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...

If you are getting new tires after winter get Continental Ride Cruiser ETRTO

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.

Re: Luna Cycles Apex has production problems

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. This explains why they are so hyped about the suron its the most pe built so requires the least work. I am pretty sure you can find the ...

To that amount, add the cost of a basic motor kit and battery, plus some more for integrating all these things...

Not sure why you're calling it an R Martin, but what makes you think there'd be a problem. I'm sure there will be red tape paperwork hoops to jump through, but EFun scooters have been sold in the US and operated as plated motor vehicles for over a decade. In fact, the picture of then CA governor Ar...
