Re: HPC Revolution frame price!

The EEB frame is well known and been used by many, even HPC makes a bike using that frame. 10lb is nothing in this class. We could debt it to the ends and all it would take is a person 10lbs heavier to prove it makes no difference.

Re: My EEB Commuter

I have seen videos of people taking apart the motor to put it in I am wondering about the pros and cons of these 2 ways?

Did you install the Ferro Fluid or was it in the motor already?

Re: My EEB Commuter

You can allows use a chain splitter and install a master link this way you do not need the tensioner.

Re: My EEB Commuter

Nice build! Question why the derailer, I thought the QS 205 H50 can only have one socket?

Re: Ebike Weight....

@Chalo, I hear you but comfort of pedaling can be addressed with adjustable seat post, (Reverb Seat Post) and also the right gearing. As far as legs rubbing that has to do with people's anatomy I have seen video of people pedaling all the different enduro frames and they are not rubbing their knees....

Re: Ebike Weight....

@Chalo,

Did you see my post? The pedals help in 2 great ways. Pedal from start to help motor/battery, the pedals are there in case you need to pedal home.

Maybe not ebike but rather moped which is kinda like an ebike ;-)

Re: Ebike Weight....

Some great reading here. I do stand with what I said, 10 pounds is not worth the 1000's it it will cost you to save it when buying your frame in this ebike enduro frame build category. The only thing that will make a build like this to be called an ebike is the peddles but then why put them on? Beca...

Re: My 60mph ebike build

So I have doing a lot of caluations on the kv/tire of the QS 205 H50. Cool simple math help you figure out possible speeds. My question is does higher kv tax the motor/battery/controller and if so what can be done to remedy a higher kv to achieve stability in that setup? Sent from my SM-N900T using ...

Re: Insurance limits motor output / theft prevention

I have decided that my build is going to be titled, licensed and insured like a eCycle and the frame I am using will have the controller/battery in closed compartment using star bit screws. Plus I am going to have a GPS location device on it. And I will have a heavy duty lock. I have seen controller...

Re: Ebike Weight....

The thing that gets me is 10 lbs can be saved in so many ways and I do not think 10 lbs will make any noticeable difference on ebikes in this category which in turn says to me to not care about the 10 lbs. Just think most people can lose 10 pounds with out really trying and it will save them weight ...

Ebike Weight....

I have done a lot of research on ebike weight expecially the steel/aluminum/carbon fiber heavy-duty enduro/stealth type frames that are made to hold the battery/controller and be stronger for the more powerful ebike build category. These frames range anywhere from 23-12 or so pound range but the cos...

Re: What lacing pattern do you use to lace spokes?

I have only built half a dozen wheels, all with stainless 13g spokes, no problems so far. I would never use the radial pattern, if the rim didn't like the spoke angle of 1x I would replace the rim with something that would work at 1x. On a front wheel normally I would use 3x but I have just put a 1...

There is no beating the system but rather you have choices, you can be a non thinker and just let the system guide you along, you can be a thinker and learn how the system works so you can live better with in it.

Good idea, I am sure someone does it here locally. I am just reading and researching everything so I have everything ready to go when I start the build.

Re: My 60mph ebike build

I will be going around to bike shops in town over the next week and I am hoping they will be able to point me to someone local that can lace hub motors. We will see, if not I will have to do it. Already found a great site to teach me how to lace a wheel. http://bruceteakle.blogspot.com.au/p/hub-moto...

So you should keep front at 17 also? Also where do you buy the moto rims/spokes?
