A wide variety of full-face Bike helmets are readily available (do an eBay search), but be aware that very few offer a level protection that is adequate for ebike speeds.

If it "didn't let you down," you are saying you have had a crash in this helmet, and it protected you. Pics Please.

Also note this quote from another rider, who likes it, but adds "I imagine a hard hit on asphalt will destroy the chin guard."

Nothing wrong with a lightweight helmet, as long as you are using it for lightweight duty and need lightweight protection. Don't expect to do a 25mph face plant wearing one of these on the street, and not be picking teeth out of the back of your throat.

I recon the helmet can handle 25mph crash. given its a car you crash into not a concrete.
I say haven't let me down cos i used to have DH helmet and it was so heavy and keeps moisture inside nd it didnt do good job on hearing cars either.
This helmet is definitely not made for ebikers (30+mph) but its sth worth having and I find it safer since I can hear the cars around the corner or behind me. With motor cycle helmet, you wont be able to hear street sound at all!

I think the ebike community has created a market for a new type of helmet, something in between a standard bicycle helmet and a motorbike helmet, well that's what I would want going at those speeds.
I've got this full face helmet which are just like what you just described!

Good grief that is a awesome helmet!
That's exactly what I want to be wearing on my meager ebike at max speed of 40km/h. When I am at max speed I start thinking sure the top of my head should be ok at this speed but I feel I am going to loose the bottom half of my face.
Not cheap though at about $185. Where are the Chinese grey market copycats when you need them.

That's one crazy badass looking light! I do have a pretty strong light but this is one step too far to use on the road...
I love it but then it's not worth buying for me :mrgreen:

I'm currently building ebike (48v 1500w) for my friend and I was wondering if anyone got hall sensors (3) I can buy?
the build is not so fast conhis motor that i used to have (needs fixing and wires...). shouldnt take too long to build it!
Let me know if anyone got spare hall sensors to sell for me please!!

also the update!
I found a small crack on my front tire the other day...not sure if its worth buying a new front tire or not....
IMG-20121118-01105.jpg
crack on the tire
Also while cycling I heard sound clinking sound which I couldn’t figure out but it turns out to be broken spoke...
It seems like just snapped off...I've already made orders of 36 12g stainless spokes from holmeshobbies.com looking forward to get it!

I haven't fixed up the spokes (new spokes hasn't arrived yet) but not too much of a problem to cycle for a week. So here is a new video in London :wink:
I'll try and find more interesting place to mount the camera soon(waiting for different mounting kit from ebay)

Slightly unrelated but I've been working on my friend's Ebike build and I'm using my old gm motor.
I got new 8" gear puller and started fixing and cleaning the hub.

Its been a while since my last post but here are some updates and news!
I've successfully completed ebike for my friend, here are some pictures!
I dont have picture of the bike before I made it but its simple model so you can imagine what it was like :D

Also, I've got upgrade to my front fork! (Finally! :mrgreen: ). I used to have rockshox dart3 (ok fork, the best thing about it was I never needed to look after it :p)
I now have Fox 32 Talas 140 RL (got it serviced last week). here are some pics from the upgrade!

I'll make some new video once weather gets better. hopefully I can get new angle of the ride! (i've recently purchased more camera mounts so I can fit the camera anywhere on the bike!)

It has started to snow heavily in uk and I dont want to spend so much on snow tire....

SO! :!: :!: Here is what I DID!!! :mrgreen:
IMG-20130118-01264.jpg
zip tires
Its just few zip ties tide around the tire. This creates slit between the layers of snow which causes snow to not stick to your tire thus increase the grip while normal tire just get covered in snow after few meters.

I've got my first video finally out! Took me a long time to get out there in cold and snow but finally got something from snowish london view! :D
Unfortunately I couldn’t get different camera views added but this video is the first one since i've upgraded my front fork to Fox Talas!

Enjoy!

informative build indeed...
how much is your actual range? does it have a good hill climbing?
thanks - im researching for my 2nd build and considering same motor as yours.

I'm glad my build thread is helping others :)
so far I've done about 60 cycles on my battery packs, 1500miles so...quick calculation tells me I do an average of 24miles on a charge.
I do have quite steep hill near by and I can go up as fast as 30-35mph but I do have 52t/11t combo so I can pedal up to 40mph which is very helpful when I need to go up the hill or go faster then 45mph. :mrgreen:
I personally have no regret by getting this motor considering how reliable its been and every time i ride after the full charge it feels so good!!

I've decided to do a MASSIVE up grade by changing this bike to new frame!
I've picked FS bike frame already and got it(picture will be posted soon!). now, I've got many new parts coming in soon but one problem.
I want to have 52T triple chainring on front BUT rear swingarm is in my way therefore I can not fit 52t ring. like this:

if you havent already get a dnp 11t - 28t free wheel @ebikes.ca or otherwise. losing 3 teeth at the rear is upping the ratio more than 10 at the cranks.Other wise you need a bb with a longer spindle.

just read a couple of posts back, i realise now you already have the smallest rear chain ring.
