Re: Super 73 power upgrade

doubt it went great from advice given not being great. I didn't see this post but that was terrible advice. The super 73 uses a fatbike 170mm rear axle so a hub motor designd for fat bikes would have worked. Ebikeling 1500w fatbike hub motor kit and a 52 volt battery would have worked great. leaf bi...

Every dirt bike build here required welding. The suron is a starter light electric dirt bike. Lets stop comparing it to t to e bikes for 1 it's meant for trails. I can't take my 2000+watt hub motor ebike on the trails a suron can handle. The suron can't ride around in streets as freely as my ebike. ...

Sorry, could not understand your question clearly, could you explain? If the 2000w motor gets asi4000 controllers tuned for it will that work with the 3000w motor.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I find the bike crazy fast, especially with a 60t sprocket. Oh but this bike is ASI powered 72v You went 107 kph using a 60T sprocket and 72V? wow. That's a huge difference. Normally, the 60T would only go about 60 kph on 60V, right? Also, 6.6s 0-60 mph run is pretty damn good too! 66 mph is in lin...

Re: Leaf / leafmotor / leafbike high efficiency 1500w motor

If you're going to build a 1500w+ motor wheel, i'd consider 14 gauge butted sapim spokes ( which flange out to 13 gauge diameter for extra strength ) to be a bare minimum. May be inadequate for 2kw+ or large wheels like 29ers. A lot of people have had issues running standard bike spokes on powerful...

Seriously they survived over 4k miles before I put my winter tires on at speeds up to 37 mph up hill and 27mph uphill. Actually there is so little wear I am considering just using them again next season. https://www.amazon.com/Continental-Cruiser-ETRTO-50-559-REFLEX/dp/B07238VZ46/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_pro...

Someone put maxxis hookworms on a fatbike over on endless sphere so that has me wondering if you can just use Plus bikes tires on a fat bike. Use studded fatbike tires in winter and hookworms all the other times.

Its almost like they can only afford to buy one shipment of expensive bikes from china at a time so thus production slows down to a halt when one bike is sold out.

A basic bike with 7 speed rear shifting that's just good enough to not be a disgrace costs a little under $400 where I work. I'm actually surprised it's still possible to sell it that low. To that amount, add the cost of a basic motor kit and battery, plus some more for integrating all these things...
