Re: UBCO 2wd e-moped

This is not worth the money, maybe $3k you could build yourself a very nice one. Yeah... and over 2000USD would go towards the battery alone. This bike is 5.5k USD, not 8000USD. I would call that affordable with TWO quality Flux Drive motors; high quality, light frame; and warranty. Their 2018 mode...

Re: Australian helmet laws

Society/government wear the burden of additional medical costs when you do stack without a helmet though. Hospital stays/surgeons/MRI scans etc cost 10's of thousands which the government/tax payer needs to fork out if you do the wrong thing and injure yourself permanently. In Australia where we ha...

Re: Australian helmet laws

Not a fan of sentences with 'nanny state' in them. I am all for helmets being mandatory. Doesn't matter if it discourages people. I've slid about 10 metres once, and I don't want to risk a concussion from now on. I don't want to have lost productivity either, even with NZ's welfare. Ebikes should ov...

Sewing your own bag isn't that hard, but it takes time.
You know any places that could custom one?

Looking for rectangle cuboid, quality battery bag.

I am looking for a bag that fits where the original battery would go: https://electricbikesnz.com/2016/12/30/ ... rousel-858

What about holding a dolphin battery within the bag?

Actually, it probably is the best thing to do. The IGH can wait. Would this bike handle a 1000W eZee motor at the rear, with good torque arms of course?

Edit: I meant 1400W for short time climbing up big hills. I could always avoid those, though...

Re: Considering.

Consider installing a rigid steel fork with rack and fender eyelets to anchor the torque arms. Is this too overkill? https://em3ev.com/shop/dnm-usd-8-front-fork-black-latest-version-dual-disc/ Have you looked at the axle for that fork ? Yes. A front hub motor could certainly fit in there with some ...

Re: Considering.

It will screw up the geometry and handling of your bike, unless you shorten its travel to match the stock fork. And motor thrust will cause that fork to bind as well, though perhaps less if you shorten the travel and have more stanchion-slider overlap. Front hub motors work best with rigid forks. W...

This is my bike: http://www.apollobikes.com/bikes13/id/63/cid/81/parent/0/t/bikes13 More info can be found in the media tab too. Would the front of the bike, with two strong torque arms, take 1000W coming from a setup consisting of an eZee motor and 48V (especially at full charge) battery? I can't a...

Long-term reliability of BBS02vB.

What technical problems should someone expect when buying this product? Are these problems still worth it for commuting? I want to commute 20km round-trip every weekday to work. I have read people having noise and bearing problems after only a few thousand kilometres. Does the BBS02vB need a lot of ...

Getting a chain for BBS02.

I've ordered a new cassette for my bike.

http://www.wiggle.co.nz/shimano-cs-hg41 ... -cassette/

Will this chain be good for this cassette in combination with a 500W BBS02 using a Lekkie 42T Bling Ring?

EZee FWD effects on maneuverability & shock-absorbing forks.

Does anyone have experience with the eZee FWD? 300W continuous here in New Zealand. I want to commute, and change tubes and tires more easily. Is the mass enough to have negative effects on the shock forks? What about the low wattage? What about maneuvering through heavy traffic? Is it enough? Does ...
