I just looked at the video. I don't know... something doesn't seem Kosher here.

Yeah, right Harry. It doesn't have a transmish. :D

Great stuff, man. Now you gotta do LIPO!

It's like a 2.5times heavier, and half-power version of my electric commuter bicycle. :-)

Which I bet is a ton of fun on the dirt. :-) Nice job working those 38120 cells into a pack that looks like it will hold together. Nice fit and finish too.

Yes, I've tried them, very cool stuff. Makes a speed-control throttle on an Altrax feel MUCH better to use.

so i ve tried the pico amps torrque module and its a way much better feeling to ride !
but you have to try all the adjustments to know whats best for your application.
i also got a new aluminium rear sprocket, the old one was stainless steel and is too heavy. with the alu one the accleration is much better

RONNY! thank you very much for riding your bike hard! I see way too many videos of of people using half throttle with both feet dragging on the ground. Keep it pinned. Do you have any video updates of the bike in action?

Hello Ronny,

Really cool! Are you planning to make a motard? Do you have plans to make it street legal?

Hi Ronny
das nenn ich mal air time;)

28 April 2012, 0011
@ yankee1919 no iam not planning to make it street legal. in germany its very hard to get a street lincence for "prototypes". but hey i made it for the dirt! i use my silverado truck to carrie the bike around (i like the american way), in addition the bike gets more heavier with lights and that stuff.
by the way iam planning a electric bobber conversion with hub motor for street legal riding

How cool wouldnt it be to get a pro rider on that in a competition, seems like a big gap you are jumping! And who knows you might get some people start ordering bikes afterwards ;)

11 September 2012, 1129
Yawn....how about first elmoto back flip! Kidding about the yawn....heavy duty nards required for those jumps!

You should show Ken Roczen that bike if you get the opportunity.

Really cool Ronny,

Is the metal use to cover your battery pack or actual battery holder?

Los Angeles

22 May 2013, 1414
Yeah the cover prevents the pack to side motion,
Two springs in the back and front helps to stay in place.
Pack change in 2 minutes possibl
My Elcon charger need to be reprogrammed, when i got him back
I can start the Season ! 446144624463

under selected voltage.

23 May 2013, 0805
Thanks Ronny,

The battery pack looks awesome, it even looks a little "hermit crabish".

4850nLiPo battarie paxk works very well and had lots of power!!! Jumped the fmx ramp on a 60feet gap. So when hobbyking got some nanotechs in stock i will build me a nother pack for shure!

13 August 2013, 1323
Nice ronny! Looks like it is holding up well to your punishment!

So did another few cycles on my LiPo,
Lots of fun!
Ordered a set of new brushes for my agni.

04 September 2013, 1749
Do you have any videos on you tube? What is top speed geared at?

05 September 2013, 0819
Make sure you don't let the pack sit with all the LiPo buzzers/voltage indicators plugged into it, or they will drain the first 2 cells in each pack in a few days.

13 September 2013, 0400
Yeah i use these buzzers for riding only. The pack sit and wait with 3.7V per cell. When i go riding i make a charge. I use liPo medics for balance and discharging. A Lipo batterie is like a baby you have to look at him. Cant wait to get a second pack for next season. Then i ve got twins ;-)
