Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Maybe 19S battery charged at 4.1v will work fine with stock X controller? That would be really cool Walking on the edge there. But hey, that's where the fun is. Have yourself a spare controller on hand so your bike isn't down for too long. I was personally underwhelmed doing voltage mods to the sto...

Re: DaVinci drives

Post some photo's ace. Davinci drive usually runs a RC speed controller. They require PWM signalling to make them turn the motor. Ebike throttle produces 0 - 5 volts so it needs to be converted to this PWM. That's where the black box comes in. Inside there should be a high voltage UBEC (check before...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Do you have a spec for the stock controller that shows it's max voltage? Or is this just trial and error. Pulled apart a couple of the stock controllers, gutting them to house the Nuclear controller. The capacitors are rated to 80V form memory. Didn't bother looking up the spec of the mosfets. Fell...

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

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.

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 ...

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 Pennyfarth...

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.
