Re: REVIEW: 2 Years with Chinese Electric Bike Front and Rear Suspension FC-1 54V 1500W (RisunMotor)

You have to make sure the motor cable does not touch the rear discbrake on ebikes. Risun motor are the ones who sell Sabvoton controllers on ali express and alibaba. I have good business transactions with them in that regard.

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

What is wrong with using Topeak beam rack. I used it on my e-bike trip around island of Shikoku. It was good for about 40 pounds and I tested it with over 100 lbs. by sitting on it. I made over 800 miles with no problems. Once you have a rack you can attache a fender to it. The racks move side to s...

Re: Looking for a 60+ amp quality inexpensive motor controller, what happened to them?

Just get a sabvoton and program it down to 60 amps. Get the bluetooth programming adapter. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32871239603.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.7c527be7LA4y2e&algo_pvid=f82c9f6e-71f3-4411-b2b0-e6a6555a86a7&algo_expid=f82c9f6e-71f3-4411-b2b0-e6a6555a86a7-0&btsid=0ab6f8221597615...

I wouldn't want more power on a hard tail and I wouldn't even want to run the power you are running without a front suspension fork.

Re: Why no V-brakes on Fat Bikes?

Cars use disc brakes, motorcycles use disc brakes, dirt bikes use disc brakes. They use big heavy draggy disc brakes. Bicycles don't use those. They could, but they don't because then the bikes would suck. We are not about to perpetuate the chalo crap of rims being like a giant disc brake. Well, ri...

Re: Why no V-brakes on Fat Bikes?

Think of linear pull brakes aka V-brakes as having a 650mm inch rotor and not a measly 160mm or 205mm rotor. Yes 650mm is 26" which is the rim, now 29" is 730mm, how common is a 29" with V-brake sidewalls well lemme do a quick little check. Judging solely on the small rim pictures at Chain Reaction...

Re: Why no V-brakes on Fat Bikes?

Replacing crappy disc brake calipers is 10x easier than buying new rim brakes. My roadbike disc brake calipers were a joke. I got xteck dual piston closed hydraulic system cable actuated calipers for 40 bucks. Pedals, tires, and brakes I never factor in when buying a bike because I am going to repla...

Re: 500w Controller for 250w motor?

I wouldn't run a 500w hub motor up front. 350 watts is my upfront limit so the bike at least performs like a front wheel heavy all wheel drive bike long as you pedal heavily. I use a 1500W front hub motor and 48V/35A controller on both my e-bikes. They work fine, for me. I think how much power you ...

I test my rear lights and have the rear lights connected via usb to the sabvoton. I notice a short in the light strip and try to fix it. Doesen't wor...

Well after doing some more research I think I'm going to go with a cyclone 3000 kit (probably from Luna) with the stock controller initially.
