Re: Taking the whole lane

My main concern is either being doored, side swiped, or right hooked. The speed limit during my commute is 30mph, and my ebike tops out at 32mph on a flat. So I actually feel safer taking the right lane, there are also no bike lanes during my commute.

Re: GT LTS

Would this bike be able to handle 40mph and the abuse of the city?

Re: Just got my ebike kit from yescomusa what battery?

40mph would be great currently I am topping out at 32mph.

Would this 1500w controller increase the performance of my kit?

Re: Just got my ebike kit from yescomusa what battery?

I am currently looking to upgrade my kit, the yescomusa kit is okay while offroading but I was wondering if I should go mid drive instead? Or should i upgrade the hub motor for more speed? I have a v48 Li-ion battery, 30A with 40A burst.

Taking the whole lane

Do you guys take up the whole lane when you ride your ebikes out in the streets? I feel that its safer and increases visibility. Plus, I routinely go 30mph on my 48v motor, I have a rear tail light and wear a bright green reflective vest.

Battery BMS Switch

The BMS switch on my Li-Ion battery broke, so I just wire the two white wires together so that the BMS is always on and the battery works. Is there any downside to this, or should I fab up a new BMS switch?

Re: hairline cracks

Should I ever bother with building a aluminum frame? Or will I have to get a steel frame bike? I just dont want any cracks in the future.

The headtube on my aluminium frame is starting to crack, I will be switching to a different frame, steel this time.

You nailed it, commuting to work is suddenly fun again, offroading is suddenly 10x more fun, and the freedom and motivation to explore.

Re: Ebiking is so fun its changed my life

For us old folks it makes the difference between not going up hills and doing so. Since there are fairly long upslopes to return to our house It really makes the difference between getting home after 20 miles or not. It also makes the difference between riding for a half hour and being whipped or d...

Ebiking is so fun its changed my life

Hey guys, I just started ebiking about 120 miles ago, so far it has changed my life. I always grew up riding bikes so the ebike is pretty much a mountain bike on steroids, like a motorcycle. In fact, I ride my ebike way more than my motorcycle, not to mention I can go off road and hit bike trails. I...

Re: Just got my ebike kit from yescomusa what battery?

The bike handles great actually, but I was riding against heavy winds at 30mph, even when tucked in Im blown around alot. The front is fairy light, the tire and rim currently weigh very little.

Re: Just got my ebike kit from yescomusa what battery?

Thanks for the advice I definitely want to run a wider tire and rim. The rim brakes I currently have does the job. With the 1.95 tires I'm getting blown around a lot by the wind and its unstable especially at speeds over 30mph.

Re: Just got my ebike kit from yescomusa what battery?

Would this rim work? Would the rear rim that comes with the yescomusa kit accept a 2.4 inch tire?
