Re: 60V 2500W Cyclone Fat Tire eBike 3.4 kWH 16s1p

done deal! fat tires are a different ride, I have 3.0s on a non fat frame.. just barely Vey nice bike for 1,000 bucks... "prettier" bikes with that performance are like.... 4,000 and up or something the range makes it sweet :bigthumb: I will show you my charger so you don't have to charge so slowly...

Re: 72V 3000W Cyclone Electric and Gas Generator Build (SBP kit) - Three Phase Dev

Thanks for the response. I have been stalking your youtube videos. How do you keep the speed under 20 - 30mph? Discipline? gearing or other? Also feel free to share who sells those kind of batteries. Most of my my scooter packs are ok.. but I'm ready for better. well, the new bike is a fat tire so ...

Re: My First eBike - I'm Overwhelmed..

How is their shipping time? Ship time isn't great, at least to europe. I asked for air shipping quote instead of ground, they said $80 extra but it wouldn't be any faster, do I still want it. :lol: which one are you looking at? the second one is a geared motor with nice lcd display and a ~1kwH batt...

Re: My First eBike - I'm Overwhelmed..

Bicycles are designed to cruise at 20 mph. They're good at it. And it's generally quiet and comfortable in that range, where you don't have to have laser focus on the strip of pavement ahead of you. I find that the longer I mess with e-bikes, the more I gravitate towards that speed, even when my bi...

Re: 72V 3000W Cyclone Electric and Gas Generator Build (SBP kit) - Three Phase Dev

A for effort with the generator. I had scooter packs with the cyclone for a while at 72 Volts too. How are your scooter packs hanging in there? Also, have you had issues with the cyclone breaking anything? Nope, I found the Cyclone to be very reliable though I only go mid 20s cruising and mid 30s t...

Re: Salvagable or too dangerous - Shorted Lipo Pack with Small Vent Hole

Its a LiFePo pack from LG Chem, which goes into many EVs. People make DIY powerwalls with this that are literally fastened to a flammable wall. A pure LiPo pack is dangerous I agree but this isnt that. I sealed it back up with hot glue and then taped it but the packaging of the cell pouch is comprom...

Salvagable or too dangerous - Shorted Lipo Pack with Small Vent Hole

Sigh, so I frocked up. The crap electrical tape I used to insulate between terminals of my 4s pack somehow came loose and shorted with another cell in the pack. So, it actually was slightly smoking before I was able to pry apart the short. But, the result is one of the packs has a small hole where i...

Big boy battery time. 16s1p LG Chem N2.1 3.6V 60Ah separated into four 4s1p 60A BMS series back into 60V to fit into Dolomite Fat Tire bike frame. Previously, dodgy low price (cheap) scooter batteries 16 36V 4.4 Ah packs wired into series to produce 72V and low amps like 10A per pack. These LG Chem ...

It is cooling down now but just a week ago it was like upper 80s to lower 90s and sunny. Things baked in the sun. I am finishing a fat tire 3.4kwH build atm and need to make a battery box.

Re: Battery questions - Higher Nominal Voltage and Series Balancing...

yeh, its a 3kWh pack. I am going to do two 7s1p in series to make 52V nominal. I will attach a 100A power meter to each pack and detach the series connection and parallel them to balance the packs (>0.75V). As you mention, I doubt they get out of balance but just in case I will monitor them. I know ...

Hey, I bought 16x 3.6V 60aH LG cells. Originally, I wanted to do a 60V (57.6V) ebike so I can hit mid, upper 30s for top speed. Then, I found it is hard to find different PAS level ebike kits in this COVID-19 era for 60V fat tire ebike and 60V is just not a popular ebike voltage. I also want to even...

Re: Looking for input on my first Ebike build and questions about battery range/usage

Again any input is appreciated. - Your kit has variable PAS so you can set it at level 1 which is like 50W I think and that will basically make the bike frictionless and remove the small resistance from the direct gearless hub - You need to tell us your desired speed and range for battery size; its...

Re: Powerful e-bike commuter/runaround for hilly area

Yeah tbh I'm leaning heavily towards a mondrake summum as had confirmation that the pack should fit under the downtube - not keen on above top tube due to weight distribution, or you think having 3.5kg on the top tube won't feel that different? with that bike, the weight would be minimal difference...

Re: Powerful e-bike commuter/runaround for hilly area

seems good. that small battery you can mount on top tube. i know people dont like it but im fine with it; it looks like a motor bike for me. also, of course you need disc brakes at those speeds.
