Re: Mongoose/ Dyno CX24 200 Build

Did you get the forks sorted out? Is the steerer tube of sufficient length to fit the frame and have enough left for the headset?

Re: Mongoose/ Dyno CX24 200 Build

Seat looks like it's a great improvement, I'll be looking for something similar for mine. The forks you got look much sturdier that the originals too. I'll be watching to see your reaction once you get the motor installed and are riding it, my guess is you are going to get a big grin on your face. I...

Re: Mongoose CX24V450 with 2500 watt L-R Small Block

No I have not done any mods to the bike lately, just riding it a lot and also pedaling a Mountain Bike on various trails a ton as well this summer. Looks like putting a longer shock on is totally doable and should get you a bit more seat height, appears one would not cause any clearance problems ei...

Re: Mongoose CX24V450 with 2500 watt L-R Small Block

I should also mention the Em3ev 52v 16.5ah battery in the rectangle case just happens to be a darned near perfect fit for the frame, I've been lagging on getting a bracket made for it as it is perfectly fine with a couple of Scuba straps and Velcro straps holding it, Em3ev's case is really thick and...

Re: Mongoose CX24V450 with 2500 watt L-R Small Block

They list the width of that motor at 87.5mm +/- 2mm. The small block on Kelly's bike is 78mm wide. Kelly, how much space is there between your right side motor case and the pedal chain? It's close. It measures out at about 10mm between the bolts on the right side motor case and the pedal chain. Bui...

Re: Mongoose CX 450 Builds

I'm 5' 10 tall are these bikes worth considering? I like the look of them but just wondering if it would be worth it due to their size? I would say at your height the frame size is going to seem pretty small for you. I'm 5'8" and by changing to a 26" fork and 24" front wheel it's working real well ...

That's a Tuchel connector, commonly used as an audio connector. Cannon is just one of the many manufacturers of that type.

Re: A2B Metro restoration / modification - Fechter's first Ebike

So if you just plug a 120v 20w bulb into the output plug it will fool the BMS into balancing? Any do and don't on this for Idiot me to avoid when doing this? Thanks.

Re: Single or Dual batteries for Bafang BBSHD?

Skip the 2 24v battery thing and get one of these, with a 52v battery you'll get a bit more top end with the BBSHD. I have a couple of these batteries and get good range 20-30 miles off of one at a time, I pedal a lot too and can ride for a couple hours usually on the 13.5 amp hour battery. Your ran...

Gorilla tape is sticky but I found if it sits in the direct sun on a hot day the sticky stuff kind of turns to soup, had a few problems with that, it really absorbs heat cause it’s black.

Good advice there from Dogman, the Townie Cruisers are solid frames, readily available, will last for a long time, I'd feel confident about putting a fair bit of weight on one. If you got one set up to go 30mph you'll feel like you're scooting right along. Trust me faster than that on a bicycle gets...

Re: Need help with first e bike build using trike.

That type of trike is safe to ride at about 10 mph as long as you don't make any turns whatsoever. If you want a trike that can handle speeds above slow safely you want something with low center of gravity, there is a reason guys on this forum build "Tadpole" trikes with motors on them, they are act...

Re: It's now Spring 2018.. Why haven't e-bikes gotten cheaper?

Rewiring the motor so it can be unplugged sounds super easy...Hell I rewire all my hubs to use Anderson power pole connectors. I mean for all your technical bike skills not developing skills with technology long as you been here is pretty bad. Changing connectors and cable management is noob stuff....
