    Upgraded Cyclone mounting brackets

    The Cyclone motor is a good bang-for-your-buck motor and reduction...however...the brackets flex a lot if you are using anywhere near the power it is capable of swallowing. Here are some links to what the general garage-builder has been doing to upgrade the brackets:

    I have taken a steel pipe (cheap, readily available), and sliced it lengthwise to make two "half-pipe" sections. This allowed me to use common U-bolts found at any large hardware store to attach something to a round downtube/seat-tube in a bike frame, without crushing the tube and making a crimp in it.

    The Carl Clark mount makes it easy to change a round downtube to a flat aluminum plate, which is then easy to mount the motor to. By sliding the whole mount higher up (and then tightening it down), it tensions the chain, so no separate chain tensioner is needed.

    Aluminum channel is easy and cheap to source locally, in any major city. If you live in the boonies, you can pay a little more to order it online. http://www.onlinemetals.com/merchant...p=2&top_cat=60 Click image for larger version

        What's holding the Luna factory mounting bracket on the drive side BB?

          Thanks for all the objective information you provide Mr. Spinning Magnets. The cyclone 3000W on 52V captured my interest. Missed finding all the information that is available here, So I went to read and learn on another well known site. After about 9 pages out of over 50, I was overwhelmed and underwhelmed. I thought, not for me. Came back and looked a little further here. Found more information, and as always, in a positive and objective manner. Look forward to more information on the Cyclone in the future. Love my BBSHD and hope to see 40-45 amps in its future, but for now the Cyclone will have to do. Thanks for your articles and posts, as well as everyone else here, that help me achieve my goals.

            Thanks for all the useful information. I was wondering with the aluminum mounting plate can you move the motor left and right before tightening it up to make sure your chain line is correct?

            Also if you mount The with the motor in the triangle, do I assume that you just get rid of the two stock mounting brackets, the ones that connect to the bottom bracket normally?

            I have two BBSHD's and I love them but I'm looking for more power and speed. I'm trying to get information on what battery to use with it. I want good lowdown power but I also want at least 45 mph and 20 miles per charge no peddling. 60v or 72v. I plan on buying the more powerful controller.
