I have also asked for such headset on my local stor because I´ve forgot that I have ordered on from Artur (lol). He said he has never seen such stuff and that it´s really unnormal size. Well, I hope they will be here soon, same for battery and rear rim so I can finally finish my vector built.. :)

We made headtube of this size to be able to use 1,1/8"; 1,5"-1,1/8; 1,5" forks on Vector frame. Normaly we should have had it already, but because of 3 weeks of chinese new year celebration we need to wait now .. sorry guys..

Ok , thanks again Arthur for your quick response . I love the fact that you are open to answering these questions its very helpful . I doubt if many manufacturers are quite as easy to access and open to discuss ......... Good on you Artur !

Could someone please upload a picture of his rear and front brake? My rearbrake doesn´t fit because the screws are too short (at least I hope I tried to use the right one, black collored), and my front brake is 5mm to wide on the left side, also with the adapter I have got from Artur.

SOLVED: I have got a little, uncollored steal-adapter I have to put in between of the fork and the brake. :)

How do I mount the Max-E Controller outside of the frame? There are four screw holes which seem to be made for mounting it on the outside of the frame but I just don't have any screws for these tiny little holes for it. Any help? :roll:

Why mount it outside the frame and not inside the battery box? Inside the box controller is better shielded against the elements.
You could ie mount it up top of the inside of the frame, just make a bracket that fits the two horizontal bars on top.

Or you could do it like madin88 did, with an extra heat sink sticking out of the lower triangle for better cooling while the controller itself was shielded inside.

Look up a few vector build treads and you will see how to do it. Screws, go to the local hardware store and get some. Or ask you neighbor, uncle or the mailman.

Other question: There has been someone who made some pretty nice Dirtbike-like mudguards for his Vector. Who was that? While waiting for my battery and headset I´m planing to build something similar like that. Just like on this photo. You can see a Vector with Moto-Seat, superimposed with a KTM EXC 125. The KTM has a transparency of 30% anymore. Looks quite interesting:

And the original pictures:

For better view for details, here the bare frame of the KTM:

the controller is not protected against water, this is a minus in your mudguards. But they looks greate for sure! :)

Are you folks selling those mudguards? I have a mudhugger rear fender, but it probably needs some modifications in order to get it to fit.

Hello Vector owners and enthousiasts. Do any of you run a Sclumpf or ATS High Speed Drive (2.5 ratio) on your Vector frames?

I'm in the process of building an e-bike, and it's important to me that I can still pedal comfortably while cruising at 40+ mph.

Thanks.
