I've used inner tube to achieve a similar result. yeah yeah I know, another recycled use for themGCinDC wrote:oh, i'm using ebikes.ca stretchy sleeve to cover the wires in a couple places - is that what you're asking about? i highly recommend it!
Don't I know about that all too well!left the wife alone w/ three kids for the better part of saturday and paid bigtime sat night/sunday..
cool. thanks, D! you'll see in the second jump that the bottom fell out on me. not sure if it some dirt caved in on the top ledge (which was easily 3', btw, even tho it only looks like 14"), or the extra motor weight i'm not used to. i usually always try to land evenly on two wheels. and if i was on pavement, i would have surely wiped, cause when the bottom dropped, my grip caused the throttle to rev and it tried to buck me when i landed. not used to the grip of the fat ass cheapo chinese throttle, which i should have swapped with my magura...deecanio wrote:You could give yourself a bit more cockpit room with a laid back seat post

It takes a bit of time to get used to the different geometry - those bikes are designed for DH after all. Just keep riding itGCinDC wrote:and i'm not even sure how i feel about the bike yet! some reflections:
- it's smaller than i'd like for sure; i feel a bit scrunched
- when i stand, i'm so much further forward that a nasty regen burp would eject me. wrist position is not ideal
- gotta move the seat back for starters - feels like a chopper w/ ape hangers compared to the GT
- riding the road w/ nobbies is weird too - i don't plan to do so much but love them in the rough after stuck w/ slicks for street for so long
- mid-suspension stop is still a bit weird but will play w/ too, if not change straight away. sag might be about 3" right now. curious how 500lb spring feels...

this is a somewhat costly way to have a conversation with you, for me at least...Hyena wrote:I'll save me having to type "told ya so!" every few pages
i jb welded the suckers in to prevent dislodging, but that was rather short sighted of me, as usual...Hyena wrote:Heat alone is enough to screw them - either thermally killing the hall itself or physically having them dislodge by melting the glue that holds them in.
yea im starting to get seriously worried about my own HT... after seeing one with a popped axle etc its not really confidence inspiring... time for on-frame motors!knoxie wrote:Hi G
Nice work on the bike man! and nice drops however it was funny you know last night I was watching the video thinking that's cool but I wonder how long that thing will stay together with all that power and off road rough stuff? Sensorless would be a good call I reckon for off roading, you of course still have the problem that the magnets can come loose with all the heat and vibration, not to mention the stress on the axle from the jumps (pretty sure with my weight I would pop an axle on one of these) ..........................
