Re: Xyster virus is catching

So using a priority mail shipping box I covered it with tin foil to make it water proof and then Xysterized it to make it weather proof. It will certainly last until I get something else perhaps more attractive. Then again I kinda like the stealth appearance it presents. Mike Looks fantastic, Mike....

We all understand that the law is rarely on the little guy's side despite the "little guy" constituting the majority of "guys".

Yes, having the controller short out and the motor go WFO on you can ruin your day. Even with a contactor to kill the power, it can throw you off so fast you won't know what hit you. Are there any combinations of component failures, or other faults, by which a brushless controller would suffer a si...

Interesting...bet it's an X5 with thicker axles and a different housing since it would be cheaper just to alter the ebike X5 than mass produce entirely new motors, and those wattage numbers are well within X5 spec, and as you noted, the covers are identical.

Toadies of both sexes are attracted to power like fleas to a dog. Society's nerds have gone without either sex or power for so many generations now, I wonder for how long they'll (we'll ? :) ) remain goofy, benign nerds now that nerd-suited technology is all powerful and sexy.

Yah, it'd take a ridiculous number of those cells to make a useable ebike pack. Who'd want to spend all the time it takes to solder together hundreds of them? :wink:

Now if they we're a lot cheaper per amp-hour....but unfortunately, they're not.

I get the same message, and the domain is still the correct one, and there's no frames, so the odds of it redirecting to a fiendish phishing site is small. As for the reason for the change, perhaps yahoo groups admins keyed-in on their talk of "ebike porn", and responded accordingly. :)

You're right.

It's nice to read that your ebike-assembly odyssey has finally come to a satisfactory conclusion.

Why are you concerned about the MP's knowing it's electric?
