Paint, specifically 'plastidip' rubberized spray (you know to trap all the heat in the motor...)
Lined the edge with tape, so that just the center and spokes get sprayed, gives it a unique look
This is my attempt at the front rim, two cans used
Came up great.
It'll be the same as when you rode my fighter. Hold a button (or ebrake lever) and after a split second delay the bike pulls up with a set amount of force. On loose gravel like sections of the goat track it'll work like ABS to not skid the wheel which is handy.
Personally I wouldn't use regen in a race situation though. I use it all the time in general riding but when I'm really riding hard like on fast tight single track I just use the mechanical brakes as I need instant response and also that modulation, with the ability to lock the back wheel momentarily to skid steer too.
Yeaarrrh, I know but see what happen to your fighter when I used regen, blew the front tire!
Yeah I've ridden bikes with it a few times, but not for extended periods or around a track.
My synopsis is it slows you down and heats your motor, but the fact that I would trigger regen using my front brake cut out leaves some questioning over ride control. I can just have something like this so that I'm that front and rear are independent.
Even when everything is perfect, the oscillation it just impossible to overcome....
Thinking I just spec the bike for the race considering I'm scheduled to fly out a few days later, I'll deal with it when I return and have a CST to toy with.
Will be the third motor on this bike
