Re: MMP Front Rim used as a rear?

Thats a good point, but I bet those moto tires are strong. I dont really feel like dropping an extra $150 on rim,spokes,nipples,tire,tube quite yet. Anyway here was the ad, just confusing is all, first says Rear BLEM I assume blemished, then the title says Rear, then SKU says Front....odd http://hol...

Re: MMP Front Rim used as a rear?

Looking at ebikes.ca simulator, I really see no difference in the graph.
Is it worth making the change from a 26" bicycle rim in the mxus 3000w v.2, to a 19" moto (24" bicycle) rim?

MMP Front Rim used as a rear?

My current bicycle rim is wobbly now, so I am going to buy the MMP moto rim, 19" (equates to 24" bicycle), to use on my 26" bicycle frame. Can I use a front rim as a rear and install my mxus 3000w 4504 motor? ** But now I come to think of it, if I am going this route I need a 19" moto rim for the fr...

Re: Is this legit? Greentime on Aliexpress

They got one for my needs, 16S 67.2V 5A, just wondering about the future is all. Last night I was eyeballing...

Re: Leaf motor Build/Questions

I bought mine right from manufacturer, but people sell them on this website too.
Check out the "For Sale" forum, snatch a new one up for $300-$350 in a rim.

Re: Really, no paypal on Aliexpress, now the BMSB confusion!

Choices choices Theres a 16.6A Mean Well from JameCo Electronics, its a SE-600-36, 32-40V and 16.6A so I can charge half my 20Ah pack in about an hour and a half. Its $84 + $20s/h Its 247*127*63.5mm LWH 2.1kg. I think the good news that comes with that is if I choose to go 15Ah pack, the charging ti...

Re: Leaf / leafmotor / leafbike high efficiency 1500w motor

So these are all the same motor?

leafmotor.com does not sell the 1500w, only 1000w's.
leafbike, yes I found the 1500w model.

I have been unable to find just "Leaf" whether it be leaf.com or whatever, maybe your talking eBay sales.

Re: Is this legit? Greentime on Aliexpress

I am sticking with the original, also trying to figure out if they sell BMS's because another poster somewhere else stated Greentime sells BMS's, it sure doesnt list it on their Aliexpress site, heck they even sell womens clothing on their Aliexpress site. http://www.aliexpress.com/store/group/Batte...

Re: Is this legit? Greentime on Aliexpress

Is the shipping time they give reliable?

Shipping:
US $36.92to
Canada via DHL
Delivery: 3-7 days (ships out within 6 business days)

Because I thought it takes waaaay longer then that. But I guess if I buy it on Monday, it might still take under 2 weeks (6 + 3/4/5/6/7)
