Looks cool with the battery showing thru the side panel, be careful of a short! would hate to try to pull that battery out in flames! I always think of that when there are 10x screws locking it in place inside the frame.

I'm sure its a ton of fun with that controller, but make sure you have enough power when you go to buy a mini replacement, maybe a KBSX72151X

i bonded the cells to a caddy which is a precise fit inside the vector's compartment. then i placed a few strips of rubber foam so that when you screw the metal cover it holds the pack in place to keep it from sliding forward.

i now like to build packs w/ open sides for ventilation. but i'll definitely reinstall the vector's side covers when i'm done testing...

those are the volcanic sands coughed up by Mt. Pinatubo in the early 90's (which cooled the earth by about a degree). this hub does well on pavement and hardpack. but terrible off-road :lol: so it's never going to replace my BHT bike

btw the caliper mount on the Vector is a bit wonky. requires a weird combination of adapters to get the alignment right

new custom crankset w/ short 152mm arms. i'm getting pedal strikes w/ the "normal" 175mm arms. also added a 48t chainring because 152mm cranks NEVER come w/ 48t :lol:

short arms ideal for ghost pedaling :lol:

the 26" front wheel was too big so i went 24". this dropped the axle height so i needed a longer fork to maintain the same geometry. good thing i got a marzocchi dropoff triple, lying around
