Re: Mid monster/Hub monster powered cruiser in mind, seek ad

John :arrow: Haha I see what you mean! Ok so it's better for me to go with a street type fork. By fat tyres youg ot it right, I like both the "big meat" look of some motorcycle tires and the fat pedal bikes tyres too. I was wondering if the fat ones were reliable at high speed but I'm not really sur...

Re: Mid monster/Hub monster powered cruiser in mind, seek ad

John thank you for the detailed explanation again. As for the controllers I'll wait for your tests, I'm not in a hurry. Heat-production wise, electric motors are not that much different from gas engines. You need to get the optimal temperature to get most power and compression from the engine. At co...

Re: Mid monster/Hub monster powered cruiser in mind, seek ad

Don't be sorry your like a teacher and I think that's what most of guys here including myself need ! Thank you for the numbers I'll follow this route for my build. Are the controllers in my initial post ok for the high voltage you recommend or should I search for another model ? I recall 72-100v was...

Re: Mid monster/Hub monster powered cruiser in mind, seek ad

Sure I can cut the rim myself, by "out of the box" I was referring to the sealed state you were talking about. I'll wait for your results to see how much AL can be removed before trying anything else than cutting the rim though, better not waste a fine housing by lack of knowledge. Smoothness is a n...

Re: Mid monster/Hub monster powered cruiser in mind, seek ad

Ok so I can start with the "off the box" sealed motor and only if improvements are needed should I unseal it, given that it is not much of a threat as it spins too fast to get damaging objects to enter it. Thanks for your input guys :wink: and thanks for the build link and sprocket trick Bluefang! I...

Re: Mid monster/Hub monster powered cruiser in mind, seek ad

John That's good news, even better overall power from the hub then :D I trust your hubs, for having seen some threads here with your units you can't be wrong. I prefer "overengineering" than "underengineering", a stronger unit gives you room to make upgrades or even allow to forgive mistakes. You go...

Re: Mid monster/Hub monster powered cruiser in mind, seek ad

Izeman :arrow: You're totally right I need to redesign the seat supports. I need too to check these Leaf Cells, I don't know what it's worth for and I see lots of good review on it. I'll re-sketch it by taking the seat support in account and also the frontal weight as John said, incoming shortly! Jo...

By the way your Kona and your Klein are awesome builds ! How did you set the rear suspension in the Kona ? Spring load etc? How much does it weight ?

Re: Mid monster/Hub monster powered cruiser in mind, seek ad

Hi Izeman thank you for your detailed reply ! About the raw materials I have an easier access to Alu and steel than chrome moly, same for the machining I can put a "one single piece" frame. My hills might not be at 35% (in another thread I saw a guy posting pictures of his location with 30%, it's wa...

Re: Mid monster/Hub monster powered cruiser in mind, seek ad

Macribs --> Thanks for the interest ! John --> It's a pleasure to get you as first answer. I did some measures on my way to work this morning, hills were ranging from 5 to 20 degrees. Range is not the main goal because I commute under 30km (including parking time when I search a spot), longer trips ...

Re: What's a good e bike headlight?

Dear friends I will just remind you my recommendation again regarding headlights coming from the Italian industry of 80-90s, back then Piaggio (Italian manufacturer) was having scooter models with the product se...
