T0b3yyy (15 days ago)
You know, there's these things called "e-bikes"?
esqueue (15 days ago)
Yup, because all devices are 100% efficient and loses nothing in heat. Yes it is definitely low priced but after efficiency loses and taxes, it probably costs about twice what you listed which is still great. It would cost me at least 4x due to my high energy uses and billing tier but that's another thing.
Antonio Torres (15 days ago)
Wish I was there to help. There is this called JD Weld, could get at almost anywhere. Cost efficient and very effective

Adeum Deus (16 days ago)
Jesus H Christ - there is no such thing as a "Tesla" battery. It is literally a lithium ion battery. That's it. I have an unlimited supply of them at my corner gas station.
Mind Breaker (16 days ago)
I built a RC airplane and when I was programming my ESC my transmitter throttle was reversed and my Tiny little miter woul go full throttle.

I love u wren!
MJR07 (18 days ago)
I'm a complete noob to stuff like this, but instantly noticed that the wheel stopping dead would be a problem when actually under load. Then it happened, I felt proud hahahah!
Keith Jenkins (18 days ago)
FAT BIKE electric conversion
Edward Azizi (19 days ago)
What esc did you use for the bike. How many amps?
Tristan Scheffers (19 days ago)
make an amphibious bike, a bike that can float and move in the water
spinnanz (19 days ago)
pausing at 10:28. File a flat edge on the motor shaft for the grub screw in the small alloy pulley to grab, or drill a hole in the shaft for the grub screw to go into the shaft slightly.....

ArchieRT 246 (20 days ago)
Make a electric skateboard. But 3D print it. 3D print the deck. Trucks. And anything that can be. Then put the battery and and other stuff on.

Cmon. JB Weld.
Michael Berna (20 days ago)
I love using PLA, but here in southern California, I can only use PLA for indoor climate controlled parts. I made bicycle parts before (water bottle cage, etc.) From PLA and it ended up warping from the heat on a hot day. Above 110F, not recommended.

Wren sounds like tod howard
Sergio Díaz Nila (22 days ago)
just get a regular bike, it is so much better than an ebike. this should be titled, when you are an engineer but know shit about mechanical design and less about bikes.
Josh Chavers (22 days ago)
Welcome to the wonderful world of learning how to build and fix bicycles. It wobbled because the motor bent and broke spokes which bent the rim. 😁
Inés SA (23 days ago)
I believe wren's reaction to cmike falling would be that of a scared puppy

Amazing work man 💪👌
James Hart (23 days ago)
Um, as a E-bike rider, you did a interesting job, but in essence you built a electric scooter with pedals. But hey, you did it yourself and that could not have been easy.

Wh - J - quantity of energy - energy as is W - measure of power - energy in time - derivative from J - J/h -/- V youtube knowledge is awesome
Connor Wright (24 days ago)
And now you can just buy e bikes
Dave Sobani (24 days ago)
Press F for Cmike... , that looked gnarly bro
Phantonn (24 days ago)
arent wheels supposed to still spin after you stop using energy on a bike. wtf is that friction holy shit it stops second you stop the electric motor.
Hontom (24 days ago)
1:56 nice shutter speed and fidget spinner match
Jordan Hasty (24 days ago)
F in the chat for cmike
romps s (24 days ago)
Wren: look at cmike riding that one wheel like a pro: Fate: hello darkness my old friend
Paulo Fernando (24 days ago)
did they have to any programming for the throttle and the speed controller and also how did they get the wheel to keep going, thx for your help. :)
TheMaser (25 days ago)
Could have used silver soldier
Doug Furr (25 days ago)
Entire premise of this video is just scr3wwed up. No parts are "Tesla" branded, atleast use Tesla branded 18650s. Should have just used a Bafang BBSHD or similar kit. I would not trust that build on somebody I dislike, much less my wife. I did however like your energy comparison segment.
