Re: Giant NRS/Mac hub/48v Headway build.

Hyena, I'm not sure about the stock wires, nothing written on them, pretty lite on though. I decided to do some upgrades on the keys and the sun gear pins after reading Mark_A_W's problems with these two areas. I had to pull the wires out of the axle and start again unfortunately. To stop the keys f...

Re: Giant NRS/Mac hub/48v Headway build.

Did you take the piece off shown in the third photo, there is a circlip behind that?
Undo the 6 screws and pull it off to access the circlip.
Cheers,

Re: Giant NRS/Mac hub/48v Headway build.

It should be in contact with the bearing. Nice work with the axle! What current will you be running? Which bearing? The large one in the middle or one of the side ones? I will keep the amps mild with the nylon gears and will crank it up when/if the Mac manufacturers come up with stronger gears. Cel...

Re: Giant NRS/Mac hub/48v Headway build.

My Mac hub arrived from Cellman, easy trouble free transaction, great packaging, cheers Paul. I decided to run some heavier phase wires so melting won't ever be a problem. I wanted to run 10AWG and realised this is too hard to do with the space in the axle so I drilled the other side of the axle to ...

Re: Giant NRS/Mac hub/48v Headway build.

Hey TMaster thanks heaps for the tip. Did your frame have obvious side play/slop in the bushings? I have given mine a fairly good side push and pull and can't seem to feel any play however I haven't riden it. The guy I got the frame off thinks the shock needs rebound seals so I was wondering if othe...

Re: Giant NRS/Mac hub/48v Headway build.

Nice! That frame stripped of everything but the shock would Ebay for $250 for sure, if not $400. Very nice work fitting 12s in the frame. It's not as easy as some think, once you realize how much space the pedals use up. For me, putting headways in crossways to the frame would be way too wide. But ...

Re: Giant NRS/Mac hub/48v Headway build.

G'day 1000w, Does this remind you of anything? What's this 'clear plastic' you're using, perspex or PC? How are you wiring the BMS to the pack? I've spent quite a lot of time trying to hook up mine, its a b!#ch of a job.. Well done full-throttle, it was your thread where I got the idea. I'm not sur...

Giant NRS/Mac hub/48v Headway now A123 build

This is my lastest new build and will be a little along the lines of Mark_A_W's fine set up. I am looking for a little more stealth than my cruiser build. I will use 16 x10Ah Headway cells (53volts) I split my 20Ah pack from the cruiser in half, a Lyen infinion controller, and a 500w Mac. I traded a...

Hey Kim tried to call you on Friday, bummer about the Lipos. Will be in touch soon. Funny about the fire department. They are uneducated on lithium, apparently. Plain water puts out lithium better than anything else I know of. If course that may not apply to every lithium chemistry, though. Matt lit...

Matt waved the Police to stop, he asked if there was a problem That's keen, I don't think I'd invite the scrutiny knowing that it was well over the legal limit if they decided to enforce it! It sounds like they were cool cops though which is good. I had a cop pull me over a few years back and asked...

Re: Which gear in a 3 speed hub is strongest?

In the SA, the planetary is always meshed and rotating during operation, but it has no load when 2nd gear is engaged. 1st and 3rd require the sun to be intact to operate; so with a stripped sun, 2nd can still work, but there might be some noise from the planetary. If a broken tooth from the planets...

I think 2nd is the stongest, because like others have said it is just a direct lockup like a free wheel. My Sturmey Archer is now making horrible mechanical noises in 3rd and particularly bad noises in 1st but continues to run well in 2nd. I will open it up soon and investigate, I will post what I f...
