There is enough text about pros/cons and overall excitement about DD in my previous topics #fliess.
Here I just wanted to put a bit more photos, so that hub fans may also try to build their own DD and finally start riding normal wheels haha.
By “bulletproof” in topic name I meant the reliability/durability of the motor protective cases, which are pretty heavy now, but should serve and shine (V4A stainless steel) forever. As my own experience shows, anything thinner than 2mm gonna be crashed by rocks or curbstones, which leads to broken magnets.
Anyway, I like to ride a lot/fast and I never care which surface. So if my motors gonna crash, it will happen pretty soon If anybody can quickly calculate how strong should be a hit to bend V4A stainless steel tube > 5mm thick, I will appreciate
I was naive to think that stainless steel is machinable by my basic tools
But with proper inserts even my cheap minilathe can deal with it
Shit happened to my minilathe
Instead of shitty sk3 bearing
Luckily not a part of a motor
Exactly 605g each, I was surprised. Not that much by heaviness but equaliness
Don’t keep magnets like on the photo. Once they suddenly collapsed together and 3 of them were gone
Loctite wants a clean surface
Haha, I was hoping to disassemble the motor by screwing these 4 bolts slowly and hence pushing the wheel mount out. Bad idea to screw against the magnets if mount fitting is very tight
Here we go, without this device would not be possible to disassemble the motor
These parts definitely don’t look like new anymore after all these experiments and 1000+ km
2 by Celsius outside. Battery gives a shit btw
And thanks for watching…
