Superglue seems to gush out and get everywhere - I had to buy acetone to dissolve it, because it happened so often (and acetone doesn't dissolve it terribly well). @PC2017 Fair comment, I'll stick with this self-portrait for a bit.

I had the bike upside down put a small amount of super glue on the magnet then placed another magnet on top with the aid of long nosed pliers
And got glue on my fingers but that was because
The tube was new and had to be opened and
It when on my fingers

Not just me then - keeping the tube stored upright prevents lid sealing and initial over spill but not from getting it everywhere thereafter :mad:

I like it - Tbh I must change mine, I have my black controller dawned with gold heat-sinks to rescale.

They wouldn't sell very much if people managed to squeeze out tiny drops like in the adverts - making superglue tubes single use by design is far more profitable. Perhaps using a chemical emulsifier to produce an easier to apply consistency similar to UHU, would result in a less super glue? Even if by some miracle I manage to not splash it all over like the Henry Cooper, it's turnd solid by the time I need it next, unlike UHU which manages to store for years between uses.

I can't find Henry Cooper's first "Splash it all over" Brut advert

You've got GOLD heatsinks?!?!? Where do you live? ;) Next,I'll need to locate someone who owns those even more heat conductive diamond heatsinks...

Hello everyone, I'm leeroy and this is my first foray into the world of ebikes! I have to say I've enjoyed reading the many posts here and gained quite a bit of knowledge!

This is my planet X jack flash 26" with a 250w yose power front hub kit, I've had a spin around the block and it's a lot of fun, I'll only be using it for on road in the dry.

I'm just waiting for some more velcro so I can get rid of the (temporary) tie raps and hold the battery down better. I'm also waiting for a longer wolf tooth mount as I decided not to use a rivnut, maybe I should?;)
If you haven’t already done so, cover up the exposed Yellow and Red connectors to prevent water / dust / debris getting into them.

Hi, Roy here. New to this and have never done a conversion. I have bought a TSDZ2 to convert my bicycle. Have not started yet due to health issues. Would appreciate hints tips or tricks please.
