Re: StefEbike for my wonderful disabled wife

Well, Neptronix was right, which shouldn't surprise me. I thought for sure any water in my hub motor would have drained/cooked off from my heater after that flooded trip I did last year. Nope. I finally opened the hub to look into the hall sensor errors I'm getting this year, and some water came out...

I'm impressed that you can place cells all the way down to the bottom bracket :thumb:

Re: Help building battery triangle 20s10p

Indeed. One option is using cell spacers like this , and here's what they looked like when I used them. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/4CN29GbjP3PzSToLuzYSR0QMdIGUv06Jt0iLZBoCyh6kWE-ZOLwkMr9d95EDKho8s0-VIcjeWtVteSnqPxLp6UEA5wnkEgIi5sBTZHMgVlRSHwlzNxkTslF03jyVZvcWgbqb1jJMj_sD8rLLGTF_7G9Qsf8_eYHwb9...

Re: Help building battery triangle 20s10p

(i want to add foam and it might get in the way) Also could you help me out and tell me what gauge wire i need to connect the left...

Re: Help building battery triangle 20s10p

This was actually my favorite part of designing my batteries. Looks like your frame is very close to 60 degrees between those tubes. Building an enclosure will take up some space, but won't change that 60 degrees. If you're using cell spacers like the ones I used , they at least state a distance of ...

Re: StefEbike for my wonderful disabled wife

So last year I was still searching for a better suspension fork that would fit on my recumbent bike. I had originally done most of my research on the HP-Velotechnik Streetmachine Gte bike, and that comes with a Spinner Grind2 (20?) fork that offers a heavy duty spring for loads over 100kg. I found t...

Re: Critique this performance velomobile idea

I like your parts list :) The phaserunner, cycle analyst and torque sensing bottom bracket are on my wish list. I haven't quite decided on which one though. You chose Sempu because it's supposed to be the most responsive?

Also I am guessing that the range estimation is optimistic, but we'll see!

Re: bluetooth BMS?

What are your cell group voltages? How old are the cells? How well is the pack assembled? Are you confident there isn't a problem with any cells? Another thing to check is the shunt resistor value. One quick way to confirm that the set value is in the ball park: you can plug in your charger, and ch...

Re: PWD's Rocky Mountain Element - refresh

Looks like fun :) Very similar to the box I built for my wife's bike, and I also used the Malectrics welder (with a car battery) and had to modify the derailleur to clear. How do you plan to attach the side panels? With only one screw in each corner of the triangle, mine don't seal tight at all in t...

Thanks qwerkus, that's the first time I'm hearing about the switch feature.

Re: bluetooth BMS?

So you installed a switch to have the BMS ignore the temp sensor inputs, or is the BMS acting as a switch output?

Perhaps. OTOH, you see businesses offering free wi-fi all over the place. The incentives don't always work out to the type of end that you describe. Given the low cost of providing an outlet, I don't see things becoming all that grim. But frankly, as I said I don't think that ebikes will be a big f...

No, just only using the BMS as "charge only".. And connect the main negative wire directly from battery to speed controller. I am aware, that I loose some safety. But thanks...
