Re: Suitable rim width?

You can run pretty much any rim you want. But wider is better for the street. I ran a DM24 in the back for over 10000 miles with tires from 1.95 to 3" wide, riding hard and fast as well. I'd go with a wider rim however, cause tires will wear to a flat and it's better to have a less sharp angle on t...

Re: Suitable rim width?

On pavement, you can ride wide rims. 2/3 of tire width is safe, and let you ride lower PSI. It is a myth that high PSI is making lower rolling resistance. Every tire has its own specific rolling resistance that is optimal at a specific rim width/PSI ratio. Small volume does require higher pressure ...

Re: Suitable rim width?

I should also note that i only do street and city riding..very rarely off pavement.
I dont have an air pressure gauge but i generally put enough air in the tires where it is hard to squeeze them..i guesstimated basically. I figure the harder the tire then id get more top speed

Re: Suitable rim width?

The DM24 is only 24mm wide inside, 32mm outside. No way in hell should you run a tire over 2.125" on it. For anything over that get the Alex DX32 or similar rim which is 32mm inside and 39mm outside. Works well with tires from 2-3" wide. The DX32 is also a much stronger rim than the DM24. Hi there ...

Re: MXUS 3K Turbo (V3) 45mm Direct Drive Hub Motor

Its super easy to go to a metal store, like https://www.metalsupermarkets.com/ and buy some flat stock that they can cut for you to a general dimension. You'd have to cut your own slot, with a grinder and thick cut-off wheel. Then your next concern is mounting the torque arm, which could be as simp...

Re: MXUS 3K Turbo (V3) 45mm Direct Drive Hub Motor

Ok ill get a pic asap.
Also im using 72V battery pack and 72v 18fet controller...phase degree 120, 50A but rated at 2000w. I experience very slight sputtering at full throttle at times but not always. Would it be because the controller is rated at a lower wattage than the motor? Thx

Re: MXUS 3K Turbo (V3) 45mm Direct Drive Hub Motor

Whats the maximum amount of Amps roughly that you can you safely give this motor? My controller is set at 50A at the moment Depends on the turn count, the lower the turn count the more amps it can take because of the larger shorter wire. Higher turn motors have longer smaller wire, shall I say wind...

Re: Brightening CA Backlight

Would adding 2 1k resistors twisted together harm anything? Wiring two resistors in parallel will add another 5ma to the current draw for a total of 10ma (i.e. (1K)||(1K) = 0.5K, 5V/0.5K = 10ma). You need to look in the Guide to see what you total current draw will be vs your battery voltage to see...

Re: Brightening CA Backlight

actually both CA3s are running on the same battery pack. just one CA3 is brighter than the other straight out of the box. I am not confident opening the CA3s up. Anyhow, since you don't feel comfortable cracking the case, you can go after this by directly increasing the 5V regulator load with an ex...

You'd want a sinewave controller for the ultra silence, but if you are on a budget then there is nothing wrong with the ebay seller hksunwin he has controllers for your needs and they are cheap and work great. They are under rated in terms of listed power, just go ahead and buy his 72V 1000W unit f...

Hi guys What do you recommend for a controller? Ill be running 72V and i have a greentime 72V 1500w 15fet 45A but im using it on another motor. Do you guys recommend higher spec controller or is the greentime good enough? The price is also pretty good at 50u.s. dollars or so. I seen 100u.s.dollar co...

Hi guys Decided to try the single freewheel sprocket in the rear wheel on my cyclone bike.
