Re: I did it - I launched my Bafang Ultra based ebike! Also selling Bafang Ultra spares !

Custom Ti frame builders located in the US charge a significant amount to do one off builds and it usually takes several months per frame. what bothers me? useless forum content about unhappy customers and defensive vendors. created due to a lack of transparency (or even personal awareness) about bu...

Am I understanding correctly that you are fabricating (jig, weld, finish) titanium frames in the US?

Re: E Velomobil

Very Neat! You appear to have plenty of space to work! Twisting spokes - you must be an old hand at wheel assembly. Can you tell me about your frame materials and design? Not sure what VA is. Also, what are your plans for the outer skin/shell? Compound curves? Materials? Kepp it up! Cheers, Len

Re: GNG X1-pro 3000w

contacted Jon - he indicated that when they ship, they will be done so with an email containing a photo of the kit and an update to the paypal status as shipped.

Still in the final stages of testing.

I encouraged him to take their time and get it right on the first pass :thumb:

Re: First-ever plane with no moving parts

I wonder what a super lightweight DC-DC converter that could go from say 48v - 40,000v could look like. If we need like 10kw of power, the 40,000 V output would only need to supply like .25 ~ .75 amps continuous...

Re: Some comedic relief for you all.. - busted lunacycle BBS02/HD wrench

i think like 25-35 ft/lbs is the range one would tighten a lockring. That would be lateral to the spinning direction of the ring. Cant even see how one could bend the wrench axial to the BB shell that far while tightening the lockring. The tool would have to slip off before it bent that far?

Curious - besides the photo, was there any description of what happened?

Looks like someone put in a vice and bent it.

Re: Your Creation's Before & After Pics

no worries, just wanted to confirm there are pearls out there that the later generations really have to dig back in the archives to find. That was a two year build!

SM didnt interview all the OG builders....

Re: 27.5 plus mid drive

more accomplished. Next are the side corner gussets to secure the battery. then receiving mounts for the frame brackets. Then clean it up and send it to PC.
