Re: Worth it to get a “premium” FS bike for ebike build?

Re: Worth it to get a “premium” FS bike for ebike build?

Awesome analogy. I am slowing down. Sometimes ;) I would like to try a midrive . Mostly for the handling/ride. And from an electricians perspective keeping the motor in it's happy place / rpm.

Re: why is my stand stripping the plate that holds apart

It looks like it is about to rip off the frame. I would get a piece of steel about 1/8 inch thick and make it wide enough to drill 8 holes and mount with ubolts. If this won't be too wide and hang up on something. Since the weight is pushing up you "might" get away with riveting or bolting/screwing ...

Updated battery info 33g & questions

Hey guys/gals. Been awhile so I am out of the loop on good batteries for ebike. I want a packaged batt - Maybe one that is removable. I am running a 9 continent on the old FSR . I am going to un-modify :) the shunt for 20-25 amps and thinking going 36 volt. I am getting this to take camping. We neve...

Re: First ebike build, damned uncomfortable

Hate to say it but it sounds like that frame is just too small for you. :| Moving the bottom bracket is not even doable that I know of. A shorter stem would help. I noticed that right away-it is long. Look for a bike that has larger tire/rims. Relacing that hub in a wheel for a truly comfortable bik...

In my contract with AT&T if you go over you get overage charges but we set it up to warn before that happens.

Re: smartphones in US now unlocked, what next?

I would say it depends which carrier has the best coverage in your area. I had an AT&T phone in Western Wash. and it sucked :cry: I picked up a unlocked Verizon and it worked great [ both on Net-10 ] then I switched back to an AT&T unlocked phone when I got back to Ks. Maybe that is why they dropped...

Yes it will. Mine never quit like some . I only switched because I woke up one morning and had no service. They had a "problem" running my card. I had it set up on a auto refill for 2 yrs. I spent 2 days and countless hours on the phone trying get my number back. I used this number for my business f...

Re: smartphones in US now unlocked, what next?

I first used a smartphone a couple yrs. ago for a job. As soon I started my business I picked up an unlocked phone and put it on Net-10. Since then I am on my fourth phone I think. I dumped Net-10 for AT&T when they "lost" my number. The no contract service is cheap but you get what you pay for. lon...

I have 2 -2810 = low speed winding motors . One in 20" and one in 26" If I run the 26 @ 50v and the 20 @ 60 volts they are neck and neck at top speed. The 20 has a nice advantage off the line though. I think they run 24 mph. If my speedo is calibrated right. Mine is in a YPedal Zero rim also. Spokes...

Re: Hacking a Couple Stromer ST1's

That is a nice surprise that it is so clean inside. :shock: Starting with the sand in crevices in the batt comp. and the corrosion on the motor and wheels I thought sure you might find some nasties inside. Appears someone road it into the ground/no cleaning till it died.. :?
