel every pebble on the road with your ass go for it. I have an old criterium Cannondale road bike. It's very fast and it's hanging on the wall of my garage and collects dust for the last 20 years. There's a whole...

Re: How to secure the battery to the bike

Anything over 20 mph full suspension is the only way to go. I recommend a hobby motor and VESC. You can now push a small motor up to 5 kW.

Maybe it's just my lack of comprehension but I do not see any intelligible specific posts from you outlining your objections even reading back a hundred posts.

But never mind if it's too much work, I won't call you lazy...

It might be more helpful to specify exactly what you are skeptical about

rather than just giving a general sneer

I wonder what the four bolt pattern is on that freewheel 2.0 and if it can be used on other mid-drive setups? How does it attach to the crank arms?
It's 104 BCD and yes it can be used that way. Unfortunately this freewheel is kind of wide and this can be a problem.

That is not a mid-drive and probably weighs a ton.

Re: FLIPSKY new 20s 100A tiny controller (vesc based)

Even if it is "just" 18 or 16S it would be perfect for my e-bike. There is nothing close for $99. It is actually very small.
Only 3 3/8 X 2 X 1 3/8.
