Re: GA Cells from Germany - Too Cheap To Be True?

Thanks for the link. I'm assuming you recommend buying them from NKON? Are they a trusted seller in Europe?

Reliable Aliexpress Cell Sellers?

Is that an Oxymoron or has anyone got the names of any reliable cell sellers. I'm looking to buy 75 Sanyo GA cells for a pack build and found a seller called Queen Battery Supplier that seems well reviewed and well priced. Can anyone help? https://www.aliexpress.com/store/1332380?spm=2114.12010608.0...

Nukeproof Mega - Where am I going to put the battery!?

I bought this bike with a Bafang BBS02 or BBSHD conversion in mind, but I am struggling to find a battery that will fit in the triangle. The gap from the downtube to the shock is 70mm. Can anyone help?

Suitable frame for a mid drive conversion? (Specialized FSR)

Hi. I'm looking for a suitable bike to convert for my first ebike. I'm pretty much settled on a Bafang BBSHD or BBS02, so I want a good frame for the motor and battery. I've got an option to buy a Specialized FSR from 2005. Do you guys think it fits the bill? Capture.JPG It looks to me like the tria...

Re: BBSHD uk battery reccomendations - 20ah+

I'm interested again, especially at under £300 for the battery (time is not a factor for me). But a few other questions have come up. if you are under 15s battery, use the neptune lite. What does 15s mean, and is a neptune lite a kind of BMS? ideally would like 52v 20ah-30ah. plus what chargers and ...

Re: Can you derestrict a Yamaha Mid motor?

Thanks guys. Obviously I checked the web before posting here. I was rather hoping that a free or cheaper DIY way would be available so I thought I'd ask this community.

Can you derestrict a Yamaha Mid motor?

I am toying with buying a Haibike HardSeven which has the Yamaha crank motor, but being in the UK it will be restricted to a pitiful 15mph. Does anyone know if they can be unrestricted for off road use?

Re: Which one? Haibike SDuro SL or Focus Jarifa 27?

Sorry, the SDuro in budget is the Hardseven version, so also a hardtail. I realise that there are more powerful motors out there, the new Impulse thats on the Jarifa 27 is meant to put out 70Nm of torque which seems like it'll be quite capable. The yamaha motor of the Haibike is rated at 60Nm, which...

Which one? Haibike SDuro SL or Focus Jarifa 27?

I think I'm heading towards a new ready made bike rather than a self build and these two are what I have the budget for.

Does anyone have experience of either or both?

Where should my money go?

Right.....

I'm going off this self build idea now. Might just buy a Focus Jarifa or Haibike instead.

I often revert back to thinking that a DIY has to be the best thing to do with a battery as it gives the most flexibility in shape.
