    EbikeFl makes some good points, but the researchers always been off by a few years. These kinds of predictions were made in the 70s. We would run out of oil by 1985, etc. I know the oil companies...

    I don't know anything about ebikekit, but I would make sure that that hub has those thicker spokes. That's a lot of heft that you're gonna carry.

    Thanks for the responses. Yes, it is a 36v LiMn system. And, the bionx pack is the battery pack with the BMS built in to the unit. So, you have the battery pack and there is a circuit board within...

    Reviving a dead bionx battery pack.

    I'm having an issue with a bionx battery pack that has been unused for a while. I bought it used, so there is no warranty on it. I found a page in the nycewheels site that recommends that you...

    Glad you were able to overcome your issues :thumb:. I guess you're still going with the backpack battery?

    I got a shipping quote from BMS battery for a q100 motor and the bottle battery. I think...

    My only criticism is that the bike looks too back heavy and could cause you to pop wheelies when you don't want to. Esp. on hills.

    Looking forward to hearing about these builds as I'm looking to do the same.

    Hey guys,
    I was just watching this movie and I see an IFmode bike in the movie(!). They are showing it on HBO. I had actually seen this movie when it was in the theaters, but just noticed the...

    Can't recommend Amped Bikes. They sent me a bad hub and I had to pay about $150 shipping the parts, hub to them several times. AVOID them at all costs.

    Did a search for those on ebay. Prolly worth every bit of $60 :p

    Thanks for the suggestions. I think drilling a hole in the tube seems to be the most simple. Perhaps just doing it on one side and putting a small screw in there.

    I need to fold and, thus,...
  14. Hose clamp on bottom of seatpost tube to prevent saddle theft?

    Hey all,
    Has anyone attached something to the bottom of the seatpost tube to prevent someone from running off with the seapost and the saddle? I thought of a hose clamp, but didn't know if there...

    This recent spell of warmer weather has made me focus again on this ebike. I've been relying on my regular bike cause that eventually warms me up when I get into the pedalling.

    Just to catch up,...

    Agree with philybill. I would avoid this ebike vendor. I've had problems with this company as documented here:

    Powell,
    the problem was at that spliced wires. As I mentioned, I would squeeze that area and the motor would engage. I felt something solid inside that tape job. Like an anderson connector in...

    Ok, sending the hub back again. Another $50 shipping charge. Apparently, the “exposed wires” is now “the motor/hall sensor was sheered from something on my end”. This sounds to me like CYA (cover...

    An update on my amped bikes saga. As I reported last time, I shipped the hub back and they said that there were some "exposed wires" so they fixed those and it should be good to go. I tested it out...

    Well, they checked the controller and told me it tested fine. I asked them what they thought if I would connect all the wires directly using electrical tape instead of using those anderson...

    Thanks, macrocircle. I did double and triple checked my connections and I couldn't get it to run (3 wires to motor and 5 to controller). However, I didn't really didn't mess with the black wire...

    I shipped the controller back via USPS. They tried to deliver Saturday, but the offices were closed. I guess the controller will be at the post office till they pick it up. My project is on hold...

    After not getting a response for about a week, I called. I talked to a person named bud via phone a couple of days ago. He asks me to check my connections, which I did. He says that I may have...

    Ok, ran into a problem with the battery not being able to engage (turn) the hub. Checked and re checked all my connections and nothing. Have emailed ampedbike and will await their response.
