Cheers Mark. It was the hardest frame to weld so far, it was almost at the point of blowing through many times on both sides but yeah, turned out ok in the end. Nah mate no plans to sell any more now, theres just no money in it eh. Then theres the liability issue i'd like to avoid like the plague... Hey have you ordered your Lipos for your new bike yet?dingoEsride wrote:Those welds look great mate, always top notch, seems you had nothing to worry about, the rest will be a joy to piece together,I think you should use this frame as a prototype to go into production and get some of your hard work into $, they should sell a like a breeze

Yeah with construction as long as its strong they don't tend to worry as much i guess.dingoEsride wrote:I know that feeling well but usually on roof racks or construction welds that don't need to look too pretty, a little more weld then a grinder is usually my way,

Yeeees, keeping our cool during these heat waves ends up costing a fortune! Your lucky you drink beer, i'm a bundy drinker @ $20 a 6 pack...dingoEsride wrote:Ha Ha! yeah without it I'd be rich or a lot wealthier, but with this heatwave we're having its a nice luxury, thats why I have battery powered bikes is to help with carting cartons.

Whiplash wrote:Yeah I rode it to work today! WAAY cooler than an RC in my opinion, nice and quiet, climbs like hell, and still has top speed! best of all three worlds! LOL! I can't wait to bump up the power to the 2500 mark, I have only hit 1200 so far and its great! LOL! Its crazy how quiet it is though, you almost forget to shift!
Yeah Tench probably has the best charging setup on the site! I'd love to replicate it but wouldn't even know where to start...
I've never seen the DB connectors before, but they might be the way to go. Do you have any pics of your setup? What do you use to charge your 24s pack?
And how do you balance using the battery medics?
I'm an electrical numpty and feel that this side of the build will be the hardest to figure out for me by far...
EDIT: Ah yes, i've seen those connectors before on pc's etc. Do you have any links on where to buy some?
