Re: Hyena's super awesome isolated high current balance char

Yes had my unit for about a month now and can report great things too, its so fast the packs are always balanced 100% not only that but if you want to boost the pack in your lunch break or whilst out on a ride it levels the pack off really quickly whilst charging too so you can unplug and use a bala...

He called me a cheater.. lol :wink: My answer to the your a cheater statement is no driving a car is cheating! ha ha, using an electric power...

Re: Armstrong stops fighting doping charges

I agree even if Lance was doping at the time so many of the other riders were as well that he was still better even if he was doping,I dont think they should strip him of his titles unless they can prove it, its unfair IMHO and I still have a massive amount of respect for a person who can almost die...

Re: E-biker Rage

It annoys me in the same way, usually because car drivers don't realise that I'm usually going to out accelerate them away from lights, especially if I'm ahead of them on the cyclists ASL at the lights, so they then need to overtake me properly when they catch me up, not just drive me into the gutt...

Re: E-biker Rage

Yep This happens to me all the time too, it seems car drivers dont seem to expect that a cyclist might overtake another cyclist? in the UK they are supposed to give a cars width when they overtake so the driver must be in the wrong here, I generally dont get the hump with drivers that pull out on me...

Re: Strange clicking sound in hub motor

Yes I am thinking either rotor magnet damage or a piece of something between the rotor and the stator, should be fairly obvious by splitting the drive but understand thats not for everyone to go ahead and do, maybe contact the supplier.

Re: Strange clicking sound in hub motor

it will most likely be the one way bearing or possibly the rotor as it only makes a sound when the motor drives.

Re: Plastic planetary gear grease suggestion?

:lol: the attack on the gears will only come from how he uses the throttle, I have gouped all my motors in std engine grease for over 5 years or so with no probs, the one way bearings tend to be the weak spot from my experience, too much grease isnt good though

Re: Plastic planetary gear grease suggestion?

you can use any grease to be honest, you dont need much though less is more 8) nylon gears are self lubricating anyway but a little dab of grease is a good idea.

Re: breaking 35 mph?

Just my 2 cents here I think that 30mph on that bike is more than fast enough, to get your speed up and over 35mph it requires a significant increase in power and trust me cars will still pass you even when you are doing 35mph! it makes no difference cars see a bike and they think overtake...overtak...

The Problem with the RD32 is the Codec it uses on the video side its terrible,buggy and not supported by hardly any video editing programs meaning you have to convert the clips (if you can) to something suitable first (check the techmoan review of this camera on youtube) you can pick up a Gopro HD h...

Re: Why Use a 2 Stroke Bike as the pace bike at the olympics

I think the theme they were trying to portray there was nothing more than displaying what we were once like during the start of the industrial revolution, I will agree though that at times the ceremony was a little over the top but then many are arent they. My point is just that it seems ridiculous ...
