I don't get it, perhaps you have very steep hills? I can ride my 48 volt bike for two hours and don't get tired at all, and i'm outa shape.

Took me only one afternoon to complete my bike conversion from bare bike to roadworthy Ebike. This includes complete dependability for 5,000 km's.
It seems to me (and many others i'm sure) that building the bike is more important than anything.

Try CBC bearings, ask for keystock - best is to just show up and see what they got.
How on earth did the key fall out? It would be pressed in....
very good idea. I'll give that a shot if I run out of ready made options.Drunkskunk wrote:Drill bits are hardened steel, and cheap. easy enough to grind one down to the shape you need. An afternoon with a few beers an an angle grinder should have you a new shaft Key. Worked for lawn mower I repaired for a friend once.
yeah, that's the way it usually goesI bet you'll step on the original key the moment you finish making the new key, too!
I wouldn't sweat not being finished. You started Months after me, and I'm still not done with my latest build. I'm in no hurry either.
voicecoils wrote:Thanks. I think your experience is similar to mine, hopefully the solution will be too. After more testing, my CA will struggle to life at 36v (fading in and out), barely start up at 48v, and wont do it at all at 72v. I made 3 respective youtube videos. direct plug in CA on top, stand alone CA on the bottom. I'll be contacting Justin when it's Monday in Vancouver. I'm sure a solution can be found or sorted out.
I love the CA, make no mistake!!!
