    Been working on batteries for e bike im working on. When im done with these i have to learn how to lace and true a wheel then the build really begins. Motor is going to be cyclone 3000w mid drive with 72v battery. 4" fat tire bike im using a 3speed internally geared rear hub and changing over to hydrolic brakes. Sikk fat wheel cruiser for the bike and i plan on modifying the frame. This will probably take a couple months or more but i said i would post progress IMG_20200605_130834.jpg IMG_20200605_130852.jpg IMG_20200605_130923.jpg IMG_20200605_130907.jpg

    i love bikes

    “back in the day” my friend Dave worked at a bike shop and used to twist lace his wheel builds. i wish i had pics of some of his odyssey t1000 wheel builds. they were pretty freaking strong. it was an amazing process to watch.

    please post updates

    what exact bike is this for?

    i’ll have to go back through the thread.....

    I have a few 1/8th scale cars I do for onroad speed runs and they are 8s and go well over 120 mph. 20s I cant imagine, even if it is pushing a human on it. The torque will be crazy.

    Thats cool as hell id like to see those cars. Ya it probably will be and hopefully do 40+ mph. Thats why i decided to go with internally geared hub instead of derailler so chain stays inline doesnt move side to side as shifts and should be able to use a heavier duty chain but its just a guess at this point but i wanted to go big. So 20s is 72v nominal and like 84v charged batteries im using are 8000 mah so im hoping to get around 15-20 miles out of a charge without pedalling but should be a lot more even with light pedalling

    Gearing is one thing that I havent really missed after switching to almost exclusively electric. Would be interested in seeing how you do it when you get to that stage...
