Re: 8Fun CST 250w and 350w, what is the difference?

Howdy. From the correspondence I have had with Bafang in the past, I believe that the only real difference between the 250 W and 350 W CST is simply the variance of power that is being put through it. You may notice on the Bafang website, that the CST is rated from 250 W to 500 W. The smaller powere...

Re: Horn - safe and cool

I don't know what you mean by "lamer"? I'm simply reporting what my Norton popped up when I tried to play the recording from that link. I mean nothing malicious by my statement, only that I am informing others that I got an indication that there may be a problem. Thanks for your concern.

Re: Sexy Practical Velomobile?

Hello Kirk, As I recall, Bill didn't formally advertise the WAW out on the OHPV forums, I think he just mentioned it in passing over there. He told me he had sold it (along with his tilting trike) this past season. He focuses most of his "alternative transportation" attention upon his Gizmo, an all ...

An FYI. That link provided by iperov, when asked to play the audible when there, provided a "blocked malicious attack" notice from my Norton anti virus.

Re: Thinking of building a Recumbent

Sorry for the delay. Got a new hip since my last message. Just a little bit under the weather. Thanks BatFink for the info on the front shocked fork. I went back out to the Marzocchi site but I really couldn't find that model. No doubt they make fine front shocks and I'll have to look into them a li...

Re: Thinking of building a Recumbent

Hi BF,

Curious. What is the brand/model of the front shock absorber for that 20" wheel? I'm always on the lookout for decent 20" shocked front forks, they are rare. I enjoy designing/building my own 'bents, and hybrid e-assist bikes.

Re: Electric vehicles, poor performance, high cost, vaporwar

Re: Bafang Bpm, how many RPM?

Is the BPM code 8 equivalent to the Mac 8T? Equivalence with regard to unloaded rpm's at 36 volts is as follows: BPM code 8 is 378 as per Bafang, and the MAC 8T is listed as 360 rpm. Yep, it would make comparisons for performance values much easier if the manufacturers would list them wih KV rating...

Regardless, many months ago I too wanted to de-confuse the code ratings so I could better understand ...

Re: Bafang BPM Marin Build

Just curious, the BPM 2 has several listed dropout widths available, the least being a 138mm size. Was your bike's rear dropout width a little larger than the normal 135mm's? Or did you find that you could spread your rear stays to accommodate the BPM? Or did you find that the dropouts width on the ...

Hi David,

What voltage and amperage are you putting through this new controller ? Also, how many fet's and what kind are they? I know cell_man has had the 6 FET models for awhile and I've been waiting to hear from him about the 9 or 12 FET versions.

Re: Oregon - No ebiking with suspended drivers license?

Quote taken from today's Eugene Register Guard:

“The bottom line is, he has a suspended license,” Massey said. “Driving is a privilege, not a right, and he lost that privilege.”

Massey was the citing officer. Note he said "has" not "had" a suspended license.
