  • EDGE 12000W Electric Race Bike

    Hello, this is my Electric Race Bike, using the EDGE frame which is similar to Stealth Bomber.
    -EDGE E-bike Frame
    -72V 150A Sineave Controller
    -72V 26AH Battery
    -QS Motor V3
    -Moto Tires 16"

    Hitting over 50mph+ and crushing gas bikes on the track. Getting maximum torque out of the corners and hits 40mph in 3,5sec (timed), its tons of fun I'm usually the only electric on the track. Unlike the gas motors, the electric delivers power instantly and accelerates like a bat outta hell.

    Motorcycles can usually outrun me on the straightaway but I can lead them and even pass them in the corners.

      Nice build. I've built up a Phasor frame and just love the power, no gears and instant torque.

        Nice!!

        Now I will have to race you, see if you can beat my mighty 6 kW aero-trike :) 60+ mph top end. How heavy is the eBike? looks like in the 100 lbs range.

            And that's no problem dude. I know that very well, and this is all about the fun for me. I really didn't build the trike to roll at 65 mph on every road (like my latest adventure), I built the trike to get to work with the least amount of battery per trip while not having to pay registration, insurance and most notably gas... and the sideeffects of good aero are just that, high top speed. Which is something nice to have.

              That's a very smart option to have.
              My 134v 20ah pack gets the same range as my friends 84v 32ah pack when take the same ride. Just like a car, you don't drive at top speed everywhere you go. It's nice to run at 60%.
              Imagine a 20mph bike doing 12mph everywhere? I have no patience for that. But I like to ride my 60mph bike 35mph and not worry about being on it

                Ebike1 How much heat do you get when you put so much current into the QS Motor 50H motors? I have to imagine that you can only do short bursts.

                How much continuous power can you run without overheating?

                I have Cromotors, and they can only run 3000W continuous without getting above 100 degrees C.

                  I took a 10 mile ride @ 45-50mph on a hot summer day. My motor was burning hot. It didn't over heat though . That was @ 134v with the Kelly KHB 250amp controller .
                  I thtottle for 3 second bursts . I usually do that three times to safely reach top speed without creating any heat
                  P.S. I only ride fast on a deserted country highway not far from my home and I'm very familiar with the terrain

                    I'm guessing the front wheel might possibly lift off the ground if you're not careful eh?

                  Lol. Yes if the front wheel and battery is light.
                  Bicycle parts are light . But if the battery is 72v 30ah and sitting at a low center of gravity, it helps keep the front end down. It also depends on the bikes stance. Raise the back end by using a tall rear shock and it pushes the front end down . Also using motorcycle wheels makes the bike heavier and keeps it grounded. Of course at this point it's becoming part motorcycle. My heavier Ebike is 150lbs and is very comfortable ride on long range rides.
                  I have a light Ebike too. One high power heavy Ebike and one lightweight commuter.
                  We have so many choices of Ebikes today and it's a beautiful thing ;)
