Don't worry, easy to fix. You'll need some SAE 7.5 oil replacement and maybe a new foot nut if you can't refit the old one.

Either charger will do the job, the 10A one will be much quicker. If you don't need to recharge quickly, maybe use the 6A one. It's a bit easier on the pack. Don't bother mounting it anywhere.

The fluid around the cranks may be from the V-Boxx. Unless it's a large amount, I wouldn't worry about it, they're virtually indestructible. I'm sure your worries will disappear very quickly!!!

Marclink - What trails are you planning on riding out there? I was planning on taking a trip to Joshua Tree and Ocotillo Wells once it cools down. If you know any good trails out there let me know the names. I am especially interested in a good bike trail in Joshua Tree.

For Orange County one of the poplular trails is Whiting Ranch trail in foothill ranch here is a youtube video I just found if you want to check it out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8JfnrrQumg

Hopefully you will have your bike up an running with no issues soon. Once you get it dialed in you will not regret the purchase.

Hey NOCAL, SOCAL and AZ guys, anyone interested in planning a fall ride? I live 90 minutes east of S. Lake Tahoe. Been tossing the idea around for say an early October ride there or down in the MT Whitney area, or northern AZ area before the snow arrives. If there is an interest, post or PM me. Because of my work schedule, I would need about 2 weeks notice to arrange a trip. Rix

Marclink & Rix, California, Nevada & Arizona mountain trails would be fantastic! Hopefully one day soon for me. Pics & video please! Meanwhile, being in Hyena territory, I'll have to get my Fighter back together and go on the next group ride. :idea:

Yes it's the UK, Sherwood forest. The footage does not show the gradient well as some of it is very up and down! Runs pretty fast too :evil:

Ok, I will PM you guys and see about setting something up.

Mugen, great video. So that the legendary Sherwood Forest? Doesn't look anything like the one in the robin hood movies. Sweet single track. I wish trails were like that around here. I flatted last night after a peace of lava rock tore the sidewall of my rear tire. Thanks goodness I was just over 2 miles away so pushing the bomber wasn't bad. Can't wait to get the 5404 with the motorcycle rim. Running 4-6ply tires will solve this problem.

Feeling a bit like summer out there, sounds great but my Fighter is still upside down. Still waiting for the 40xx but got my hitch so should be ready to go soon. Are you heading Bundeena way or towards Wattamolla?

Cool floor Toby. You need to paint the walls and roof to match now for maximum effect :lol:
I have randomly placed offcuts of carpet from when I redid the floors inside for working on my bikes which isn't ideal.

Nope, opposite direct - Kurnell cliffs out heading back towards Botany Bay. Though I would like to do Bundeena at some stage, maybe get the ferry across from Cronulla or just drive there head off from there.
I'll post a vid of the days action probably Sunday night :)

As in H40 or something else ?
I'm loving the H4080 in my fighter and that bit of extra top end is great when the trail opens up into a nice smooth double track and you can really get the wind rushing by. I have one last H4060 left but I think I'd need to run 24S lipo to get the same sort of high end shove. The last guy that reported back to me fitted his to a 26" MTB and even on 50 amps said he had trouble keeping the front wheel down. heh.

The past.days where spent recording, editing and rearranging a 3 part video concerning the Vboxx on the bomber. How does.it.work, what's inside, where do you adjust what and why? Uploading is currently in progress. In a few hours the links to it will be posted here and in my Vboxx clinic. :-)

The guy, or team behind this mechanical marvel really deserves my utmost respect. Something so complexe is not developed overnight. The bearings that fell apart in mine have been replaced by needle roller ones on the latest vboxx version. The video should be good enough to repair the thing. It could have been even more detailed but that would have bored most viewers of. Personally, ever since I was gearboxed, my opinion is that this is just the shifting device ebikes deserve. Crappy deraileur systems don't belong in a high tech bike. Yeah, I know, the efficiency is higher, but that's what we have the motor for. By the way, pedaling the bomber around with no engine helping is such a blast. Thanks to the one and only Vboxx. :mrgreen:
