Nearing time to store away my Comfort Cruiser.
Just hit 6000 miles, still in beautiful shape and don't want to slop it through any snow (salted snow specifically).
Rejuvenating my 2009 Comfort Cruiser
for fair road conditions ...
At 9000+ miles (XYD-16) motor replacement seems desirable, jerky starts, especially in cold weather, seems to indicate sticky or poor pressure from worn brushes, haven't ordered replacements yet. Will retire motor until Winter allows plenty of spare time for disassembly , diagnosis and repair - have MY1018z needing similar service (8000+ miles). "Sadly", my restraint and reasonable voltage seems to have prolonged motor life to a respectable age.
Transferring geared down (22T freewheel) 12ga spoked wheel to Snow Beast and spare 20T freewheeled wheel to Cruiser.
Need to find full fenders that cover the big Schwinn Cruiser tires.
2009 Trailz LS used an oddball lock on the battery packs will finally replace with the standard keyed that all the rest use!
and my 2008 Snow Beast
(~5000 miles) for the Ice and Snow.
Needs Lube and tune.
Will inspect and likely replace all cables.
Full-extended fenders - to keep the slush off my toes!
Will mount 22T geared 12ga wheel build
Build 33.3V 31.2Ah battery in eZip pack from NOS (tested and rated) Sony and Sanyo cells.
Build 33.3V 19.28Ah Hybrid Lipo + RC Lipo in eZip pack
(Now have 4 - 33.3-37V compatible eZips 3 are 24-37V capable)
Volted up and geared down for better torque ...
9-22T @ 33.3V looks to provide a substantial torque improvement while maintaining a "legal" 20mph limitation.
Initial torque looks to be ~175% improvement over my 25.9V 16T builds and acceleration torque, beyond load, nears 200% @ ~18mph!
Should greatly improve slogging through slush and snow ... hills too!
Might become my new "standard" if 33.3V batteries in oem packs work out ...
