    Something worth checking on your BBS01 or BBS02 during maintenance...

    During an axle/final drive gear strip down to find the cause of another problem, I came across two issues that might be worth checking, if you ever do some big maintenance on your BBS01 or BBS02. I am not sure if this applies to the BBSHD, as I think it is different internally. Maybe someone...

    BBS02 cage thrust bearing replacement help!

    My pedal rotation had become a bit choppy, so I decided to pull out the axle for a look. As you can see, one of the thrust bearings had decided to self destruct, which was causing the rotation issue. I've got a new set on the way from Green Bike Kit, but I'm wondering if anyone on here has...

    Receiving goods from the EU post Brexit - no deal

    Please correct me if I'm wrong. As it stands, when buying goods from a country in the EU, they add tax to value of the country's particular VAT level in the sending country. Then when it reaches the UK, there are no more taxes to pay, because we are currently part of a free trade agreement. If...

I pressed fire and it was delivered a few days ago. After fitting and a few runs of approximately...

    Controller MOSFETS and question on failure.

    A few questions actually, for any techies out there. Take for example a BBS02 9 MOSFET controller. It is my understanding that a controller like this, has 3 MOSFETS allocated per phase wire. If one single MOSFET fails, does that usually cause the controller to become dead? If this is not the...

    Was I asking too much from a Dremel?

    Found my Dremel 3000 this morning, which is a brand new Xmas gift from 2 years ago that I've never used until today. I needed to spot derust some tools, so I popped on the sanding band attachment and leisurely started to derust the tools. After about half hour of use (with short intermittent...

    Is this a dumb-ass idea?

    I'm in a tinkering mood, so fancy converting my AC mains powered lawnmower into a battery powered one.

    Chain cleaning device whilst riding?

    I do a lot of riding along very muddy paths and tracks, and feel that my chain and chainring longevity suffers from crud that sticks to my chain throughout a ride. If it builds up too bad, then I can occasionally get some kind of chain suck, where the chain rides up and jams between the...
