I'm done building with knock offs. This will be what I build with moving forward.

Fast and quick. I embarrass motorcycles on a daily basis. When you're ready to make it interesting, then I'll go to the trouble of going to the track and getting enough evidence to satisfy the naysayers. I'm not into grandstanding, but I'm not going to sit idly by while claims I know to be inaccura...

Re: Kilowatt Bag Holds Over 2 KWh of LiPo or 18650's $80

I had a question recently about the quality of the stitching, and the interested buyer noted that most of the battery bags they have used in the past would rip apart eventually. Indeed, I experienced this with my Ibera triangle bag on the first ebike I built. I pointed out was that my Kilowatt bag i...

Re: Paratrooper Build

Also worth verifying what axle is on the motor you ultimately purchase. If it's an M16 Axle (Some MXUS 3K-Turbo motors use this axle size), then the grin universal torque arms will not fit. (They are for M14 and M12 size).

will 12 18650 fit in the bottom of the bag without the black spacers? The bag has an internal dimensions of 78mm x 225mm, so if the cell is 18.5mm diameter or less, then yes, 12 should fit, without spacers. Also the closed cell foam padding liner does stretch a bit (Though the Cordura & Nomex fabri...

Re: How to mount the darn controller!

I agree with Chalo, but would add that if feasible, and you have the connectors, shortening the wires to be "just long enough" makes the install a LOT more tidy. A chunk of "lizard Skin" like what's used on DH chain stays, makes a clean covering at the controller's wiring as well. https://www.amazon...

Re: Dogman Dans E bike burns his house.

Thanks for the thorough recap of this tragedy, Dan. Let it be a lesson to all of us.

Just another example that one can never be too trusting with their batteries, even when equipped with a "BMS" and a "smart charger".

And that it can happen to ANYONE. :cry:

Re: Kickstand for EEB type bike.

Best thing I've found are these moped kick stands. You have to grind off the inner tabs, though.

They tend to be a bit short if using 26" wheels. For 19" / 24" wheels, they work ok.

Re: Bikesdirect Fatbike with BBS02?

bikesdirect.com sells some great donor bikes for converting to electric. I have done several, all with fantastic results.

I would recommend getting the bike first, and taking measurements before purchasing any electric kits.

I don't think that's a YYK controller. Looks just like the controller that came with a cyclone kit I bought recently, actually.

Re: Lightest possible Mid drive Fat bike build

Have you looked at the Tangent Ascent drive options? The 3KW one might be a good fit, and I'd bet Dave could figure out how to adapt the mounting bracket for the carbon frame.

Re: Please help me choose a controller

I would choose the 6FET 3077 controller. This will handle your stated needs adequately, though may run a little warm. If you like your controller to have a bit more "upgradability", then you might consider a 9FET 3077 or even a 12FET 3077, but in all likelyhood, 6 of the IRFB3077 MOSFET's should be ...
