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

Would you guys recommend this wheel for the front? It has a disk compatible hub and I will need a new front wheel for disc conversion.

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

Conclusion : Fat tires need a wider rim made for fat tires. Especially at higher speeds. Then with fat tires, there is a fork and brake caliper(s) (or disk) fitting to check. I'll second that. Going from 24mm ID rims to 32mm ID rims made a huge difference in the stability of the bike. Only wish I h...

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

I will be getting a Alex DH24 rim for the front and running the cylops in the rear when the tire starts wearing out. Is anyone running a narrower tire in the front and a wider rear? I noticed motorcycles usually have smaller front tire and a larger wide tire.

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

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

I'd like to build a bike with the yescomusa kit - I've read elsewhere that the axle is exceptionally wide - 145mm or something (http://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=49638). This is the battery I used, 15mph range pretty much full throttle and plenty of steep hill climbs. Is that sti...

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

How would I go about enabling brake regen? Also my shifters are integrated with the brakes, would I need to get new shifters?

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

Just got it fixed now, it was the hall connectors, the bike is a beast I'm passing cars and climbing hills like bat outta hell. One thing I haven't hooked up yet is the PAS and power brakes. What does the PAS do?

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

The wheel looks true, but the motor makes a chainsaw buzzing sound especially at low speeds it goes away after about 26kmh

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

The motor works but its dragging like crazy and makes the whole bike shake. I can pedal faster than the motor, I know its not the rear brakes because I disconnected them.

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

Got the battery, LED display comes on but the throttle doesn't seem to be working. Brakes and PAS are both disconnected, the display shows the rear wheel speed when I spin the back wheel and the throttle is plugged in but doesn't work what can be the problem?

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

Going to pick up the battery tomorrow, what does the PAS do, can I leave it unplugged for now? And also what about the brake levers that connect to the controller, are those for brake regen?

Re: Feeling pathetic, pissed off and generally down :(

Don't worry, you will recovery soon. I broke my wrist about a year ago during a horrible motorcycle accident. I was in the hospital and required surgery which included plates and screws. I thought I would never be able to ride again, but here I am riding another motorcycle, road, mountain, and an al...

The lipos look good, but I am just checking out some plug and play alternatives. What about this battery, 30A discharge, I know the lipos would probably give better performance. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Electric-Bicycle-ebike-48V-15AH-Lithium-Li-ion-Battery-and-charger-US-seller-/331037670108?pt=Cycl...

Just got my 1000w 48v ebike kit from yescomusa, I've been dreaming of building my ebike for two years now. I've taken the first step and brought the kit, but I want to know what is the best battery option for me. My goal is to use my hard tail MTB for offroading purposes, and the option to hang it o...
