    24volt GlobalE

    The Chain is rusty..maybe a dip in kerosene(wipe with a cloth)+dry..before adding a chain lube..24volt battery..30-minutes run time..try improving that by charging for 3-days..before riding..I have a Schwinn 24volt and I modified it from 15-amp to 18-amp..I still use the 1.5 AMP Schwinn Charger/but have created a Battery Separator for useing a standard 12-volt Battery Charger at 6-amps for 2-hours..(each bank)..
    Of course..there should be a Battery LABEL..showing your Amp Hours..
    ..and 1.5 AMPS is safe all around..
    The batteries I replaced were made by Panasonic..12-volt 15-amp times(2)..
    ..the Battery that one might consider the REAR-Battery actually shows more(USE)than the forward battery/you may be able to get away with just purchasing a single battery..
    I use a SMART Charger(Black&Decker)for charging my used STUFF..@ 6-amps..well the Panasonic shows a stable Shelf Life..while its REAR BATT(needs more attention as it loses its Shelf Life(Charge)..I used those foir 2-seasons..1-hour Round Trips every other day..
    That's about all I have encountered..Check All Your Connections..clean and re-attach..I've been useing SLIME(tube repair)..well it also seems that the tubes that are shipped with products are NOT Really great..the one you can BUY off the shelf--are much better..but still try the SLIME/.

    Hi, I am new.

    Here is a picture of one of our earlier prototypes. We did 600-miles (965km) since the last CA reset.

    We saved it from disassembly and has now become one of our daily commuters for about a year. Not too impressed with the torque of this motor and it's quite heavy, but it's rock-solid reliable and good balance of assistance.

    Pack is mounted on the seat tube, controller fits exactly in the gap between the wheel. The problem with this configuration is that the seat is stuck high and high CM... So it's not good for shorter riders. The nice thing is that you can quickly remove the battery pack and the seat which will be the first things that get stolen in the wrong neighborhood.

    Details:

    Dahon Speed P8 / Crystalyte 405 rear motor / 20A controller / CA plugin / Cruise control / 36V / 10Ah / NiMH / Top speed is about 24mph (38.5kph) / Range is quite variable. It still folds nicely.

    Very cool. I love my Dahon Jetstream P8. The Speed P8 is a sweet ride as well.

    Do you have a photo of the bike folded?

    How much more does the bike weigh now? Are you approaching the load limit on the Dahon with the added weight of yourself and the battery gear?

    I will be posting my 1999 Lee Iacocca E-Bike on CL today.

    The bike as pictured including removable things like basket, rack, kickstand is 25.5kg/56.5lb but the weight balance is quite good considering rear motor.

    Folded, it looks just like stock Dahon since the controller is inside the frame and you just remove the seat.

    It could be up to the weight limit, but this is a very stiff steel frame. We pounded an earlier Dahon e-bike conversion and even off road runs -it never flinched, the wheels broke first.

    Thanks for looking.

    Thumbs up Great Mod

    I am curious which parts did you use and how long did it take you to put that together. Fantastic job though

    I love that Giant Stilletto! May be my next project. Lots of inspiration here.

    Here's what I have so far...
    The first. Golden Motor 36v 500 watts. LiFePo4 36v 20ah.
    The figures on speed are exagerated as my speedo was off. I just never got around to changing the photo. More like 20 MPH.
    FrankinBike.jpg

    Second. Made from a Mongoose BMX and two old mountain bikes.
    The steering is "push/pull" skidloader style underseat. Link arms on both sides.
    AmpedBikes kit. 36v 20ah LiFePo4. Plenty of speed and great fun as is but plan on going to 48v for the torque.
    SLSide.jpg

    Third. Bought this so as to take my aged Mother for a ride. Side by side seating with separate pedals and shifters/brakes She doesn't have a lot of horsepower in her legs,
    so I built a quick release trailer with batteries and controller. To help out.
    36v AmpedBikes, Three 12v 12a SLA.

    Conhis Motors 1000W kit on Specialized Mtn. bike

    I recently installed a 1000 watt rear hub motor on an old mountain bike. I only have about 35 miles on it so far.

    Top speed without pedaling is 30.0 MPH on a flat road as measured with a Garmin Edge 305 GPS.

    The battery is a 48 volt 10Ah Lifepo4.

    My futhest ride has been 19 miles with no noticeable loss of power. I weigh approximately 185 lbs. My average speed was 20 to 30 MPH with many stops at stop lights.

    Here is my $50 bike turned into electric bike. I outfitted it with a 500w Ampedbikes rear kit, and a Lithium 36v 20ah battery. Actually, the bike is a Motive, same as Blippo.

    Cheers

    Here's my Surley Cross Check with a Bionx Kit. Been riding it about a week now, it it works well. Needs better brakes, water bottle mount somewhere, and quieter freehub but otherwise excellent. I'm thinking the battery may end up in the pannier.

    hello from the Netherlands


    my first one was a Mercedes hybrid ebike has only one level of assistance

    I did buy an Aprilia enjoy city which is a very good alternative with 3 levels of assistance
    for spare part I did buy t a second, on which is now converted with a Chinese controller which works very fine only miss is a pedelec switch to make it legal but without is very easy to start at traffic lights
    also if you control the throttle a bit brings you further (50km now)

    I also has restored and upgraded to 24 volt a c5 sinclair but this one, an a spare part one, are both for sale now
    I can not use them by limitation of my shoulder

    I need a ebike because of my heart failure , but with a ebike I can climb the only hill in the area (90mtr) very easy

    This is an early ( circa 1947) Fiberglas bike, with battery to accumulate voltage from going down hills and cruising at high speed, and electric assist to get up hills. Bowden Spacelander, red, white, black, about 477 made.

    This is the start of my 2,000 watt Electric Bicycle, This was a Giant Stiletto Chopper Bicycle. I am using a Scott Cloud EV motor at 24v. and a kelly 200 amp controller. The Yellow things below the frame are the 24V, 160ah. Li-Ion Fe. batteries that were originally for an electric car, they were expensive, I am still working on this e-bike a little at a time. It should have a long range. click the links to see photos of setup so far. Attachment 132146Attachment 132145Attachment 132144

    Hello Zeuser,
    I'm interested on PL350 Bionx kit for my bike, but which one is more secure against thieves if I leave the bike locked in a public parking? I'm in Montreal which in general is safe but bikes are stolen if you don't park them with a U-lock or other strong lock.
