just beefed up the welding on the front BB to the chainstays.
After that drove again.
I noticed that I push the rearwheel on the chainside to the front if I pedal hard enough, thats why I get
a loose jumping chain.
At the moment this bike is singlespeed with a very high gear, so problem solved when mounting my IGH-wheel finally.
Bike rides very good, as said, but no freehand-riding possible 'cause the headtube-angle is to steep now
from that cutting and welding the seatstays for getting more ground-clearance.
No need to go freehand
Here it is with attached chain:
After that playing a bit with possibilities and another saddle:
So for the moment all welding is done.
What needs to be done:
- make a cargo-"surfoard" from wood with mountings
- get better stuff on the bike like steering-bar, lights etc.
- decide which Motor to use
For the motor-decision i would appreciate your brainstorming, too.
What I have around is:
- already laced front-hubmotor, geared
- unlaced rear-hub motor, geared
- a somehow defective panasonic middrive i am sure i can fix
- a dd rear-hubmotor
Because of the steep hills here I won't use the dd, and the geared rear-hubmotor I don't like for not beeing able to use an IGH.
I think best would be to go first with the fronthub until I have repaired the middrive.
The middrive I've been told that the torque-sensor would be defective.
Even if I can change it I would not have the ready to go on display, because the one on the picture is for later models and has other connectors.
Haven't looked around if it would possibly fit when I use the right connectors or connect just the right cables up.
I have a spare Lyen MiniMonster liying around, so I would rather try to controll it with this.
Is this possible for the middrive has an brushless Inrunner?
Are the halls required for Inrunners to work or will it work without problems as it does on Outrunners?
I will see
Edit: Forgot, in this state the bike weighs in at 16,8 kg or around 37 lbs.
