Re: More E-bikes found in NON-ebike media

They don't have to make a profit, they have to make headlines so that dumb investors give them some money. Then after a while they have a stock market IPO and skip town.

This is the very first google result for "cyclone motor measurements". It's accurate.

Re: Help with buying Chinese made electric motorcycle

Yes, you can't just order some vehicles from a manufacturer somewhere on the other side of the world and expect to be able to go to the DMV with it. Before a new car or motorcycle can be used it has to be approved. This costs tens of thousands of dollars minimum, because you're expected to prove it ...

Re: How To Wire a 12V Brake Light and Turn Signals

People are overthinking this too much. https://i.postimg.cc/wTZLgZgN/brake-lamp.png All we are doing is closing two circuits, the cutoff and the lamp, by one control input. No need to do sketchy stuff with the ebrake cutoff signal, or mixed voltages, or series connecting loads with relay coils (this...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

Other than that it's happened in an extremely short amount of time, it's just normal wear. The bike chain still measures up as being brand new. I can only guess that it's just a very soft metal, which is surprising because it's a proper shimano part.

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

So after finally getting a replacement half link chain here in the netherlands, where nobody sells them, I've put my motor kit back together and it's still slipping under even light acceleration. If your old chain was worn and elongated, then the chain in turn wore out your sprockets. Worn sprocket...

So after finally getting a replacement half link chain here in the netherlands, where nobody sells them, I've put my motor kit back together and it's still slipping under even light acceleration. I can't figure it out. At first I thought the chain was worn out, because it broke when I took it off. B...

Re: Uber Eats Delivery Ebike build

I'm doing deliveroo in the netherlands right now. Same basic deal. A killer is how long it takes to kill the motor, the lights, lock it up, then reverse the process after getting an order.

A serious kickstand is important too.

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

That's depressing. A box from taiwan with a motor in it is one thing, but I don't want to be picking up an entire frame from the post office.

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

Makes me wonder then what's grabbing all their attention. I picked a cyclone because it's entirely function rather than form, it's simple and doesn't try to hide anything. I was expecting it to become like what happened with those soviet two strokes places like sick bike parts sell, for it to start ...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

That's a pain. Someone really needs to offer a cyclone kit kit. Basically a replacement for everything except the motor.

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

Any word on who's selling better motor mounts for the 3000 at the moment? Google brings me threads here for ones no longer sold, Luna doesn't have any in (and don't reply to questions about it)... I used to think the standard mounts were fine, got used to seeing them twist a little bit. But I've bee...

Dont take this the wrong way, but aesthetics are not this forums strong point huh?
I only really care if it drives good or not. If it rides fine and the weird noises aren't serious then it's all good.
