    Question... Is there a way to trick the motor in order to get a higher top speed? Micah from ebikeschool just uploaded a new video and one of the tips for higher speed, was to change the wheel settings on your display. I run on 28" wheels, if i change it to 26" will that do anything? The speed...

    A couple upgrades... New dual pivot calipers New brake levers New handlebar ( I ordered a golden one to match the calipers, but it came in silver :mad: ) I took it for a quick ride and i noticed a huge braking improvement!

    I agree, the gears reliability is the only thing I'm afraid of. Maybe in the future I can change them with metal ones? Or I can find a DD motor and just swap it, if that is possible in any way.

    Do you know if I have to change the settings on my controller? I haven't checked yet, but I found out that my motor has 16 magnets and 1:6.28 gear ratio. Do I have to check the p1 setting and change it to 256 ( 16x16), if it isn't correct?

    Yeah I went a little overboard with the cooling system! The motors brand is Shengyi. The kit had everything, including the 10.4ah battery with samsung sells.

    Wheel hubs and air vents/good idea?

    Sorry for hijacking the thread, but anyone used those hubsinks? I live in Greece and we get pretty hot summer days, so I'm a little worried for my 250w front geared motor and i'm thinking on use them just to be sure...

    I tried to make it as clean looking as possible. I used a pvc pipe to hide the excess cables. I also had a problem with the PAS, not having enough space to fit the plastic disc and the metal ring with the sensor, but I found a way. I drilled the enclosure for the esc and added a heatsink. I'm...

    I finally ordered the motor from hobbyking (KEDA 63-64 190KV Brushless Outrunner 10S 2000W). Since this motor supports up to 10s betteries, can i get one of these 36v speed controllers...

    Now that i'm watching Stantons project again, i'm thinking on trying something like that. I juust have to fiind the correct parts, because i don't have a 3d printer. Happy New Year!

    I could, but i'm building a friction drive. I guess he can point me to the right direction. Maybe if this doesn't work, i can copy his desighn ( try at least...).
