Re: Who has bought EM3EV's bicycle frames and how do you lik

Having ridden many mtbs for the last 20 plus years i would have to say there is really no comparison between a single pivot pogo stick type frame and one with a patented rear suspension linkage for off road riding. I would tend to agree. But what about for hub motor builds used for say 80% commutin...

Re: Who has bought EM3EV's bicycle frames and how do you lik

i will stick with my chopped up DH Comp. What type of frame did you chop up and is there much selection for DH, XC, All Mountain full suspension frames that leave a lot of room in the triangle? GT's seem to take up most of that space. Giant Glory 0, Kona Supreme Operator, Trek Session 9.9 Norco Sig...

Re: New Freewheel Crank Options...outboard BB!

Really? Looks like it's keyed to the spindle and the bashguard sits on the crank. Either way, this particular crankset prob won't work but I like the idea. A BB30 style bottom bracket with the freewheel transferring it's load to the spindle vice through the ISIS crank/spindle interface. That HXR Ea...

Re: New Freewheel Crank Options...outboard BB!

The freewheel is attached to the spindle, the splines are adjacent to the crank on the right in the pic. But ya, if the right side crank and the spindle were one piece that'd do the same thing- hold the freewheel/front sprockets more solidly. Hi Dave i just checked out the Hashtagg cranks on tarty ...

Re: Intense M6 FRO Lightning Rod's big block 20s2p

Do not get a Hope hub, get a second hand DT or a CK mate .
They have more manly engagement.
I have a spare CK 32h hub shell free if you want it to build up.
It has a few accidental drill marks (dont ask).
Pay the postage and its yours mate.

Re: LightningRods mid drive kit

GNG uses a four bolt pattern. This allows them to use either cheap Chinese four bolt flanged freewheels or cheap Chinese 16 tooth freewheels. The four bolt holes line up with every fourth valley between the teeth. I use a five bolt pattern which is compatible with ACS and White Industries. Yes that...

Re: Listing of E-bike frame kits

Nice bike Cheekybloke. Well the frame kits do not include rear shock and fork, but that does not mean they don't have a working suspension. Adding shock and fork gives you what you need, and you can choose quality and strength of those based on your riding style, weight or cash flow. That said, Sam...

Re: Listing of E-bike frame kits

None of the over the counter bikes have a real working suspension system, give Sam D a message and chop a real dh frame with a patented rear end.
He did this for me from a Giant DH Comp.

Re: Custom Giant Dh, Lightning Rods Big Block, Nuvinci N171

The 3 speed cassette i made was using 2 single speed cogs and 1 from a normal 8 speed because i could not get a 28t single speed cog. The spacers i used came with the single speed kit and are a little wider than 8 speed spacing. This is why i have a thumb shifter on friction mode. I also put 1/8 cha...

They make really tiny joints with the same dia hole as your shock bolt. I did think the adjustable bar would enable you to tighten it really well . What about the top shock linkage with a custom bolt in it? that looks in the right place. Stick with it mate its nearly there . Darren its not a bearing...

Re: LightningRods mid drive kit

Tried out the 3 speed today and it shifts, a little lumpy but it shifts.
Had to widen rear mech with washers and longer bolts to get the 1/8th single speed chain in there.
Also removed the curved bit of rear mech cage at thee side of the bottom jockey wheel as it rubbed on the chain a bit much.

Re: LightningRods mid drive kit

I had an idea for the non shiftingness of it all, which was to use an 1/8th chain and remove the alloy pin on the rear mech cage as it stops the chain going through.(it will be slacker on the cog) The chain does fit inbetween the cage but i may widen it if it needs it. Worst case is use cassette cog...
