Re: How much power is too much power? (hub motor)

So are the pedals a joke, or a fraud? Neither. They work great. I like to go really slow on it too. In fact most of the time I’m under 40mph. But once in a while, around midnight, when the roads are totally empty... So whats it got? Srry i have to know. Nice, nice bike. Clean, neat, comfy looking, ...

Re: How much power is too much power? (hub motor)

If I had a little more power it would probably be perfect. If it was breaking parts that would probably be too much until I had to make it stronger. As it is right now it tops out at 80mph... I’m good on the top end but I could use some more phase amps

What do you base that on?

Do you know the internal components are rated to go that high, IOW the 72V max rating is just nominal? Even then wouldn't that target 20S?
The asi bac controllers can do 22s. They run best on 20s.

Re: 72V Lipo Build 70C with 21S?

I've decided to give up looking for the more common 4and 5S packs that are pretty much unavailable at rational prices. I plan a 2P using 3-6S with 1-3S which are more available and either disconnect or remove one of the cells for 20 in total. Or, is it possible to run 21S without damaging the BAC 8...

Re: 10kg+ hub motors, too much unsprung weight?

Yeah it’s tough to find the traction with the qs205 sometimes, find it skipping forward on acceleration clear on up to 80mph. It warns you in a hard lean with the stutter as well. But I like it. It’s kind of between a hardtail and a full suspension sometimes, though maybe I just need a more expensiv...

Re: Reputable suppliers of LFP LiFePO4 pouch cells

I just got a 4.4kwh pack of 60ah cells from battery hookup They aren’t very big. They come as 2p 120ah modules. Easy to separate into two cells. Have a 2.5mm thick piece of foam between them, non adhesive.

Around 225wh/kg and cost $115/kWh.. gonna pull 5c should be no problem.

Re: Who knows anything about preventing paint chips?

Not gonna happen. Follow the instructions on the can for painting and clear coating. Then don’t damage it for several months. Paint does get stronger with age but it’s never very strong anyway. I use only rustoleum 2/1 ultracover. My best advice is to use a color you don’t need to clear coat for whe...

The 205 is already very heavy. Before I got it I also wanted a 273 but when I finally received my 205 I realized the 273 would h...

Re: Pricing - 45mph cruise, 60mph top, 50 mile range (cruise speed)

Sadly the range limit is in charging. At random 110v plugs on the streets the most you can pull is about 1000w before blowing a circuit. So for a 50mi range at 45mph cruise you are looking at about 5hrs of 10 miles range of charge per hour. That really sucks. What about level 2 EV charging stations?...

Re: High Voltage high current DC power supply

I haven’t found a 120ac plug that can handle charging at more than 1500W dc. Most times I just do 1000w. I’m using 3x 500w 24v 120ac psus which I once saw go up to 2200w but now I see it is overkill. Used only at home now as it’s too heavy to carry.
