Re: qs 1000w builds

Hi Guys, this motor looks great. I'm look for a replacement for my cyclone 3000. I'm running it at 72v and am having overheating problems. This motor looks much better built. I wondered if someone could confirm the weight. The spec sheets suggest around 7kg which seems a bit much? Do you think it a...

Re: Simple top speed question guys.

Using the map my ride app I’ve reached 38 mph going downhill on this retro modern kinda board track racer. It’s long and heavy, good for speed. 27.5 inch Schwalbe supermoto x 2.4” Tires that are 2.75” on 50mm rim at 30psi. It’s has 6 6s multistar 16ah batteries, 3 in series, so I’m running 72 (75 st...

Re: My new stealth type build

I’d trim your seat post. I know it won’t hit as is just looks funny. It’s non stealth with the logos and graphics and color scheme. I know this is a personal preference, just not for me. Otherwise great ride!

Re: Where to find Super73 style ebike frame?

AliExpress, like eBay, Amazon etc should always be considered.

Here you go...
Also there are several USA manufacturers still making the old school mini bike kits, raw steel, no motor.

Re: Custom frame for Cyclone Coaxial

Re: Custom frame for Cyclone Coaxial

I can see the dual set up working well with the chains on both sides. The pulley on left side looks like it uses the “five holes” as it’s called referring to freewheel mounting. So a five holes to 104bcd adaptor would work? Cyclone and sick bike parts sells this part. Anyone to try to convert or con...

Re: Bikee 1000W 1.6kg mid-motor Opinions?

It looks physically small for the stated size at 750-1000w. Overly proprietary In design with built in controller could leave you in their hands if there’s a issue down the road. I’d let the people who have purchased it be your test as to what’s to come for this little motor. It’s specifications may...

Re: How good is Cyclone 4kw coaxial suspension bike?

Anyone have the dimensions of the motor? I have a custom frame design in my head that I want to sense check. Dimensions are on the cyclone website. It’s 180 mm in length that’s 32 mm longer than the normal 3000 w version. Dia of both motors is 136 mm. Both have 95mm between the bolt holes for mount...

Re: E-Bike improvement vlog?

Nice looking! I’d would skip the front 250w motor/wheel. Even with it you will find it probably isn’t enough to make a big difference. Two times little power is still little power. Also the front one more powerful than the rear could cause traction and control issues. I would replace the rear one to...

It’s going to be hard to beat the sur-Ron for an electric dirt bike. But it could be to much for you or to big of a jump, for now, don’t know your situation. Off the shelf or a kit? Can it be more pedal bike and less motorcycle? If you do a build try to set a budget. One sample of mine is three grou...

Re: Anyone Tried These 80A Controllers?

I did not know these problems existed. Would not be good to have any. This is so cheap you may have to just try it. I’m seeing this controller, or similar on AliExpress and 3000 W motors with throttle for eBike kits for $250 shipped and several positive reviews. I’d put it on the maybe/consider list.

You can’t use pla for Ebike printed parts. I will soften in the sun, the melting point Is too low Use PETG if you can at a higher print temp like 245c vs 220 for the pla.
