Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

DingusMcGee Please tell the amount that was the "extra amps" that cooked your cyclone motor with the Kelly controller? This info could help those of us out that may go beyond the standard stock controller, thinking about the luna 50amp bluetooth controller. Those multi stars are only 10c rated disch...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

DingusMcgee Putting 6 of the multistars into my frame has become a big challenge to me. I'd like to do 2 separate packs of 3 batteries each, that's 75volts fully charged. I did ride with some eBay floureon brand lipos that were only 13ah and about $100 each including shipping. Obviously the the mult...

Re: My DIY studed tire build

DrkAngel
Great info!
It never occurred to me the danger factor with studded tires.
I'm guessing the danger is more with the DIY studded tires as the screws stick out farther then the studs on a purchased studded tire.

Re: Where to get a good 72V pack?

Can't beat three of these. At almost $50 off each its a good deal. Soon these will be the normal price then sold out. I picked up 6 of them. Just under $500 with hazardous goods cargo shipping.

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

Update to mention shipping charges of the hobby king 6s lipo. To ship one to the USA, north east, NYC/southern New England is $30, but six ship for $65. Comes in just under $500 for 6 with shipping. It's shipped fed ex hazardous goods. No more getting around this.

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

16ah lipos on sale! For you rc lipo users these are in stock and $48 off the normal price of $120 each, just $72 for now. It looks like hobby king is more on the ball these days. They did refund me for a dead cell battery of this type from last spring. I did it by online chat and supplying required ...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

As we are on the subject of mounts and brackets I'd thought I'd contribute. In a past life of stubborn stupidity, waisting time and money on a friction drive set up, I 3d printed some motor mounts. I couldn't believe that was just sept of last year. Things went a lot faster after finding out about t...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

DingusMcgee I did realize I forgot to mention I used typical 3d printing to produce the freewheel covers. Viacad was the software I used, like a high end google sketch up, to do the cad work, only $99 though. The covers are 2mm in wall thickness, great to be able to do this nowadays. Just out of cur...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

I've been working on some freewheel protection. I went for the midrange sbp freewheel and noticed that being thicker than stock, would allow a cover to be attached. Maybe this will help keep it clean and prolong it's life. The cranks don't sit as flush with this freewheel so I was able to get one on...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

Apex I have been riding and testing my in frame cyclone Ebike all summer without any major issue. I hit it hard from the beach to wooded trails. I do feel occasional resistance at the crank freewheel so...with the kit flywheel. I've been trying to get oil in it. I'm doing it differently than your se...

Hooked up speedo, it hauls! 36.5 MPH

OK I took it to work friday and stashed it for later. Did a Long Wharf, lighthouse point, and east rock ride all after work. This is the New Haven CT area, to fill you guys in. If you have been through this area you remember the traffic Getting all good feedback from people about the bike. I even go...

Test Ride Video, what a blast!

Just getting out and about. Still need the tensioner so I can't punch it or the motor gear slips. Got off the trails right as the police were pulling in.

Enjoy the video, sound did't upload, but there wasn't much, it's quiet.

Brake switches from Luna Cycles.

Thanks to... spinningmagnets & DingusMcGee for the input. Upon looking closer at the product photo from Luna it appears the magnets have holes in them. The holes looks too small for a screw so I was thinking the hole may be to pass the brake cable through it. The other part is a plug in wire to the ...

LA ebke cyclone motor mount, 3D printed mount

I didn't bother with the stock motor mount from the start. Picked up the LA ebike mount. Side plates are the same thickness as stock 3 and 5 mm, but 4 screws each not 2. But the solid chunk of aluminum makes for a solid mount for sure. It's pricey but, I know when I can't do better vs. time trying, ...
