Re: Myths about tires (part 1)

Back in like 2010 I did a ton of road riding on a 26 inch mountain bike with ritchey speedmax beta semi slicks. Not the kind that are mostly slick with a little bit of channeling for water but the type with knobby outside And a sort of diamond pattern in the middle. They were 26 x 2.2 so pretty wide...

Re: Ride1up Core-5 brake upgrade to 203mm adapter help

i always use the concave/convex spacers that come with linear pull (v brake) pads, they work really well for this purpose. Then again i have hundreds of them kicking around bc i am a bike mechanic and hoarder by trade

Re: Is there a "best" cheapo ebike build kit?

That wheel you posted with the roller brake mount is interesting. Looks like the rim has good potential for braking but won't it be all sorts of odd because of the spacing for the roller brake? trying to figure out how it would center in the forks or if i would have to dish it almost like a rear wh...

Re: Is there a "best" cheapo ebike build kit?

Just buy the $40 rental hubs, a $30 controller, $5 throttle and figure out your battery. Didn't know I could get a wheel that cheaply. If this is just the hub, I don't know that it would save all that much once I buy a rim, spokes, and nipples, though. But maybe it would still. Hmm... The surplus J...

Re: These 250W ebikes (toys) are very popular

Better yet, I'll just wrap the hub with a zillion turns of duct tape for the tire. That way when something in the field breaks she can just rip off a little piece to fix it.

Re: Ruined $150 Shimano Deore hydraulic brakes

Crazy thought but are you using the wrong brake fluid or fluid that is contaminated? I just lock up my brakes everywhere because it's more gratifying to buy new tires than pads

Re: What can a Grin controller + cycle analyst do that KT controllers + KT display can't do?

One thing that annoys me with my KT bikes is the lag or delay on throttle. Haven't flashed any with OSF so I'm not sure if there is a way to get rid of that, But I hate when I am getting on the throttle coming out of a turn and it just does nothing for a half a second. Then again, I've heard a few g...

Re: New Free Bike Build - Specialized Ground Control w/ Mercalli forks

Good score- late 90s like 97-2000 rockhopper fsr i think
Those cranks look like they are older than the bike, like early 90s deore or deore dx or something
pivots could probably use a little bit of refreshing but you can get all the bearings for like 15 bucks

Re: Converting fleet of citibike style share bikes- front hub vs bbs01

Thank you for the input everybody. It seems like the overwhelming consensus here is front hub, I just looked at a photo of the bikes and realized that since they have chain guards that run the length of the chain stay adopting mid drive wouldn't be an ideal solution anyway. Not to mention the fact t...

Converting fleet of citibike style share bikes- front hub vs bbs01

I had an owner of a local business that does app based bike sharing contact me- he was considering converting some to electric. Terrain is mainly flat, there are a couple areas nearby with mild hills that 350w should be plenty for and he was clear that he wants to limit the top speed assist to aroun...

Going against the grain here with my Just more than a bike being mid drive, but i was a huge fan of the TSDZ2 for that purpose. It did more with less power than pretty much anything else i have used. If i put in a brisk walking level of effort (100-13x watts) 9 watts per mile got me in the 17s, If I...
