Re: E-bike mid-drive motors hardly outperforms hub motors

Many of these commercial mid drives are overengineered, hard to get parts for, and lock you out of modification. They may be sleek and have great weight balance, but unless you're offroading or hill climbing, you won't see the benefit. Honestly, I think that's just it. We are seeing the trend of th...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

bikeisland.com also has a nice frame and fork combo for 125 shipped which would be a good candidate for a budget build. unfortunately, finding 135/170mm wheels for a reasonable price seems hard at the moment so i held off on ordering...plus i can't tell anyone i got it from uncle weiner. https://bik...

Re: Don't Use Aluminum Forks with front hub motors!

I've done a couple aluminum forks just because it was all I had at the time. I would conclude that in general it's not ideal but I would say also very install dependent and dependent on the quality of the fork and design of the dropouts First one I did was on a cheaper JUDY TT Then I rushed to get d...

Re: Killed 2 bafang SWX02 motors. Yes, two!!!

Can he just get one of those jump wheels from Jag 35 and swap the guts into his wheel? Not sure of the spacing but that looks almost like a 100mm front hub. Granted it would be a different wind but it probably wouldn't make a terrible difference for walking the dog edit: Never mind I thought those o...

damn it, i was being an optimist since it sounded so cool. the pessimist in me should remember what the video quality was like a decade ago though and say it probably was a thumbnail that looked like a potato made of legos shooting fire since my iphone uses 35mb in like a second of video nowadays

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

To me, the best solution would be to make a cover plate for that side without so much air space inside that pretty tightly hugs the motor housing and the controller and is entirely heat sink, Kind of like a finned differential cover for a car. Bit of a pain in the ass for someone to do a one off, bu...

Re: BBSHD 29er or 26 or 27.5 FS Mountain / Off Road Opinions Needed

Split it down the middle and make a mullet 69er with yours. the higher axle to crown should slacken things up a bit and should help angle the motor up a few degrees to help with log clearance. forks and tires plentiful. quick and easy. see if you like it and you are only down an hour and few hundred...

Re: Working rear triangle to accommodate different hub widths. How much is too much

good call, i have been meaning to try the chain wax. beach bike seems like the perfect application

the tide had just come down the other day on the bay side here and i took my tsdz2 stumpjumper on the beach. i was surprised it actually did reasonably well, now im hooked on this idea

yup...aluminum. i was thrown off since the tubes did not look that thick and im so used to hydroformed tubing nowadays. that being said, i guess as dog dipstick said, spacers on the inside would make a better fit. i was originally intending to do a mid drive on this one, but it seems there are still...

I seem to struggle to find a definitive answer, i know i have done as much as 5mm with no issue...yet i see old school cyclocross and road guys posting looking for 126mm hubs cause they can't use 130, etc I also know that different materials and construction will change the variables a bit. seems li...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

yes I suppose it would make more sense, I like the form factor of this control but perhaps I could use one of the integrated battery pack controllers rather than this.

The TSDZ2 is a great little motor. It really feels like a bike on steroids. I was just riding yesterday and was thinking how much i love the way it performs.
