Re: Scorpion 26 fs a new build

That is a nice trike you got there. I was planning a Scorpion FS 20 instead of the 26 just so I can have a 20 inch rim and run higher rpm motor and get higher efficiency when accelerating/climbing hills. If you want the best cells, I would go with tesla's cells if you can afford it. Super light and ...

Re: Recumbent Bike/Trike Touring experience?

You are going to be at the weight of two people on a bike and a good bit of bulky gear, why not go with a tandem bent in the first place? For one thing a longer bike has less need of suspension and is more stable at speed, I ride a long wheelbase e-bent without suspension but with Big Apple balloon...

Recumbent Bike/Trike Touring experience?

I am contemplating a new build. This time for a touring bike/trike. I was wondering if there are any others who have went down this path and would like to offer their wisdom on this matter. First off the requirements: 1) 200 miles per day 2) 8 hours max riding time per day 3) 25mph average per day m...

Re: HELP! I'm about to pay $1600 for a 1500w stand up scoot

I think super scooter sales is your best bet. Sure it is quite expensive, but in the end it is better than building one if you hate building and maintaining. The skateboard build can also be expensive and the etow doesnt see to fit your needs of 30mph. The 1500W can comfortably get you up to 35mph. ...

The 1500W version should fit your needs. They arent cheap but a blast to ride. http://www.superscootersales.com I am not sure about the legality of these because they are fast. Way faster than 20mph federal limit. As for maintence, anything going fast and mechanical will need servicing eventually. Y...

Re: Battery Lifetime Energy Throughput

This is an interesting topic you brought up. I am sure you are not the first to think about it. In practice, I think it would matter little if a battery cell can provide some capacity after some time period with some number of cycle count. Let's take some example to illustrate in detail: 1) DIY ebik...

Re: ultra light,40 mph w/fairing,93+mi range,bicycle

I say just get the zero motorcycle at this point. It is production. It is proven so potentially it will last longer. Also it is probably a lot cheaper than what you are going to build. The only downside is you have to register it. And have a license to operate a motorcycle here in the states. Everyt...

If it is 150mm, i might have to reconsider and think about it. You would be able to use two 1 cm adapters from bouth sides to get 17.5cm. Great! Im st...

Re: Vector. New 5.4 kW ebike from scratch.

Just did some measurements and it looks like i would need at least 175mm to fit all my 24s LEAF batteries. If i got with 20s then i think a 150mm frame would do. As of now a 125mm frame will not do.

That could add 4 more bricks of lipo. If I remember correct the 15 cm wide frame holds 32s for 134v, m...
