Re: 860C V0.7.0 strange temp setting issue

My system has been switched to an 860C with the latest 0.7.0 firmware. First let me say the new firmware has solved the surge issue coming out of settings. Good to know!! that was a dangerous issue. New issue. In setting under motor temp I am not able to just set min and max values. It acts like th...

Re: TSDZ2 mid drive with 860C, 850C or SW102 displays only -- Flexible OpenSource firmware (Casainho code only)

I have two displays: - older 850C (TFTGDV4A60 HHY.100 V5.2 201709142025) - newer 850C (TFTGDV2.3CL60 HH2.0 V5.2 20190506 0104). I can easily upload any custom firmware to the new 850C. I use bootloader to upload. I can't upload any of the newer firmware (v0.7.0, v0.6.0) to the old 850C every time t...

Since would be nice to have the same assist levels working, maybe on torque mode we could consider a fixed cadence of 50 RPM which is...

I will replace the bearing, do the motor temperature dissipation mods and switch to the 850C display. Too bad i already bought it a while ago, i would have bought the 860C now. Next time i guess.
860C display quality is really a good improvement, important for reading outside during the day.

I am sorry for the delayed response. The result from the testing are as follows: 1. With the light off. Exactly the same behaviour as 0.56.2. The motor is going in power burst for 1/4 turn starting from the point where the left pedal is on top. 2. With the lights on. The motor is going into almost ...

Not sure is anyone brought this up but I just got a new 860C wit the 070 firmware and on startup it says 850C firmware.
Just letting you know, it is not a big deal.
Thanks, will be corrected on next version.

Re: What is the best motor for a mid drive build?

Hi, when it comes to building an ebike multiple factors come to mind; performance, efficiency, weight, cost and availability of parts. If performance is to be moderate (i.e. 25-30km/h) then what motor comes to mind for building a mid-drive? (MY1018 is one that is lightweight cost effective and mode...

The usability of having to calibrate the torque sensor each ride would be too much for her. She expects the bike to operate just like a car. Turn it on and go. Seems you didn't understand.

Does anyone have a link to the 860C display manual? I have one and pulled the remote switch off it without looking at which connector it was one. It will plug into both but the color only matches one of them but want to make sure that is the right one. One connector is longer than the other also. T...

I am still using the LCD3, I have a 850c in the drawer because I rely on EMTB mode which is like a progressive torque mode. It is great and I believe solves all of the issues you are raising. That is because you never tried the torque sensor full calibration, because it is only available on latest ...

Re: Using power tool batteries (drill & string trimmer) to power a tsdz2 (48v motor)

If I understand correctly, the firmware can be configured for any voltage between 20v and 60v, correct? Would it be sensible to wire each pair of my appliance batteries in parallel, and then serialize the two sets, to effectively have a 40v 93 Wh battery power a 48v motor? Is there a problem mixing...

Do you know if this special firmware works with our current versions as an add on or is it something that works with the factory firmware?

Just an FYI I have been running my motors at 16s 67.2V and it's been holding up well. Keep in mind this is MTB and I mostly ride at level 1 & 2 at 80 & 120 so I'm not pushing heavy amps.
Good to know!!

What do you mean by 80 and 120?

It looks like your newest version for the 860C is getting very close to being ready for me to try it, but right now I'm still on version 20 beta 1 this is the closest thing I can find to the motor current ramp. Is this it and what setting would you try first? You need to ask on the right thread, no...
