Usually Artur is really quick to response to PM, have you tried that? It could be ha is just swamped with work as he got new frames, new bikes and also are working on getting the Sur-Ron to Europe and road legal. I am sure he will get back to the minute he got some free time.

on video on first page how did you measure 120A on battery with Uni-T UT203? This clamp meter measure only Alternating current (AC) On battery you have DC.

Man this is tempting at these prices...so the light frame is $321 in the sale?

Can you tell me please:

Can the bottom bracket accept a standard ISIS 148 threaded bottom bracket?

What angle is the head tube set to? edit: found that on your site.

How long is the swingarm/rear triangle from the centre of the bottom bracket to dropout centre?

What's the widest rear tyre that can fit?

How much is postage to the UK and estimated delivery time?

Thanks Artur

Good man, thank you. I need to work out what modifications I need to do to get my mid drive to fit before I go ahead.

Are there any better pictures of the bottom bracket and where it attaches to the frame?

Hi Artur,

I notice in this video you have added extra dropout plates to take 6kw ? I added the 10mm plates so all up 16mm wide, are those the same plates you sent me ? im also thinking i may drill and tap across the 10mm one to add extra holding power. I just did 50klms over the weekend with 6.5kw with no plate movement. What are your recommendations for 9kw ? I like the idea of this lite frame and high power. are you now shipping with the extra plates ? Are they the Typhoon plates ? I noticed the typhoon plates have the cross bolt for more holding power. long as two bolts are enough to hold at the top, im actually thinking i may just weld mine.

What batteries are you using to get 6.5kw of power in a lite frame? What are you planning to use to get 9kw?

Currently using 4x4s 20ah multistar @ 100 amps , 220 phase on a 5T mxus. This puts the multistar at 5c max, no real strain for those. I saw about half a volt sag. Plan on swapping out two 4s and popping two 6s in for 20s @ 120 amps. I used to run 145v @ 80amps for 12kw. It fu$&$king hauls ass and pull hard to 65kmh, but tell you the truth 10kw is the max the mxus will use, after that it's heat. Plus 3 hard pulls and you hit 120c pretty quick. I suspect this frame will take larger hubs, I was able to flex the rear dropouts pretty easy. Artur may have fitted wider hubs ? Question is what is the frame itself capable of kw wise ?

thank you, I still cant quite see the main pivot point from top down, it looks very slim from the angles I see but that may not be the case...

Good to know 20s 20ah multistars can fit into the Lite frame. I think that's what I'm going to do when I order mine. I was running my 3t mxus on 18s 17ah tesla cells, the top speed was good but really saggy. I was thinking Samsung 30Qs but I don't know if enough in parallel would fit into the Lite frame for the power I want.

we just did 20s7p battery :)

about dropout plates - welding is the best. it is not the kw it can hold but the torque, i will test ! :)

I will make more pics!

Can I get a raincheck?? I'm still waiting for the light frame and midi-e I ordered back in July. I'm hoping my order is priority since I've been waiting so long. Some of my friends were interested in the frame and me building them a bike but first they want to see me actually get mine. I do appreciate the quick email responses but I don't feel you have any sense of urgency for a customer who has been patiently waiting for so long!

Hello Tommy,
I think it is not full story you are writing here about your order. Maybe you can tell to other why you didn't receive your order yet? I think it is fair to give you one more chance to tell story right :-)
P.s. sure you are in priority and we will send ONE MORE ordered items tomorrow.
Best regards,
Artur Ragulskyi

Hi Artur,
I'm sorry it is not a complete story I will complete better. I placed the order back in July for a light frame and midi e. The order was ready and shipped out to me in NY before at the end of July. As of August 8th the parcel tracking became stagnant and I began to worry. I emailed you a few weeks later and you said it was normal. I emailed you again a month later and expressed my concern and you said you would write dhl. I tried contacting on my end but no luck. another month went by and you were still waiting for their response. Another two weeks and you said they refunded you and order would be sent soon. It's almost another two weeks and I see this sale going on and I want to be a part of it but am hesitant to send more money. You have responded quickly to any email and have been very professional which has kept me from worrying too much. It's just been a long time and I'm happy to know I'm priority. Looking forward to an excellent product and will post pictures of my build.
Tommy

Thank you for adding this info. I will explain why it took so long to get the money back. We contacted DHL as only you told us, they say it is all ok if some package travel up to 2 month O_O
I was emailing them again in 1 week and every week so on. After 3 weeks they agree it is lost and said they start investigation, I collect all documents they asked and send them.
Again I was emailing them every week after with no response from DHL side.
Then without any answer they transferred 500euro and shipping cost to my bank. (2 weeks ago).
I have ordered new frame to you right after. Now I will add money as you understand 500 is less what you paid and it cost.
Hope to send it tomorrow, this time with more expensive insurance.
I feel your pain, always trying to put myself on a client place. Thank you for understanding !
I will also will offer you discount from your next offer to compensate somehow this waiting time :-)

Thanks Artur
I appreciate your efforts. Now looking at your side I see your frustrations as well. I think you have the best light frame available especially with the addition of larger dropouts. I'm sure it will be worth the wait :D

depends on how you act on street.

60kg big bike pedaling with 25-30kph silent and respectfully through the traffic and pedestrians
or
30kg modded DH bike with 3KW mid-drive running with 60kph thru the traffic jumping stairs between pedestrians

there will be cops that dont care if you ride a big monster
and others catch you out because he knows ALL 205 size motors are pretty illegal. even you are running only 500w peaks on a folding bike.
