thanks Rix. yes, Dubai is surreal in terms of buildings, cars, wealth - amazing place.

I may have the possibility of actually moving to San Francisco early next year - only a possibility at this stage, long way to go. Here's hoping! The idea of riding around in your National Parks...
If you get over to Frisco, we will hook up for a ride. The half way point between there and where I live is the west side of Lake Tahoe. Lots of riding.

Good luck. Lots of people moving from the Bay due to the rental crisis. Be prepared to shell out the equiv of buying a bomber every 2-3 months.

Yip, I had a look- rentals seem extreme. It would be closer to Silicon Valley, but rentals don't seem much better there. Looking forward to possibly being a "legal alien" - never knew what Sting was singing about until now!

Hey, thats why you got East Oakland. More affordable. But, you still may be shelling out the equivalent of a Bomber every 2-3 months to replace your stolen Bombers :lol:

Probably.. But even in East Oaktown people are paying $1500-2500 according to zillow.com

After my rent went up to $3400 in San Mateo, I moved down to Sunnyvale for $2700 that went up to $3200 2 years later. After that hike, I knew it was sadly time to leave the bay. But the best part is I'm working remote for a consulting agency in San Jose here in Oregon making SV wages, giving me the ability to get a new bomber in rent savings every year if needed.

Speaking off, anything new on the market made here in the states yet worth a sh*t ?

Hey Sam, that would be great - very funny if it actually comes off! We could visit that place in Yosemite where Hyena almost stacked it - personally, I think my grandmother could have taken that corner, but that's just me... :D :D

Zillow was what I used to have a look at how little there was that was suitable, in a sensible budget range - how far is Portola National Park/ La Honda realistically in the traffic from SV? Nice to work in a cheaper place...

HPC has their Revolution Ebike. Made of aluminum, 80 pounds 6 kw, killed 3 stones with 1 bird and blah blah blah. Problem is, in the past I have referred people to them for plug-n-ride options as building your own pack isn't a task for noobs. Every person I know has had problems with the HPC stuff. Korpin on the Phasor thread had HPC handle the assembly of his Phasor. First 18 months he had it, nothing but problems. Then when Korpin finally sorted out all of the issues, he sold his Phasor. HPC can build good stuff, question is, how many times will it take them?

I'm from gas dirt bikes :D :mrgreen:
This post is to inform all of you that my Bomber in dirt bike mode is fast almost as it was mi Suzuki DR 350 15 years ago. This is true in the narrow trails I have around home.
Now that my rear spring is much more pre loaded than wen I started riding the bike and the Domino throttle gives me a very smooth power delivery the Bomber is super fast and the most fun dirt bike I've ever rode.
The only downside is that at 10KW the stock 5403 hub motor reach 125°C in few minutes (Max-e mosfets at 40°C) of hard bashing and fortunately the Max-e controller lower the power to the motor.
But my new motor should solve the problem .... at least I hope so :mrgreen: I'm waiting for a QS 205 30*4T 11.5 kv that I will lace to a Holmes MMP 19X1.6 MC rim that is coming too :D

Yeah I know that problem with overheating hubs motors. Not by personal experience but more by videos like a speedtest on a qulbix raptor bike. :)

Just answering a question, I am a dedicated Stealth/FLX guy myself.

Grande Allesagio, you should considering oil cooling your next hub motor. If done correctly, messiness is very minimal. Emmett has had much success with it on his little H40.

This is the thread but it seems sold out : https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewt ... =9&t=72830

Another option is here: http://www.electricmotorsport.com/domin ... witch.html

This is the wiring I have, but I guess should work with stock Bomber controller also: https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewt ... 5#p1121567

Hey Stealth Guys,

I am trying to find photos of a bike (I think it was Bomber, but MAYBE a fighter) that had footpegs that were welded to a plate. That plate then attached to the side cover bolt holes. This allowed the owner's kid to have footpegs near the front of the frame when sitting on it between the adult and the bars. I remember seeing it for sale on eBay about a year ago but I can't find any trace of it on Stealth forums or eBay. Anyone remember this bike?

I am trying to copy the idea for my raptor and would like to see photos of it again to get some ideas. I just can't find it!

Cheers,

Mammalian
