Re: 2012 Top 10 E-S eBikes of the Year

A hall of fame would be a great option. Split into different categories just like Timma2500 suggested. Maybe the admins would introduce that to ES updating it on a yearly basis. Here´s my idea for a listing. Feel free to bring along your ideas please. :-) 1. Best e-bike build ever! ( Craftsmanship, ...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Yeah Rix, same here my BMS is probably bored by now. It never had to cut the power in the last 2 years.

I do the same. Never discharging the battery to more then 1200 w/h. The pack is as good as new and shows no signs of failure at all. :mrgreen:

Re: Victpower battery pack after 1 year

Hey Cwah, just read through this entire thread. Sorry for all the trouble you´ve been through. Although many members have had bad cells when ordering Hobby King Lipos, none of the packs that found it´s way into my bike had any problems when arriving here in Germany. In roughly 2 years a total of 32 ...

Re: Cube ( Custom Bomber ) build. FINISHED !!

We had a wonderful winter day with lots of sun inviting both bike and builder to go for a ride to a nearby castle. A total distance of 43 km was ridden in absolute tranquility on an almost deserted bike path. I was frozen stiff upon coming back home. :-) Only 9,7 Ah were used for the trip and 0,874 ...

Re: #1 The long road

Both thumbs up on your magnificent mechanical work so far. :-)
That´s what bike building is all about.
Think, sketch, draw, think again, cut, grind, weld, put all the cool stuff onto the frame and yes, don´t forget to make it electric!

The socket used for charging is made by Harting and has 42 pins. I pass all the balance wires through this and use 4 pins for the - and + leads.

Re: The USA really needs to convert to Metric!

Simple, logical, a bit Dlogic perhaps -lol- and easy to grasp. That makes it the worlds industrial standard.

I bet if someday aliens invade earth they´ll spare everyone who still uses anything else but the metric system. :mrgreen:

But still, metric rules. Yeah!

Re: How to improve cooling in Cyclone motor?

For my first ever e-bike build a new housing was made for the cyclone motor. I lived in Spain back then and especially during the hot summer month the motor overheated quit often. After this modification it was run at approximately 1,2 Kw and never failed again. :mrgreen: http://i44.tinypic.com/10id...

Thanks for the charming words. :-) Finally some spare time was found to fit the switch to the bike. The intention was to use it for activating the rear brake light.

That´s no big deal since the rear part of the switch is hexagonal. Just clamp that part in the lathe and work it down to a diameter of 8mm. Next cut the new thread on it and you´re all set. :-) http://i40.tinypic.com/2cx7y2f.jpg Located on the left side is the original t shaped brass connector. The ...
