Thanks Aidan, you're right about that. I was thinking aluminum to save weight, the wheel is the worst place to add weight. I might just add a disc to the front, I need them with the way I ride, SF is crazy too. There's no guarantee that my idea will work so I'm going to hold off on the rear until I can think of something better.Saw another ecoreco today, I almost went out of my way to see if he wanted to race, then realized how that might come off as weird (some people have no interest in modifying scooters and use them solely for transportation). I'm really happy with my scooter, but wish it had another 5-8 mph and disc brakes. I've been thinking of how to add disc brakes and I might just add them to the front, it seems a bit risky (to the motor) to add it to the rear. I've also thought about maybe adding another hub motor in the front, but haven't full thought that one through yet. I came home today and got 3 packages in the mail, it was all the stuff I ordered last friday. I got the 2 12ah lipos, the new wheel bearings, and a spare tube. Can't wait to get these lipos installed and go for a long ride, no more range anxiety! I mounted my gopro to my front forks and recorded my morning ride the other day. I don't think you can tell but right after I take off I turned right a bit, hit the throttle, and broke the rear wheel loose
The headset is noisy in the video because its been coming loose, so I apologize for that, also the front bearing is shot so you can hear that as well. Other than that its not too bad of a video, I was riding like an a**hole because I was late, an extra 5mph would really help on those long streets, the acceleration is phenomenal!
Ride the Lightning.
