Re: mx 400 build log

Ya man, he is. I put him in the chest carrier, throw a helmet on him and we go for rides a few times a week, he loves it! I did another top speed run today alone on another street and I hit 22 mph consistently, 23 here and there so we'll call it 22. I've been unhappy with the acceleration and rememb...

Re: mx 400 build log

I was able to gps the bike today and it topped out at 21mph it hit 23 but we were starting to go downhill. I would squeeze a few more mph's out of it if I change the motor sprocket to a 13t but I'll leave it alone. I'd actually like to put a bigger sprocket on the rear so I have more torque. On the ...

Re: mx 400 build log

I've been lagging on posting results of this build. I've done quite a bit and will get everything posted here soon. I knew the motor wouldn't hold up very long. Our combined weight is about 175lbs, we live on an incline, and 24v motors don't like 48v. After a few hard rides the motor began to smell ...

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

Couldn't stop thinking about those lipos so I went back to hobbyking's site and realized I was looking at the international warehouse, so I switched the site to the US warehouse and saw the lipos were in stock, so I ordered 2 packs. The length is going to be a snug fit but I think they're going to c...

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

That sucks! I'd be pissed if I paid that much for one of those and couldn't get uphill. I really hope you get your vomo soon, they look so bad ass! I finally got the db25 connector mounted to the frame, so no more removing the deck to charge!!! :D I also threw a quick stain on the deck, and it looks...

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

It's pulls nice on the hill in front of my house. I get off on powell in the city which is pretty flat, especially where I work (6th and howard), I've been meaning to go hit some steeper hills. I noticed you haven't posted in your thread and I didn't want to ask if you received your vomo yet, sorry ...

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

Got the new balancing harness sorted out, just need to mount it in the deck. I took it to work for the first time this week and it was so much fun riding in San Francisco. I was riding wheelies down the sidewalk and hitting top speed on the streets. It is so fun weaving in an out of traffic and tran...

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

I notched out the old charger port hole to make room for the db9 connector which took a while, but I got it in there. I think on of the jst connectors got pinched/bent while inserting them through the hole because once I connected the 2 lipos, I saw the magic genie (smoke from burning electronics) a...

Thanks James! I finally got my stem in today so the bars are ready to be installed, hopefully I can get to it this weekend, work is crazy right now. I also received some retainers for my andersons.

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

Depends on what you're looking for. I wanted a hub motor because it makes the scooter more balanced(no motor hanging off one side of the scooter) Hub motors can also take a lot of abuse so that's what I wanted. I have about $350 into this thing so far (I had a lyen controller and lipos) so for my pa...

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

Went to lowes today and picked up a piece of wood to make a new deck. I was going to get some polycarbonite but decided to try my hand at some woodwork (I'm not a wood guy at all). I trimmed the board and drilled out the holes for the mounting screws. I bolted the board to the scooter and it looked ...

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

Well I had no luck getting parameter designer on my netbook. I did however get XPD on my netbook and it worked flawlessly! I set the lvc, and max current to my liking and went for a ride. All I can say is wow! With the current set at 60 amps and the small wheel diameter, this thing has tons of torqu...

Re: XPD: open-source keywin e-bike lab replacement

Hi, I was able to install all the files and launch xpd. I opened up the 12fet profile and made a few changes. After making the changes I hit "save" and got an error message saying "Failed to save profile permission denied"? Anyone ever get this message? Any help would be much appreciated.

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

Ya it is designed for them. I've also considered finding another battery that's the same size and running 72v, but I'm not sure how the motor would like it. I took some measurements and I can either fit 3 6s packs in there with the controller on the fender, or 2 6s packs and the controller under the...

Re: 250w hub motor scooter mod log

So I've finally had some time to start playing with this thing. I ordered some handlebars that are usually found on fixed gear bicycles, so I just need to get a handlebar clamp and I can mount those up when they arrive. I balanced the 2 lipo packs that I had and pulled the 36v lion pack from the sco...

Re: VOMO 20mph Electric Scooter *Indiegogo

I posted a new thread. Just added a few pictures. Hope to get started this weekend. My balance board has been getting me around but its super sketchy in the city. Hope to start riding the scooter in the city next week. It really needs more power I could only get it up to 16mph (I'm 5'7 150lbs) and t...

250w hub motor scooter mod log

So a few weeks ago I ordered a scooter off eBay for $560. It looks similar to the ecoreco and vomo scooter just a bit uglier. I bought it to get around San Francisco to and from work. I really wanted a vomo and sent them some emails and never got a response so that scared me a bit. I also didn't wan...

Re: VOMO 20mph Electric Scooter *Indiegogo

Don't feel too bad, I still haven't received my scooter either. It was supposed to arrive the 28th and the tracking # I was given says "label created" so who knows if the damn guy even sent it. I contacted the him and he said its on the way and it's going to take a few fays at customs because of the...

mx 400 build log

So its been a while since I've posted here. It looks like may of you have made some cool stuff. My last build was an E300 with a 6500w turnigy motor. The scooter has been scrapped and the parts have been given to friends/burnt out lol. About 8 months ago I had my first kid and have been busy with hi...

Re: VOMO 20mph Electric Scooter *Indiegogo

Very cool, hope you get it soon. I was going to buy one but Chickened out. I emailed them with a few questions a week ago and still haven't heard back so I went with a knock off on eBay. I need a scooter ASAP so that made my decision pretty easy. The veetron looks a lot cooler than mine but oh well....

Re: Motobecane 700ds build

Yeah you're right about that. At first I was thinking of locking the shocks or just taking it easy on the suspension. Now I'm thinking I should chop the top 8" of the box and only carry 3 batteries down there. The other 3 will have to be up top. Kind of sucks not having a good canvas to start with, ...

So I made a little progress this week. Parts are slowly coming in allowing me to get more tasks accomplished. I just received 50 ft of 10ga wire so now I can make my charge and discharge cables.

Motobecane 700ds build

Hey what's up. It's been a while since I've been on the forum/built anything, so I decided to start a project. I've always wanted a badass mountain bike to thrash on the street and light trails around my house. I've has this motobecane for a few years and really never rode it. The frame is a bit sma...
