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...

Re: Sur ron x black edition

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.

Re: Kuberg Free Rider

This is on AliExpress right now. The frame is $490, the motor and controller is $460, both incl. shipping. Seems like a clone to me. Rear sprocket is different. Motor is smaller. Frame looks simpler in the under seat area. Clone or not seems like it’s too small. Unless you like that little wheel rid...

Re: Widewheel 2019 - rear motor "shuts off"

I have one and have had it apart. Mine had a non working front motor from new. I was sent two dead ones and the third worked. Seems unlikely to be the battery as it’s shared by both motor controllers so wouldn’t the problem affect both motors? The two motors and controllers use the round plugs so sw...

Re: 7 mile range on new fat-tire bike with Ultra. Am I doing something wrong?

We’re you riding off road? I’m guessing so. The fat tire will create a lot of rolling resistance and at low pressures even more. Pump up your tires to 30psi and ride on road only and see what happens to your speed and range.

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

Thanks for the update and info on amps and such. Are you running 72v? There has been some cyclone bashing, 3000w version mostly, but a low price point at first means a swap out when things break and wear out are cheaper. Twice the price for maybe better is a gamble. Thinking of this motor on a Honda...

You have to search the cyclone posts. This has been answered many times. If I knew I’d let you know but I know the information is there when I need it by searching. Pink wire and a paper clip is what I remember.

What thickness will you get your 219 sprocket? I’m thinking 4mm? 3/16” is nearing 5mm and tight. Metric chain metric thickness I’m thinking.

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

Would be nice to put the cyclone or similar motor inside the lower part of the battery case/box. The prices of the stealth bomber eBay knock off etc. frame have come down considerably. Still no taper headset and only small wheels are useable and it’s heavy.

Re: 27.5 plus mid drive

We’re you using 7- 9 speed chain? Can’t tell by the pictures what size your cassette is. I’ve had good luck so far with 9 speed chaIns and cassettes. Cyclone 3000 that does a steady 2800w continuous. I have bent over the large size gear on a 9 speed cassette before though.
