Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Can anyone tell me the sort/strength/Ampage of solar power I will need whilst boondocking to charge the Bombers? Thanks! Yep, see here: http://store.quietrush.com.au/1/post/2014/02/goal-zero-providing-portable-solar-power-for-quiet-rush-ebikes.html and http://store.quietrush.com.au/1/post/2013/08/e...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

See that the handles are missing on top? They went to the controller mounting. Mac's are great, nice thick aluminum :) DSC02921.JPG Sacre'Bleu!

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Easier to see figures on handlebars, but it looks way more bulkier :( When the handlebars are clean it feels more like a regular pedal bike, not so with a bunch of stuff on handlebars. Also a lot easier to wreck your display when you stack it off road - bear in mind that this is the original design...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Those are some pretty impressive ranges you're getting CD. Love to hear more from folks riding with theirs using the limiter, as range is sometimes more important than outright adrenaline and I know they're capable of some good range with efficient riding. Even better, strap on a heart rate monitor ...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Good to see the solar question coming up and to hear how others are also approaching it. I've used a couple of options, the first was a DIY setup in my bus, using Jaycar components to put in place a 150Ah slimline battery and 1500W charger/inverter to drive the Stealth chargers. I did a brief writeu...

I've been revising the design of my lighting systems a bit as well, wanted to create a new camera mount platform that can accept a stick-on GoPro mount, so we can get some variety in POV shots.

What are your thoughts on these Fox forks? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxCELXCde18&feature=youtube_gdata_player IMO, the BEST out there, and the most expensive! Yep, they're nice. Personally, I'm keeping a close watch on the development of the inverted forks from these guys: http://www.dvos...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

On the road this morning about to deliver Bomber 413 to one excited owner - very nicely specced. Theodore, the crates are designed solid. Stick with just undoing the screws..no pry bar needed. Just be careful lifting it out of the crate, its a heavy/awkward lift. I typically lay mine over or seek ex...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Mounting Mousse tube has never been an easy. I used a ton of tire greese and 3 levers that had 20" long handles and a wheel holder which wont work for our hub motors, even then it was a pain in the ass with a capital "A". Mousse dont ever flat, the other good thing about Mousse tubes...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Probably not pratical, but would be awesome if the jacket could hold the charger or some bike tools. Right now I wear a 661 DH spinal and chest vest, be great to have built in protection and perhaps some reflection. The spinal protection would make whatever is on the outside feel a lot lighter.

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Not that I'm confusing Harley for Stealth, I know Stealth is tiny, and they don't even have T-shirts available, or do they? What about Dealer T-shirts? Even one of those would be nice, if it says Stealth on it. I'm pretty sure where I bought mine, they don't have any. A jacket would be nicer. Is th...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

There were certainly some steep bits in there, stuff which I'd have struggled with on my MTB OR a dirt bike. What was interesting to me was the extent to which the Fighter was an enjoyable midpoint between the two. There is some more footage of the ride which I'll save for another time, but getting ...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

What alot of people don't understand is if the rider is willing to help a little bit with pedal effort, the Bomber and Fighter can climb some steep stuff pretty well. Exactly. You can climb some surprisingly steep stuff. If I'd had the lower gearing available in the Bomber, I may have made it up a ...

I'm not the least bit interested in any electric motorcycle, but an electric bicycle has great appeal to me. None of my friends understand why I would want one at all.

Thanks for those considered comments Rix, agree, sad for the young guys family, but seriously, no helmet/no lights/riding at night? Crazy stuff. Worth noting it was a motorised bicycle AFAIK, not an eBike, but our Australian legislators are unlikely to differentiate. On another note, I've got a guy ...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

You would be better off replacing it. +1 here but I'd recommend staying with current spec rim, I know Stealth have put a LOT of R&D time into wheel component optimisation. Keeps things simple - but I recognise the bespoke path can be fun if you've got the time, cash and patience to work the pro...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

That looks like a good light with a useful light pattern. Personally I'd like a light that runs off the bikes main battery to simplify charging, as long as it doesn't draw too much current. I'm not in love with the mount either. I think it would look better with motorcycle style fork ears. I consid...
