Re: Voilamart 1500W Internal Controller and Amps

- You have to go through the trouble shooting process methodically. Check to see if the wires are in tip top shape on motor axle exit. If direct drive, spin the wheel and see if there is a "clicking" type drag, means phase wires are touching or winding wire. Disconnect motor from controller. Inspec...

Re: Wooden sticks

You will never know how the motor is built unless someone already opened it up and pictured it in some forum somewhere. Even then the manufacturing line may have changed build parts to save money, or supply partner changes, or how the slave-wage worker feels that day on the assembly line. Same happe...

Re: Converting a beach cruiser with front wheel motor.

Geared rear hub, means the rear dropouts are narrower and you have to spread the rear dropouts for motor to fit. Going front motor fixes that problem. Coaster brakes creates problems, when going rear hub, but your going front. You can do 500W or 1000W front hub, and be sure to install torque arms on...

Re: Trouble With the Car You're Still driving?

Nice Find

I bet them in India could forge that piece for you for a measly $1.25 in a couple hours, big money for them.


Well we will see how long it takes for a $40 product to get to you.

Re: Cheapest high torque fast bike?

Batteries are expensive, its as simple as that.

Now, do you want to cheap out on some mystery dangerous basement built battery off ebay or amazon and save some coin, or do you want to know for a fact you have a properly built battery, built by a reputable company or person, or do you want to gamble?

Re: Building my first bike - A few questions

Buy a USED brand name bicycle, like a Trek, Rocky Mountain, Specialized, Kona in a 26" wheel size. You can find them in the online classifieds and pawn shops. There would be plenty of selection for a used brand name bicycle for 300 quid. Get a corresponding ebike kit in said bicycle wheel size. Put ...

I never saw 'Cable Guy,' but I feel certain they shot any Medieval Times scenes at the Buena Park location. Yup they sure did. There are 8 locales, Buena being one. I google mapped it. It sure looks cool. Cable Guy filmed in 1996, so Buena's been around for 24 yrs, such staying power. I wonder how ...

Re: Does Endless Sphere have an app

You could just go use Endless Sphere on Facebook, as Facebook has an app.

Otherwise, there is no profit in our ES maintainers to waste their time building an app for no pay whatsoever. If or even when, if ever ES goes to an AD system, even then not worth it.

Yesterday forecast said +12C for Saturday (today)
Today being today, the weather temp has not risen above -2C.

I think The Weather Channel has gotten infected. It states tomorrow will be +12C with cloud and sunny breaks. I was really hoping to go out ebiking and fishing today.
