Took off the 160mm rotor and the front hydraulic brake system and swapped it out
with a 200mm rotor and a SRAM G2 R hydraulic system.


Smoother stopping it feels like.

Ride Safe you mugs! :cool:

Good looking bike HP, you never want to deplete a lipo battery less than 20% charge. That's a pretty universal rule every engineer agrees on if you read about them. Think about your smart phone, when charging it never goes to 100%, mine shuts off at 85%. If you want 100% you need to plug it in again then it will. Also the ph will shut down at around 20% even though it says 0% to protect the battery and the phone.

I for one welcome our new Electric Overlords. Currently upgrading an old 24v 250w kit to 36v and a larger battery, and literally just ordered a raft of 18650's to build a 52v battery for an all new 1500w rear wheel setup for a tandem bike that should be arriving here on Sunday. And yes, the quiet is lovely sometimes. (The small motor pictured here is getting moved to a second bike. )

First and Foremost, Welcome to the forums @Steve_KJ7WQK ✌️

Now your wild cargo bike looks like it'll be a blast when you get'er done :)

I'd def go with at least 52v 30ah battery for your setup.

What makes you go with a 1500w rear hub drive?

Ride Safe! :cool:

Thanks Human Person! The rear hub was chosen for it's simplicity, and the price was right. My plan is for a 52v 20ish ah build. We'll see what I can do with 100 18650's. Tandem's are fun, aren't they?

I've never rode on a tandem bike but seen them in action and the riders always looked like they were Happy :)
