today i rode it around the neiborhood with one of my battereys on my new mount..... its starting to get dark way sooner this time of year:( ....it was peaceful.... the sky was dark and all you could hear was the sound of the wind blowing the leaves. i was able to do some wheelies with the extra weight on the back....... plus i have 11/65 gear ratios wich are nice for them.the bike feels different now thoght just riding down the street. i like it though:)

today i got the battereys:D i just got some more money today to buy a controler........ i will end up buying a 36v 40amp control someday..but for now untill i get a new motor i just bought the mx500 control to see how it works....... im really tired tonight so ill take care of it tomorow..... the battereys didnt come with the wires so ill have to run down to ACE harware and buy some wire and connectors then soder them on the battereys...... does anyone know if the stock control will handle the 36v for now untill the controll gets to my door? im kinda excited to try it

I am in the middle of a project myself. I have been reading about all of the upgrades people are doing. Where can one buy these up graded parts. The only thing I have bought so far is the XP-700 motor and controller. It seem I need a better controller to get to the magic number of 30mph. Let me know

i finally bought a 36v charger today :D

eBay Motors: 36 Volt 1.8A Battery Charger Electric Scooter Bike 36V (item 370115695988 end time Nov-29-08 13:01:18 PST)

just finish put my bike together today...... about to go ride it.... i noticed my drum brake is doing terrible! when i was puting my back wheel back on i notice the pad is starting to chip and i had to glue a piece back on....and is basically down to the nails that hold it in there... i might really need one with my new speeds... though brake drums are cheesey i was thinking of puting a bigger brake drum on it so there would be more surface area to stop wich should make it better i just need to get a better quality brake drum......... the frame looks super when you put everything on it

well according to my speedo my top speed i hit today was 18.6mph with the 65tooth sprocket....... the accl is super nice with the speed the bike is pefect for a electric cuz of the decent amount of speed and accl run times are now only about 40 mins but i get a good distance with it...... im also will be leaving the 11/65 gearing for now...... in a few weeks i will be geting another power patrol batterey to replace my older one cuz i only got 2 new ones before and my old batterey im using for the moment is almost completly drained and its most likely holding the 2 new ones back from there full power.........then if all were new it could help with power and run time

well........ its winter time.... it also snowed for the first time yesturday and i will be holding off the project for a few months............. during this time though will be a great time for doing all the welds and seting up the frame for the 48v setup when i get a hold of my friends welder. and wll be saving up money. then when spring comes along i will be working on it some more and seting the 48v setup. i do belive the control will be the key to having a perfect 48vset up so it not going to be no chezzy 50amp contro from tnc
anyways i will enjoy the snow untill then

i got my new rear tire in the mail..... its just a rear wheel assembly
but i was kinda mad cuz they sent me the wrong one
...this was the one i ordered
3.00-4 Rear Wheel Assembly with #25 Chain Sprocket#
now wat i got was a strange looking tire that had super small bearings that stuck out way farther, the free hub sounded all rattlely and like crap, and the rims didnt even match one was like complete sliver then the other was cheap greyone, then i took the rim apart(in half) and the spacer was completely used as you would easy seen.
seriously the spacer was completely rusted!!
i honestly think the only thing good was the tire it self
so i complained they said i would have to pay for shipping($12)to get it back to them and they would send me a new one that would aslo have to pay to shipped so i said srew it...

well ima save the new tire for spring though but right now ive decided to do something no one has ever done..... im going to mess aroud with my old tire and try to put studds in it
i know gassers have done this but ive never heard of a electric pocket having studds or even riding in snow for that matter the main thing to get done is making the bike *snow prof * then the traction.....
this experment might fail but i have never added studds to any tire before and if it does it wont really matter cuz the tube and tire are tosted!
