Re: My E-Scooter Upgrade Project

Scooterdude, will you measure your alloy rim diameter for me please? I think after all the info you have given me I compared apples to oranges. My schwinn stealth stock tires are 12.5 X 3.0 and my rim measures 8 inches in diameter. I don't think the 90/90-10 Michelin S1 will fit my rim after all. Bu...

Re: My E-Scooter Upgrade Project

Gotcha, I went back and looked again through your thread at the pictures you included, its all there. What a great build. Thanks again for sharing it. Did you ever look into going belt drive instead of chain? Just curious if you weighed out the pros and cons of both systems. That KART #219 chain dri...

Re: My E-Scooter Upgrade Project

I forgot to ask you regarding the brakes i listed above, the listing above is only for the caliper for sale on eBay. Was yours a complete set including the brake levers, master cylinder, and brake line? Or did you piece it together? Caliper from here, levers master cylinder and lines from somewhere ...

Re: My E-Scooter Upgrade Project

Ok thanks for the tire info I am placing an order those now as well as the hydro brakes. What rotor did you attach to the stock rims and the new rims? Was it the same rotary for both? I think you said 160mm rotor? Thx

Re: My E-Scooter Upgrade Project

Right on thanks again for the info on the brakes. Could you please clarify for me about the tires. My Schwinn Stealth s1000 scooter have the stock tire size on them 12.5 X 3.0 and I believe you and E.G. both had the same stock size tire. I know you both purchased new rims and if I read correctly the...

Re: First post: Schwinn stealth S1000 mods

I am really not looking for the high speeds, more of a solid 20 to 30 mph, good hill climber, sleek, stealthy looking dependable machine. as for the platform I think it is a great frame to upgrade with its solid crow molly steal tubing construction, front and rear disk brakes, good ground clearance ...

I thought id start this tread to see if maybe by chance someone had a brainthrust of an idea to take these to the next level or two since ElictricGod and a few others have had some very nice builds. Reading their threads has got m...

Re: My E-Scooter Upgrade Project

Great thread. Your still on the Michelin 90/90-10 tire? Also I never could figure out what brakes you and E.G. were talking about and what set you finally installed. I have trouble viewing the photos cuz I don't have photo bucket. I want to thank you for sharing your build I have learned alot from y...

Great thread for a scooter build and very nice work. I have learned a great deal for my upcoming conversion of three Schwinn Stealth 1000w scooters with all original parts still working great. But out with the old tech and in with the new goods. Would you have any suggestions for my particular scoot...
