Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

How's the colour in person ? Is it powdercoat or anodizing ? It looks fairly thin in the pics but I guess it's hard to tell. In the pedal kit tutorial video posted ages back the swing arm and main frame are a different colour which looked pretty average. As for the battery charging thing, as I alway...

Ah crap man! Don't you hate those innocent looking silly crashes that bring you unstuck. Thumbs up for good protective gear, but as you've found it won't stop blunt force trauma!

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Incredible it was so well matched with a 450, was he giving it everything the 450 had? These are no where near a 450 in any aspect - at least not for general use. The only place you'd keep or up is on a tight twisty track where the 450 can't get the power down. I rode my surron and a ktm 450 back t...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Next will be a 52 tooth and I will do 22 pcs. 52t could be the pick of the bunch I reckon. Talking to Adam he hasn't measured the top speed with the 58t yet but he said it's quite noticeably less. It sounds like it could leave the top end a little too light on for general riding, which I don't thin...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

the RST's are $50 more from the factory I'm still not sure how this adds up. I dont know what the forks cost from fastace but I do know how much the RSTs are wholesale. And I know that what surron charges for a set of the fastace as a replacement spare part is twice the wholesale price of the RSTs....

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

The RST is a pretty budget fork and claiming they're a premium product is a bit rich. I looked into buying these to package with the FUTR frames a few years back but ended up going with DNM, even though they were a little bit more expensive. DNM aren't the bees knees of suspension, and for the price...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Do not attempt to add air pressure to the forks without reading the manual first, you may do a Hyena. :roll: In my defense, they were already leaking otherwise I wouldn't have touched them :P It could be that having the forks ratchet strapped down for shipping is putting too much pressure on the se...

Just a heads up for those in Australia especially - these forks could be a good option for your FUTR BETA https://www.cyclingdeal.com.au/buy/x-fusion-vengeance-hlr-coil-bicycle-fork-27.5-trav/OT-FK-XF-PP I just picked up a set, and they look and feel impressive.

it has the power to handle any kind of terrain.
Except it has zoom forks, so you'd best not take it off more than a tapered gutter :lol:

I was told that they changed from air to spring, due to the spring version having less maintenence. Ask Hyena about this! :lol: Yeah I'll be able to compare them back to back soon. I've had trouble with mine losing air pressure. At first I thought I was getting too adventurous when I started hittin...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

My kids have a bike the same size as that one, different brand and originally lower power but I hotted it up to give it some more poke. Naturally! My eldest (9) has outgrown it now and I'm looking at 65cc size bikes for him. Surron should add a smaller bike to their line up! Something with 12" wheel...

Re: Pot on controller shunt?

Yeah i played around trying to switch shunts about 10 years ago and it didn't go well. The full current of the controller goes through them so it melted the switch contacts in short order. As above you can fiddle a resistor in some of them but in this day and age just use the controller programming ...

Try talking to Hyena here on ES.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

you point to the Fastace/MX forks having better suspension travel? Anything else? Actually I think it has slightly less suspension travel, but it's air adjustable so you just pump it up a bit of you want. I haven't ridden both immediately back to back so I'll let Adam weigh on on this one as he has...

Nice work CD. I was going to ask for a side on shot as I was scrolling through the thread but I see it now. I hereby dub the bike "Kim" - for that is a ridiculously out of proportion fat ass! :lol:

Oh and yes I recognise the trail. That's what, the 4th alpha that's bombed down it now ? :)

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Besides the steering angle advantage of the Fastace, and weight differences between the two forks, where would each fork type best shine, would you say? Interesting some of you prefer the RST, I think the fastace is the way to go. One of the first things I noticed about this bike was how much bette...

Chilly ride Alex! Have they changed the headlight or did you fit that ? Mine had a plastic case unit with a twist back to turn it on/off. Yours looks like cast metal ? That was one of the things I found cheap/tacky looking on the bike so if they're coming like this from the factory now that's anothe...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

I dont know how many of you guys have ridden 450s but they're worlds apart from the surron and not really even fair comparing. They have an absolute shit-tonne more power and the only reason the surron comes close in the tight stuff is because they can't put the power down. That's actually the main ...
