Building an Electric Bike

Building an Electric Bike

Building an electric bike isn’t easy, especially when using unconventional electronics, such as a drone motor. After 3 years of development, I have a bike that I’m finally happy with… but who knows what I’ll change next…

    I wanna try to make electrik bike

  5. That bike felt like a lab rat…😂😂

  6. Which motor you can use please tell me please

  7. Now all you need is pedal assist,

  8. IT sounds like r2d2

  9. Thanks for the EDUCATION on DIY e bike building. Got some ideas from your explainations!

  10. No one knows the exact day or hour the rapture will happen is a certainty and The rapture will happen without a doubt, but there will be a revival NOW in the USA and worldwide FIRST which is what this is leading to now, many many souls turning to Christ Jesus for sure .   THEN the rapture will happen after this when the last soul is brought in to Christ Jesus’ protection . we are in the last days for sure( and yes a few years converts to hours and goes by quickly , and the rapture is highly likely to happen ANYTIME within the next several years OR  MAYBE EVEN LESS  , 3-5 years  Max OR LESS  If that , but no more , due to the time table has run out for Gods plan on gentile christians according to > all time lines< , references of biblical events, weather catastrophes, wars etc jewish variables ie third temple construction , red heifers being born , sacrifices starting soon etc. THE RAPTURE CAN HAPPEN NOW at ANY TIME make no mistake !! . Anywhere between 2021 -2027 the rapture can happen . The True Church of Christ Jesus will be GONE!  Christ taking the Church Out of the earth is closer than many even believe . And when many millions disappear  without a trace, aunts uncles friends  etc  what will you say then because it will happen ?  Please awake to Christ  Jesus which is  the ONLY hope  NOW and dont let yourself  find out it IS all true later  when its too late  …for anyone who sees this and doesnt know what to do please If you havent given your life and heart to Christ Jesus you will have REAL BIG problems way bigger than any problems you have Ever had If you are left here on earth after the Rapture . After the Rapture The USA , Worldwide , will face More evils , Inner city chaos, firearm wars etc etc ,power and water , food shortages etctec than it Has EVER been seen Before and you surely dont want to be Here then . We Have Time NOW to change , please seek Christ Jesus while there is still time to save ! no one knows the day or hour of the rapture ,But the rapture will start out just like any other day …..The Rapture will Take Place In the day In Broad daylight, sunny day , In an Instant FLASH without ANY warning , and there will be peoples Driver Ids, wallets found in various parking lots , Purses bill folds Found at work etc etc with NO explanation , and People VANISHING so No One can refute it has taken place. .The Rapture Will Take place But we may have several years left but not many more , as many are turning to Jesus and this revival taking place and many still being brought into the Glorious kingdom of Jesus and Until the last soul is accounted for , is all that is preventing the rapture from happening. We are close , Several years goes by quickly so we are very close !romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. And The antichrist is for Israel , the jews revealing NOT for the Church , and does not have to be revealed first before the rapture as many christians believe . there is nothing holding the rapture from happening Now. The antichrist is for the jews NOT the church which is the restrainer holding back the antichrist from being revealed . The church will Be GONE Before the antichrist is revealed . The church will Not even Need to know who the antichrist is as Its for only the jews , as Gods plan switches back to them once the true church believers are Gone. 2 thesss 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.8 And >then< shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

  11. Es heben sich schon viele mit dem Rad den Kopf eingefahren- auch junge Menschen- perfekte Organspender

  12. Can you give me the link of the site where you ordered that hub motor please??

  13. Way over complicated and shockingly over priced utter bullshit to be honest.

  14. You should look into having 1000 watt hub motors for both front and rear. I have been seeing them advertised more for off road riders. Does having both really help?

  15. That’s awesome! How much did it end up costing?

  16. Damn, that VESC is expensive.

  17. I think it would’ve been a little bit easier to update the first bike to disc brakes, I think

  18. This is a great content. However, I’d suggest taking break between sentences and speaking slowly and explaining a bit more to an average user. Thank you!

  19. I want to do this on an esr.


  21. Hi please help. I have 2x 12v batteries at 220amp each. Connected as 24v. I’ve used a 24v starter motor with the solenoid removed. I’ve used it. For roughly 1 minute and there was hardly any power under load. Cables from jump leads will get hot .
    I can’t understand this. When this system should turn over a truck engine easy. If anyone can help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

  22. Time for my monthly viewing.

  23. Seen this before, loved watching it from the start again. Amazing the work that you’ve done and with a 3d printer

    It is a good innovation

  25. Theonlyonestanding February 14, 2021 @ 9:04 pm

    This looks fantastic

  26. sandy creative tutor February 14, 2021 @ 9:04 pm

    Wow amazing

  27. Build a bike that can handle a 300lbs. Rider that would be impressive. By the way, try a potentiometer this eliminates the need for a computerized controler.

    How much does it cost big aluminium pulley on wheel?? You made a lot of reseach and they are very interesting. But the price of motors, controllers and etc (untill now) too high in compare wih direct drive. And very important thing in your case) is to use suspension and 12-20 inch light weight wheels . Probably to use direct drive motor as a mid….i don,t now exactly….Thank you very much for interesting videos!!!

  29. Love the bike…how about a self leveling (in one direction) electric unicycle.

  30. Him: sayint “a lot has changed since then”

    Me: gets an ad of the new samsung galaxy s21

  31. Wear gloves! Come off at speed without and you’ll need reconstructive surgery because you automatically brace your hands when landing… Great, informative videos!

  32. How can I get it ?

  33. No bms is so iffy. It rlly doesnt much space at all and could easily fit on that bike

  34. djordje vernacki February 14, 2021 @ 9:18 pm

    nice bike

  35. Can I get a "I had to step off" speed version with good uphill assistance?

  36. The Name Is Irrelevant February 14, 2021 @ 9:20 pm

    Awesome video!

  37. Enough of the specs I don’t want to build a damn thing where can I buy it

  38. fantastic job. thanks

  39. I wanted to ask a question, as I was enthralled watching this construction project.

    Did you ever consider configuring the motor to drive directly off the gearing system on the bike itself rather than a standalone torque wheel?

  40. someone please give this guy the proper ebike

  41. Dipak kumar Kumar February 14, 2021 @ 9:27 pm

    Do you know to make motor which is used in this electric cycle please learn me

  42. Utter bullshit this stuff .

  43. Gladiate Solid50 February 14, 2021 @ 9:30 pm

    Is it unreasonable to try to make a 72 volt battery pack and a 9000 watt hub motor fit in a plus bike frame? Ex:

  44. I’ve only built 1 ebike so far. I took my 25 year old mountain bike got a cheap 1kw hub motor and controller, a 48V 12Ah battery and Bob’s your uncle! Cheap fun transportation!

    Now that I’ve gotten used to that it’s time to go big. 3kw huh motors are readily available so that’s tempting and isn’t too expensive. However 8kw mid drive motors are even more tempting as more power is always more fun. I’m concerned about fitting it into a frame and considering trying to build my own frame. Fitting a large battery, minimum 72V and decent capacity isn’t small or light. Bodging up a mount for that 8kw motor needs careful consideration.
    When I research buying battery packs big enough for that it makes me rethink just buying a whole ebike and the only one that offers enough performance is the Cyclone 18Kw bikes. They are about 4k USD but shipping from Taiwan costs a bloody arm and a leg.
    Thanks for getting me thinking about pissing away large amounts of hard earned cash on a new ebike

    Keep this quite and trade it with you humans. Don’t go to Tesla

  46. briliant

  47. Great project, i hope someday develope something like that.
    Thank’s for share it !!

  48. Богдан Грицеляк February 14, 2021 @ 9:32 pm

    and I would buy the same ones

  49. Hello. Thanks for the interesting ideas. What is your opinion – can I use a regular 24v 500w controller for 6354 motor? Intends to modernize a hand-held bicycle for a wheelchair. Regeneration is not required because interference-free running is a priority. And I wonder if you have an integrated freewheel clutch? Which one?

  50. Богдан Грицеляк February 14, 2021 @ 9:36 pm

    sorry I don’t understand English…so can you tell me where did you get these motors
