Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

O.K, Ive seen the hall sensor for sale on Luna and figured it was a wear item but had no idea what the hell it was or how to test/ replace it. There is not much info on the description. Could you please give me a dumbed down explanation of what it is and how to replace it? Y.T and Google can tell y...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Faulty motor hall sensors - they are a spare part. Easy enough to change out
Mine had similar symptoms.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

So what's your magic formula, which tires? It's all personal taste mate. There is no blanket "Best". Just the best thing for me. How do you like your ride to feel? Muted, planted, stuck to the ground. Or Lively and playful like a MTB? Planted - go the light Moto tyre option. Playful - find the stro...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I recently did the Moto Tyre experiment on the Surron. I read all the posts and recommendations. Agonised over my choice and pulled the trigger. First ride - "Fark this!" The good: The cornering grip was unbelievable. The bike was now a plough. Smash the chunkiest of terrain. magic carpet ride. The ...

Off-The-Shelf Ebike. Worth it?

Over the I've last decade, I've built a number of DIY e-bikes. Several Hub drives and 2 mid-drives. All in the 2 - 5 KW range, retrofitted to DH style bikes. They are all gone now as my Surron has been so awesome to get my e-fix on. I'm now thinking of something a bit more accepted by the wider comm...

So Dylan from NZ marketing just flicked me a brochure because I was asking questions on it's specs. While I'd like to post the entire brochure, i've just managed to include the spec relevant screenshots, minus about a dozen action shots of the bike that don't hold relevance, other than emotional.

Re: Neematic - 20kW middrive bike

I personally like it in it's Moto form. I know that this is an E-Bicycle forum and a lot of the appeal is being able to pedal past a cop at 25kph, then rip it when nobody is looking but I find that pedals just get in the way with performance off-road riding. I think that's what they're going for in ...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I've come across a used Fox 49 Factory (29er + boost fork) for good money. One of the upgrades I want to try is getting a 21" front wheel built up, wondering if anyone sees an issue with using the 29er fork IMO that front wheel / fork setup will give the Sur-Ron the proportions of a Pennyfarthing. ...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Service your brakes if there squealing.
Pads out. Brake cleaner.
Fully extend pistons. Clean and lube them. Replace rotors if there scored.
Worked a treat for me. They used to make horrible noises.

The bushings in the top of the fork are rooted, where the stanchions slide into the lowers. I just went through this with my RST's and upgraded the forks May they RIP.

RST Fork guys: I pulled apart the right hand fork leg containing the compression dampening mechanism.

no its not the other way around, the 48t sprocket actualy has a lower top speed that the 58 by about 7kph. i have seen this for myself. How are you measuring your speed?

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Stock BMS has 16 x 5mOhm surface mount resistors composing the shunt (0.31mOhm combined). We just doubled up each resistor and it's enough to get everything the OEM pack can deliver to a hotrod controller, and still has functional over voltage, under voltage, and over-temp protection. Soldering wor...
