Re: Dropouts

My trek 2010 frame's drop outs also provides snug fit (I've filed them to be snug fit), that's why I'm thinking that no torque arm/plate will provide any support to drop outs. Axle may break snug alloy drop outs before getting any strain on torque arm. I believe that axle may get support from torque...

Re: Dropouts

Isn’t it true that any torque arm/plate starts to do its job only when axle starts to spin? In other words: any torque arm helps only when drop outs brake. Otherwise torque arm/plate just sits there and does nothing. When you give some acceleration axle puts tension on drop outs, not torque a...

Re: Dropouts

I’ve filed down 2 torque plates from 3mm steel. It took 3 to 4 hours of intense filing and drilling, but I hope these plates will help in case alloy dropouts would break.

Re: Dropouts

The large size axle on 9c and 5300 clyte motors usually require the dropouts to be deepened, or at a minimum, have the bottom widened to a bigger radius. Alu frame? if so you definitely need torque arms or plates or something. Steel frames maybe not, just depends on the thickness of em. Radius is f...

Re: Dropouts

Over the years, bicycles have used different dropout spacings. The two most common spacings that are in general use are 130mm for road bikes and 135mm for mountain bikes. I'll bet you're using a road bike axle on a mountain bike hub. Learn more by reading about dropouts at http://www.sheldonbrown.c...

Dropouts

Hello Gents, Yesterday I started to put my e-bike together and encountered very disappointing issue with shallow dropouts. Hub's axle does not go into dropouts entirely, only ~70% axle's slides into dropouts. I have found that some lads do some filling to deepen dropouts, also puts some torque arm w...

Re: Help choosing power of the hub

Thank you all for discussions in this thread. At last I made up my mind and ordered 9C 1000W hub; still hesitating between batteries but tending towards 15ah ping battery as Mr. dogman suggested some time ago. The reason why I chose 9C is that it has Cycle Analyst with pre-attached/pre-configured CA...

Re: Help choosing power of the hub

Hi, I found that GD motors were seeking to minimize their hub weight and narrowed their hubs’ magnets width to 24mm. NC still sells hubs with 28mm width magnets. Probably both (NC and GD) retains advantages in their own way. I’m interested what width magnets Conhis hubs use? I asked Co...

it really looks lightweight and neat, that's kinda thing most people should have and start using for commuting instead of cars. It must be sheer fun to ride such machine.

Re: Help choosing power of the hub

yes, it would be nice if you would share some photos. No matter how much I put search on NC, GD, wilderness, Roadrunner, Conhis etc hubs I can't make final decision which one to get. When I was buying my car there was no so much hesitation. It took like few days and I bought it, but what relates bic...

Re: Help choosing power of the hub

Ykick, that's just amazing what you are saying. I thought there is no point to compare built quality of “Conhismotor” hubs and “9 continent” hubs. My believe was that “9 continent” hubs are so much better than “Conhismotor” hubs, but you say that these...
