Polychain carbon belt test is started now.
Looking forward to hearing about your results. From you initial impression, does the Gates belt mesh well? any buzzing or additional sound from the sprockets?

Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

Belt Drive installation Hi Guys My belt kit arrived today. I am not the most mechanically minded person in the world. I did build my bike on my own but I can not figure how to get the belt kit installed The suspension swing arm bolt sticks out and blocks free passage of the belt. Is a new lower pro...

true but if you're looking for something ready to go nothing wrong with this option is all I'm saying.

Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

35E are the weakest you can buy. the voltage drop is so high on 8A that you hit LVC at 50% of your battery capacity. My experience with an EM3EV 35E pack has been positive. so long as the discharge rate is around 1C average, so about an hour of riding, the pack voltage holds up well. I've had direc...

Brian, awesome that you were able to reuse that battery like that. I'll have to get a hurry up on building my larger pack soon so I can keep up with you 8)
Thanks CD,. I'm sure that'll you come up with a pack takes capacity to the a new extreme, just like you did with the Fighter :shock:

Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

About sliding the battery, am I to understand that at that width, you can tilt it from the side and it goes in? If so that would mean we could probably get an even bigger battery in there filling more of the dead space below the top tube... Yes, the battery is probably about 70mm wide and the inter...

You could may be reverse the shock to clear the space better.
That's a no go unfortunately. Tried it once before and the reservoir doesn't clear the swingarm.

Re: E-S LMX 64 Bike Owners

Continuing the theme of big ass batteries, it occurred to me that a battery I already had sitting around might fit in the LMX frame, bearing in mind my frame is a large. Good news is it does actually just slide in with a bit of jiggling and manoeuvring with just enough space to clear the top shock m...

What spring have you got?.
Hi Joe, I run a 550lb/in spring on my Fox DHX and I'm probably about 87kg with my riding gear on. Ride is plush but still won't bottom that much so 500lb/in at your weight sounds about right

Ouch! Think this was the result of a square edge hit at speed riding up Tuggeranong Hill with Cowardly Duck a few weekends back. Tubeless and still holding pressure :shock:

Re: Nukeproof Mega - GMAC - Nucular 12F trail/enduro build

Nice, how is the feel in the brake handle with the pressure sensor? Is it stiff, or is there some flex like a normal brake? I considered the exact same thing, but I mounted a thumb throttle and kept both front and rear discs. The thumb throttle for braking worked so good so I haven't gotten around ...

Re: Tangent Giant DH Revival Build

Put another buckle and slide that battery down mate. You will get extra clearance and lower center of gravity. Yeah, could look at doing that. But may need to add another Rivnut. The battery was in the lowest position I could get it when I had the motor raised to tuck in close to the frame. I hit p...

Re: Tangent Giant DH Revival Build

The Haro 357 NIne DH frame, that I had lying around for serveral years, seemed like a good match for the Tangen...

Re: Nukeproof Mega - GMAC - Nucular 12F trail/enduro build

yes, high continuous sustain amps isn't a great idea for a MAC. Nonetheless oil cooling probably would have saved your MAC. Still better to go for a bigger motor if sustained high power levels are called for.

Re: Nukeproof Mega - GMAC - Nucular 12F trail/enduro build

Build looks great! But why use a 10000w controller on a 2600w peak motor? am I missing something? Thanks BD :) I did consider going with a 6 fet Nuc, but didn't want to regret not getting a the 12f for its ability to dish out more phase amps. So the goal here is extracting as much torque out of the...

That's some bad luck there. Have others here broken theirs? So far mine is holding up fine, but a backup sounds like a good idea.

Re: Nukeproof Mega - GMAC - Nucular 12F trail/enduro build

Nah, 12f is a good match for the GMAC, it can push way more phase amps (well over 200a for the 12f) than the GMAC can cope with for any length of time.

In fact Grin match the GMAC with the Phaserunner which only pushes 100a phase amps max.

Five or so years ago I bought a run out special Nukeproof frame from ChainReactionCycles.
