Forgot to post this here the other day.


I should do a few videos of my work commutes. They may sound boring, but I purposefully commute through the bush (forest) most of the time for enjoyment. The 2 videos above are both from commutes to/from work...in fact the kangaroo and this river crossing were on the same day. :lol: :roll:

Cheers

Went for an amazing ride on the weekend to check out where the electrons for my Fighter come from. :D
Here:https://goo.gl/maps/70ufn

This Solar farm only got built this year, so pretty new still. :)

I was riding to explore and for enjoyment more than making the video so the footage is all from the handlebars, but the scenery was amazing enough to make half decent video from. :)

If people want me to make a better video of the area, I'll more than happily bump it up the priority list. :)

Cheers

Nice videos, Cowardlyducks!

As the new owner of a Fighter, many thanks from me for posting about your bike. It helped me make the decision to jump into Stealth ownership.

Hey thanks Sam. I'm glad you appreciate these videos. :) The Fighter really does expand the ability to explore which is what I like most about it. :)

I have many idea's for other video's I can make. I think soon I will do a montage of all my wildlife encounters as I seem to have quite a few.

Cheers

You really need to get a Lilly cam....

I think it's the view we all want to see in your videos :D

Totally agree...maybe for Christmas. :)

I should be able to make some more vids later this year...I think I'll have the bike back up and running finally in a few weeks. :)

I got my forced and passively cooled controller mounted today. :)

That's thermal padding in case your wondering.

This thing should rip it up and keep cool once I get going!

That looks awesome bud.

You need to bring it down and do dead horse gap and Cascades. I really love the red behind the holes in the hub..

Maybe some red or blue Leds in there would look call in low light 8)

Looks soooo cool

Hey Blake where did you get the thermal padding from?

Does it transfer heat well?

Cheers Kiwi

It's from here:
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/121310196991
This stuff is 5W/mK which is mid-range thermal transfer. It was only about $10. You can get similar sized padding that will do 6-7W/mK for around $30, but I didn't think it was worth the extra cost.
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/JunPus-High- ... 367449301?

There's also 11W/mk in sizes that might fit your frame's cross bars well:
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Fujipoly-Ext ... 701212676?

I've also seen 14W/mk of this stuff as well.

Or, if your after the best thermal padding out there I would recommend this 17W/mk stuff...but it's ridiculously expensive!

This 200 x 150 x 1.5 pad is $284.99 :!: :shock:

Went for another ride with kiwiev on the weekend. This time down in Jindabyne, around the lake. Was an awesome ride resulting in a buckled rim, and 2 very hot hub motors. :twisted:


I realise it doesn't have my Stealth Fighter in it, but who cares. 8)

Hi there Cowardlyduck and friends,
Firstly, your videos are great, it gives a whole new dimension to the local scenery around our bush capital! The real reason for my post though is, I am hoping you might be able to help me find my husband.... I seem to have lost him somewhere in the land of ebikes.... He and a mate of his decided a while back that it would be cool to build one and since then it's become his reason to get up every morning! The problem is this; my hubby has built (successfully!) two bikes pretty much from scratch without issue but his mate who bought what he thought was the same kit from the same supplier turned up with a different controller (my hubby got the Kelly controller and friend has got a Cyclone/Headline controller)... Our mate has had nothing but dramas, he hasn't yet even been able to ride it, well not without full-time pedal power at least! The supplier had shipped out a new controller and after anxiously waiting a couple of weeks for it to arrive hoping this would sort out the issues, alas, same but slightly different problems.... Great! Whilst they are not certified ebike technicians they are both very clever and handy in these areas usually but the problem seems to be eluding them and so I am wondering if you, or anyone else who happens to be a local Canberran, could possibly share some knowledge and lend a hand!...??? I read your posts and you seem to know your s*#t, and you appear to have slightly more working knowledge regarding wiring/electrics/diagnostic troubleshooting and trying to troubleshoot with the supplier in the US has reached its limit seemingly....
Please help me so I can have my hubby back for just a couple of hours a day! If nothing else though, I know he is keen as to put his bike up against a Stealth model to see how they compare and find out if they are worth the big $$$$ etc!

Cheers
Lonely & frustrated wife from Canberra! :wink:

Wow! what a heart felt message there. I, like you, am new and stumbled across this thread. Man, cowardly duck really knows his stuff. Hopefully he will help you sort it out. That's so nice of him to answer your question straight away. What a great guy. BTW Stealth bikes are rad.

Enjoy. :)


The short version is still uploading so I'll post it tomorrow.
