Re: 0 feedback ebayers keep bidding on my e dirt bike?

Feebay sucks for small volume, occasional sellers. They cant hide that.

Re: 0 feedback ebayers keep bidding on my e dirt bike?

Somewhere deep in the feebay settings you can stipulate the minimum number of feedbacks someone must have to bid or buy from you. I've been hit by competitors too with that same scam. What they do is make multiple throwaway accounts that are rarely or ever used. Recently I got a buyer with just 2 tr...

Re: Charging a 13s pack

One more thing to keep in mind. Charging thru the balance wires is doable but the limiting factor there is the thin wires themselves. Unless you decide to forgoe the typical JST-xh connectors and went with something like a molex connector and thicker wires. I'm not very familiar with balance lead on...

Re: Charging a 13s pack

If you could possibly manage to go 12s that would open up a few more options in terms of balance chargers. Unfortunately a charger that also balances up to 16s is rather expensive. https://www.buddyrc.com/products/isdt-x16-dual-channel-2200w-20a-16s-uav-ac-dc-battery-charger I think your best bet is...

Re: (Sold) A123 26650 lifepo4 cells ONLY $1!

I don’t see an option to close the thread. No “x” available. usps don’t ship lithium cells period. FedEx u just need a sticker and I think maybe double wrapped in some instances.

Those have got to be the most disgusting solar panels I've ever seen. But hey, 465 watts is 465 watts. I'm sure you got a good deal on those. Impressive skillset you have there.

Re: what is it about a bmx bike that some people dont understand?

That top tube... They are getting more common nowadays. I wonder why such a weakening structural design did succeed to find a niche in the bike market. I'd be more concerned with that single sided fork. As for the frame it is Cannondale so I suspect they know what they're doing. Have you heard any ...

Would a BMX-based Longtail cargobike with 20-inch wheels be a "donkey"?
That would never catch on. Gotta think of something clever, like calling it a Hooligan.

Re: what is it about a bmx bike that some people dont understand?

Trunk sized transportation is great, it gets you the last few miles when commuting into a city. No need to muck about waiting on buses and trains. BMX bikes fit the bill perfectly. Except for the seats but we can work on that. https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2...

BMX is awesome. All the haters can take a romantic leap towards a pastry with a hole in the center while its in motion. :mrgreen: Having said that there are several sizes of BMX to choose from if you dont like the geometry involved in 20 inch wheels. There are setups available in 12", 24",...

Re: kWeld -

Wouldn't you get more oomph high power bursts from a LI battery pack? Nothing oomphs quite like supercaps. They can dump 100s of amps without issue and they can last up to 250,000 cycles. Not so sure about their calendar life though, I think its 20 years or more. Lithium packs are certainly up to t...

Welcome to EndlessSphere, Bikeyboi. Wow did you delete your thread over on 4 chins or did the mods do it? They're a bit overbearing IMHO. The cheeky way to get more speed out of that ride would be to swap out the rear wheel and hub motor entirely with one thats got a slightly higher kv rating. Kv is...
