@Maxid can you please advise where you put the beads? Is it in the tyre or in the tube?

Thanks for your input. By the way I have found this company for anyone is Australia www.abcbeads.com.au

I haven’t bought any but it’s the only company i could find selling them in Australia.


#102

I found these guys but I cannot confirm if they work or not: http://www.innovativebalancing.com/


#103

In the tube - they need to be able to move freely in order to work. It takes some time though without the proper tools.


#104

What quote did you get for the pulley and the adapter?


#105

Only looked at the pulley which was $15 for raw materials, not sure how much shipping is


#106

I decided that weights would mean I could use puncture sealing gloop in my tubes where the pearls need dry tubes…


#107

how about both in one? Apparently.


#108

Wow. Check out the mark up!


#109

Holyshit. This is pretty much why this hobby is so expensive. Unreasonable markups :frowning:
One can find reasonably priced motor mounts(thanks to @dickyho), blanks decks, battery pack one can assemble economically. But motors and wheels have crazy markups.

@dickyho, please help us get some decent motors for less :pray:

I’m on less than £90 for all four wheels, including 2 vex pulleys and Pom adapters!


#111

I do have cheap 6 inch wheels setup for sell, just the USA tax policy have been very strictly agains china products, I already have some heavy packages got detained by the custom. so I still not post the set on sell yet…


#112

tbh, when it comes to motors they are expensive because of copper and laminate sheeting, if u wanna cheap out on a motor be my guest, but dont be surprised when it fails, or u melt ur windings

as for everything else. time isnt free. even if i charge you my states min wage/hr (7.25) u are still looking at almost 400USD for a 10s5p 30Q pack and thats with me profiting MAYBE 30$ (not including power switch) and thats just the cells being welded, the bms (charge only), and the misc materials needed to make a QUALITY pack


#113

@dickyho can you show us your 6inch wheels ect? As far as i know there shouldnt be problems shipping to EU right?


#114

yes, no problem to ship to EU.


#115

are those your flywheel pulleys?


#116

no, this 44T pulleys, I was specially made for this wheel.


#117

Those tires are different than all of those 6 inch cheap ones? They look different. Can you post more pictures of them and rims? What is the price?


#118

this wheel I selected quality is very good. aluminum rim and hub in one piece.
the whole set without motors need 115us+shipping


#119

Those are airless? :frowning:


#120

Yeah, assembling battery safely is definitely time taking and is worth the money. If I assemble them using NESE modules then it’s going to cost around $230 but then I am putting my time and energy into it. I was talking about motors costing $120 when they are being bought for $50 or less. If everything is marked up for more than double then the hobby is only affordable by those with a disposable income.

To put things in perspective how expensive these parts are, this is a motor bike that you can buy for $360. Now imagine a motor costing $120, a single motor.
