    What can a Cyclone 3000w bike really do?

    Here's a good 'explanation': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fkl1t_DbRD8

    Very nice!! Indeed, we need more good videos like this showing off.

    Also, would you mind posting more details as to how your motor mount works? I would like to merge your thread into the , cough cough, "official" motor mount thread.

          What I should probably do greg is take the two seconds required to learn something like google sketchup where that can be sent to the machine shop....I work with a lot of different fabrication businesses and water cutters and who truly knows what at work in the daytime and it would be a cinch for me to get the part made, but first I need to have it properly defined. Also remember that there may be individual frame differences that would call for a MM here, or a MM there, and with the cyclone, and the way the chain system runs down the length of the bike, even like one MM deviation at the critical juncture can cause disaster - of course you also cannot afford ANY movement of the motor when underway either. Thats' why the engine needs as solid a mount as possible - and when I do the actual math on the motor/battery combination i'm using, I see I'm making a real 5.4 hp....so that is like what you'd see some kid racing at the local dirt track on a go-kart, and as such it probably calls for a similar mounting system in my mind. I don't however, suggest using the mount as an adjustment for the chain, and there's lots of tensioners out there in places like amazon for every application. I'm also MUCH happier having the motor inside the triangle for reasons that become apparent immediately when you get off road, but that means I also need to find a nice chain guard, but in the end that's another part that can be sourced from a thousand places.

          Here's the other thing that occurs to me: sure, I could teach people all day to put a cyclone on their fatbike, but would I also be getting them to apply permatex threadlocker red to every single nut an bolt, religiously, like I do? Would they then pretend they are the local track inspector prior to every ride, giving the machine a full safety inspection? I would want to know that at least people are using a real torque wrench and the threadlocker.

            The sideplate modification is holding 6 kW with 60 mph runs... I don't think we need to overthink this mount stuff. There are many ways to skin the cat...

            And just tighten the nuts to stun and you'll be fine.... (last famous words)

            :D
