Re: Bike Was Stolen 😤 Time For An Upgrade 😎

This is mostly a DIY forum so i hope you expect this very predictable answer.. Check out the CYC Pro X2 or it's little brother.. very light.. very high power.. very high efficiency drive for any conversion.. loads better than a BBSHD and pretty much every other mid drive. And also instead of buying ...

Re: one stop shop electric car motors plus?

Actually it's a bit difficult to find a good supplier i found. cloud electric and electricmotorsport may be the closest things for conversions. Like the ebike world.. the electric car conversion market isn't so hot these days because so many commercial EVs are available. Yet using older car chassis ...

Re: High performance & durability Cannondale Semi Recumbent

OK, called Cannondale. They had an engineer that owned a Bent II and said the ~2002 swingarm fits. The 2003+, which looks like a bit stronger design doesn't fit according to them. Off to ebay/pinkbike to buy a jekyll frame. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgre...

Re: E-bike mid-drive motors hardly outperforms hub motors

Yeah. I've experimented with every drive system available other than RC rear chain drives. Nothing wins as a general purpose drive. Each one has upsides and downsides. I thought dual reduction geared hubs might have settled the debate, but every one on the market has severe heat shedding limitations...

Re: E-bike mid-drive motors hardly outperforms hub motors

Speeding up and slowing down a 14 lb motor takes a lot more energy vs spinning a relatively small hub motor and its gear reductions. Not really. The rotating mass of a DD hub is a magnet ring and case. The rotating mass of a small geared hub is gears, a clutch, the case, maybe an inrunner stator, e...

Re: Ebike Conversions Breaking Forks

Shame that you didn't get the memo from the vendor that you needed them. A front fork without torque arms can't hold much more than a few hundred watts for long. You need torque arms on the rear too when getting into higher power levels. Bicycles were not designed with this level of power in mind an...

I think I’ll lower that top speed to 70-80 km/h. Just enough that I don’t get cars harassing me to get off the highway.
Are you aware that you'd get busted pretty fast in your country for doing that?

Re: E-bike mid-drive motors hardly outperforms hub motors

It's a fallacy to think 10spd chains are weaker. If you actually look at their ratings the 10 and 11spd are stronger than the older designs. The only difference is the plate thickness and that isn't where chains wear, it's in the rollers. Chain line and staying in the larger cogs is how you save dr...

Would certainly like to see how these motors stack up to the MAC.... which is still one of my favorite motors.

100% of my furniture breaks down to fit inside a small car. Including my bed frame.
It was all purchased specifically as such.
I once had to haul a couch in a little suzuki wagon with a 1.6 liter engine.
other than that, no need for a large vehicle here.
