Re: [AUSTRALIA] Sur-Ron Light Bee / Fire Fly - Mid drive ebike

FYI I own and ride three different “pedal assist e-bicycles” all of which at full power the pedals are a nuisance IMHO Are these based on cadence sensing or Torque sensing, and what is the nuisance exactly? I do believe that a cadence sensing on high power would exaggerate the unpleasant behavior o...

Re: [AUSTRALIA] Sur-Ron Light Bee / Fire Fly - Mid drive ebike

Procrastination about butchering a beautiful pure e- moto to be a pedal assist bicycle is hardly hating on someone for liking pedal assist! That is indeed a different subject. Not seeing the bike up close, I have no idea if it could be made to use pedals in a clean efficient way, so you may be righ...

Re: [AUSTRALIA] Sur-Ron Light Bee / Fire Fly - Mid drive ebike

The latest one is the Neematic with a 9 speed Pinion gearbox, and torque sensing pedal assist. What is true, is that most high power pedal assist bikes are based on a poor cadence only sensor. The best pedal assist experience (most natural) is with a Torque base sensing pedal assist which Neematic h...

Re: [AUSTRALIA] Sur-Ron Light Bee / Fire Fly - Mid drive ebike

I would see no insult in making a version that would compete with the Neematic :) https://www.neematic.com/ We had that discussion before, but there is a legitimate use for hi power pedal assist E-bike. I rode motorcycles all my life, but I do see a different pleasure in powering the bike using leg ...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike group buy EU

I did see some footage of the bike, but what I meant is that most of the footage is of the landscape (from the bike), not the bike itself. I personally like to see more of how the bike looks and behave in action across various trails and obstacles. That of course does imply that you just don't film ...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike group buy EU

Just a constructive remark :)

As far as bringing info on the bike, I think the videos would be more useful if they were OF the bike being ridden, rather than of the bush in front of it.

As far as a video of the country side, it is nice though :)

Re: Stealth FUTR owners builds and pics

If that is the way you want the hole to be enlarged, you can file it with a round metal file, or grind it using a Dremel.

A little harder work, but you can get it exactly where you want and exactly the size you need :)

When storing the battery for a long time, you should only charge it to 70%.

Haven't seen one in the flesh yet. The product page does have close ups of that carbon frame, and they do look good, but only test drive will say. The design appears to have been copied from the Audi Ebike prototype https://www.google.com/search?rls=com.microsoft:en-US:IE-Address&tbm=isch&q=audi+e+b...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Thanks for the clarification Rix, appreciate it. If it is Cadence sensor only it is a pity. I also don't understand why they would deactivate the throttle for the California Pedelec, Class3 is perfectly legal with both pedal assist and throttle, you just need to limit the max speed of the throttle. ...
