Well yeah.. It's a good bike but unfortunately they didn't take the time and money to develop a truly great ebike.It's an outdated bike with cheap/badly designed parts there and there.pjwalmsley wrote: ↑Aug 16 2019 9:35am@engate -
Sounds like your pretty frustrated with this bike, but in general whats your thought on the Qulbix vs Vector frames? I'm primarily deciding between a Qulbix 76 and Vector Typhoon (and their respective mid drives but they cost too much and might get me in trouble).
1. Do you feel the swingarm wheel connection point is stronger on one vs the other (shooting for 20kw)?
2. What do you think of the suspension geometry of the two bikes?
4. Is the pedal height/position on the Typhoon annoying - does it make you feel 'balled up' while sitting - I'm 6' and usually ride a large frame.
The Qulbix 76 chain play seems worrisome (don't look like an issue on the MD though); https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_64s2XZEXg
@benjamin - I see you removed the pedals and overdrive kit. How did you like the overdrive kit?
Don't build anything with a HUB motor. Especially if the motor is located in the rear wheel.Every single one is an expensive junk what handles terrible and prone to overheating.Just buy a sur ron and mod it if you want more power.It's superior to both the qulbix and vector bikes regarding quality.
The Q140MD frame is a bit better quality than the vector typhoon.But I think the typhoon is a better choice because of the lower price.Should be able to handle 20kW. Not sure about the qulbix 76.
i'm 6' as well and I think both frames are good enough regarding seat height.Both feels tall after my sur ron
I don't pedal on these bikes unless a cop is looking at me so I can't tell if it's annoying or not.
