Re: Fat-Covid ebike conversion

Where’d you get the motor kit? I’m doing a fat too.

Fixing a cheap battery cheaply.

Hi folks, I have a cheap battery pack which has a busted connection on one of the serial packs. The positive fat connector has broken off of the little metal plate which I assume are welded onto the cells. Is it reasonable to solder this connection back on? Or does it really need something more robu...

Re: Dengfu E06 build.

Hol' up there. Did we miss the bit where you discussed the wacky lacing? The make of rims you sourced, the fork fitted and everything else? This is an awesome build btw.

Might Be A Dredd Lawmaster Build

So I've been a Dredd fan since issue 12 back in the 70's. I've always fancied building something "like" his Lawmaster bike and I see lots of cool proper Fat bikes on the youtubes using car wheels etc. Now I don't have those kinda chops but I can ebike a fattie into something "influenc...

BBS02 and wiring lights (no cables)

Hi folks, I have a BBS02 build from a couple of months back and would like to wire in some lights to it. However, my BBS doesn't seems to have a cable for this exiting the controller that I've read some others have. I assume if I open it up they'll be some terminals to add the missing wire to take w...

Re: Your Creation's Before & After Pics

Donor bike's a 2012 Mongoose Fireball from Gumtree. image.png V1 build was the cheapest full kit I could get in Australia ($536 including 10Ah battery). IMG_0917.jpg Success of that meant a full makeover with BBS02b, Em3ev 48v Supershark. 42.8Kmh throttle only. Yum! IMG_0938.jpg IMG_0939.jpg

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

I'm deciding between going with a mid-drive or a hub motor. With the TSDZ2 how is the throttle operation? I like to coast with little to know legs now and again, and pedal uphills with very light pedalling (queensland summer = almost no pedalling to get to work) How fast does it go on throttle only?...

Re: Ooh, the choice paralysis of DIYing

Thanks for the replies everyone. I think in the interim I'll just cruise around on Build #1 while learning more and scoping out a frame for build #2.

Re: Ooh, the choice paralysis of DIYing

Thanks folks. So my first build is built (as I described in OP). While musing over frames, hubs or mid's, battery mounting, shipping costs to Aus and generally drinking too much, I think my next step is to get a 48 or 52v battery and decent controller and display. Since my current setup is all hardw...

Re: Ooh, the choice paralysis of DIYing

45kmh, not 40mph. Forestry hooliganism is pretty occasional and is really secondary. Think more gravel tracks with odd whoops. There's a few hills and I just bash up them with my 250W currently before my legs give out. Who makes the Q100H's? BMS Battery and PSWPower both seem to sell them, it's real...

Ooh, the choice paralysis of DIYing

Hi All, I'm slowly building a DIY Mongoose Fireball (hardtail) in various stages and I've become a bit parallelized in which way to go next. So far I've got a cheapy 250W rear hub kit on it to get used to the technology but clearly it doesn't have the power I'd like. 750W or 1000W is probably closer...

Re: E-ing a Mongoose Fireball

Since searching the internet is utterly broken these days I'm having trouble figuring out how to get 20 inch wheels on this thing. BMX wheels have a different axle size and some have a threaded freewheel. Axle width obviously isn't long enough for a MTB frame so are the hub's compatible in that I ca...

Re: E-ing a Mongoose Fireball

Just a chain guide. There’s no front gears on it.

E-ing a Mongoose Fireball

Hi Folks, I have a Mongoose Fireball as a donor bike for a project build and have a question about fitting a BBSHD. The bottom bracket has a chain guide mount welded around the chainring side. I assume I need to grind this puppy off in order for the Bafang to fit? https://photos.app.goo.gl/g2MiohhJD...
