    Raptor build - pre build stage

    Crikey - more than 2 months since I've posted on my thread...I really have been a wee bit busy of late. Anyhoo...bit of an update for those that care (mum...you reading this... :D ): Have decided to go with the 140 frame (was always going to use 18650 cells, moto seat and wanted pegs) and I...

    Hyena's e-bike builds (now with HD video)

    Well...someone been more nice than naughty eh... :D Love the moto bars...and those brakes sound like a cracking idea, if I hadn't already invested in some shimano saints I'd be all over them! Keep us posted on progress my good man!

    Hyena's e-bike builds (now with HD video)

    I was looking at these suckers back in April - http://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=59216 - 4th post down. Didn't get much feedback on them...and as they didn't fit my colour scheme (bike tart I know) I discounted them. The colour will go perfectly with your Raptor 140 frame...

    Qulbix Raptor ebike + frame kit

    Only downside with freight forwarder is less likely to fly under the radar from an imports perspective...and they charge more than just the postage...even Shipoitto. Would prefer to fling a fellow ESer a few quid if required and get it forwarded in 'plain packaging'. If no one can do then I'll...

    Qulbix Raptor ebike + frame kit

    Rightio - I've been a bit quiet of late...just trying to line all of the remaining parts up for the build and then get cracking. I've identified some forks @ Jenson cycles however they won't post to Oz - anyone still willing to be my drop shipper. Mammalian...I know you put your hand up some...

    PRW's custom aluminium allrounder

    That definitely is one very good looking and exceptionally functional frame - props Samd! Just a quick query, what's the dimensions on the battery box? PRW - yet another piece of machinery you're going to have to let me have a spin on... What's your thought's re: motor? Lightweight geared...

    Qulbix Raptor 140

    Mammalian - why don't you just stick the controller inside first and fix it to the frame - it doesn't need to fit inside the opening together with the battery as you should just fix it in once. Remember, you have frame space above and beyond the actual opening...and as the controller and...

    Panasonic NCR18650B 2.7kWhr pack for my Stealth Bomber

    Great pack, and awesome range. Very good work. Who'd you get to do the tab welding...presuming it's not a state secret... :D

    E-skateboard down hay street in East Perth

    Yeah...never good if they're a bit obnoxious...doesn't help the EV cause... The guy I saw was right to the side of the road so wasn't effecting traffic or pedestrians...might have had a car door opened on him though...but we all run that risk. Made me think about building up a board at some time...

    E-skateboard down hay street in East Perth

    Was just wandering down East Perth at around lunch time today and saw a dude spinning down hay street on a powered skateboard..if you're on the forums, just wanted to say it looked cool dude. Think it was being driven by a wii nunchuck...but can't be sure. Respect!

    Brilliant work Chris (and Danny obviously) - congrats. Hopefully the rest of the season is just a continual progression from here... I still clench cheeks each time I read that 700V...

    Qulbix Raptor ebike + frame kit

    Thanks for the detailed feedback Offroader - that's what I expected. Ecruz also enlightened me a little earlier... Suspect I'll be springer for a new fork sometime soon...need to make sure we got all the steerer length. Oh well - budget was blown anyways...

    Qulbix Raptor ebike + frame kit

    Thanks for the confirmation re: steerer length ecruz. Re: forks, I'm set on getting some Fox 40 RC2 FIT with Kashima coat - got a bit of gold bling that'll be sprinkled around the bike and these will fit right in. By all accounts, they're not a bad set of forks either... :D Thanks for the...

    Qulbix Raptor ebike + frame kit

    Quick change of subject for all you Raptorites...would a 167mm steerer length be enough on dual crown forks for the raptor? The head tube length is listed at 150mm on Qulbix site so I'm thinking 167mm doesn't leave much room for spacers, stem and head set. I accept the head set doesn't take...

    Qulbix Raptor 140

    Hmmm...interesting. I've not even received my frame yet and could be regretting not holding off a couple of extra weeks... I guess the only 'issue' I would have with width is not sure if it will fit 2 18650 cells lying down...? Also wonder if it might not look a bit too 'stocky' from a side...

    Raptor build - pre build stage

    Time for another quick update peeps. I was hoping to change the title to 'build stage' however although my frame has 'arrived', it is in Sydney and I'm in Perth....to give many of you a more internationally recognised geographical perspective, the frame is in New York and I'm in Los Angeles...

    Qulbix Raptor ebike + frame kit

    :shock: I'm gonna be fascinated to see how you manage to tuck 308 of those cells in the Raptor frame. If you succeed my good man, I'll be emulating you... Where are you posting up most of your battery discussion? Is it on the thread kicked off by circuit? 22s14p would be awesome - you'd...

    Qulbix Raptor ebike + frame kit

    Water cooling could be the go...? I still haven't sourced my motor as yet, and the 4Motus crew seem to get the same motors as the Cro but mod it for off the shelf water cooling (modified axel and stator it would appear). I've just posted on their thread...
