MXUS XF15 spoke length specs

Hi guys. I have attached a pdf file with a diagram of the MXUS XF15 rear hub motor. This is my first wheel build and I don't know what the measurements in the diagram show. I think the measurements may show the information I need to input into bikes.ca online spoke calculator, but they are not label...

So easy to just buy a 36 hole rim. Set aside your old wheel, in case you ever sell the bike. no need to use that original rim.
Thanks dogman dan. I will follow your advice.

Re: number of spokes in motor and wheel

You need a 36 hole rim for the motor. Or buy one laced into one. Some folding bikes have very skinny frames.. Most motors come in 135 mm wide axle, for the standard bike frame. Measure your frame before you buy a 135 mm wide motor. Thanks for the information dogmas-dan. I will buy a rim with the 36...

High guys. I am starting an ebike conversion on a 20 inch wheel Tern A7 Link folding bike. This is my first DIY ebike conversion, because as has been said, "necessity is the mother of invention". In other words, I don't have a whole lot of money! I am going to start with the wheel build and hope you...

reputable vendor

Has anyone ever bought from Leaf Bike? Below is a link to the ebike kit I am interested in buying. The price and shipping charge seem reasonable when compared to other vendors, but I have no idea if they have a good customer service.

The paypal buyer protection might help you in case of issues.

They look legitimate enough to me (Like bmsbattery which are not taking responsibility in warranty cases :wink: )

i’d only place a smaller order to try them out if you don’t get recommendations for them.
Thanks for the info,

I need enough power to help me pedal my 180lbs up any incline or hill. Most of the time I will not be using any motor assi...
