    I have a nice little encapsulated one with a built in heatsink which I got for my original lights. Should be able to mount it somewhere on the frame without much hassle - but I need to then put an inline switch onto it which will be very clunky. Its a real bummer that the built in regulator had...

    I am a bit gutted today. I ordered a pair of 6V lights because I had the speed sensor splitter cable and wanted to get some dash controlled lights. They arrived today and I installed them. Very neat job overall and I was very happy for about 10mins. The rear light has three leads and one is...

    Finally got my front twin cog setup with a derailleur. Needed to get a derailleur adapter mount with a fat bike spacer to get the reach, these are expensive and hard to get. Was a bit of a bugger to setup. Discovered that the outer ring of the two ring kit has a slight outward cup to it which...

    Finally got this project complete. Have taken my first two rides with the TSDZ2 (250W). Using the lowest setting and occasional boosts it barely made a dent in my 12Ah battery over a 6mile run. Will hopefully take it out for a longer run tomorrow to get a better feel for the range. Find that...

    I am going to bind them with duck tape, separate layers with lino strips - but I want an outer case of metal or plastic. Small size means that if I go for a second battery I can mount them on either side of the pannier carrier. without them taking to much space. Shoog

    Got my cells today. Was surprised at how small they were. Going to build a pack which is 30cm long, 10cm tall and 7cm wide. Don't have a case or the BMS yet (haven't even dispatched from China yet) but will start linking them together and leave exposed tabs for the BMS. Shoog

    Going to see if mine will fit into a square PVC gutter downpipe - though the tolerances are very tight at 1mm spare.

    Looking for help on ideas on wheel and hub sizes for a trike project

    Consider wheelchair wheels for the fronts. Side axles with cage bearings on thick axles. Take off the hand holds. However not so easy to attach disk brakes.

    Going to make my own bus bars out of copper pipe 6S end to end using the screw together feature, also going to use a BMS. Charger is going to be a bit of a problem but will probably go commercial from China

    They look like a serious supplier of car chargers and battery stuff, this is probably just a side line to take advantage of their Chinese contacts.

    Finally pulled the trigger on the Slovakian seller on Ebay. Only went for 25 cells in the end as I think initially a 12Ah battery should give me about 40-50km range. Will see how it all pans out and then think about building another matched battery if it works out well. Shoog

    Yes pondering the build implications.
