Re: 2 Speed Xiongda hubmotor

I just installed Xiongda 2 speed on my son's trike. Xiongda on Gekko 3.JPG I ordered 48V version with all possible options (I had 48V battery and ordered second). I decided on 135mm rear drive with 6 speed freewheel. So far, I'm happy with everything and my son is ecstatic. He can ride it a little o...

Re: Dave's 80:1 RC mid drive kit build log

I am curious about the power draw of the Cyclone and Bafang kits, if anybody has one with a CA, please share the full-speed power draw when the chain isn't connected to the rear. I think 200W loss at 12,000RPM is fine. -dave I don't have Cyclone or Bafang kit and I don't know if that will help but ...

Yes, BT is available on all controllers from 3F to 24F. 30A is the max rating for 6F. Please PM for details. Is 6 FETs controller with Bluetooth available? I don't see it on your website.

For me normally I use PAS1 Eco Mode and I am capable reaching 25 miles. If you want more speed, than you are in the wrong forum. You should get a Motorcycle.
You cannot be serious. This is perfect forum to be on to get more than 25 mph out of an e-bike and I will stick around. :evil:

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Probably you can take a look at this Review. Performance should be the same since it had the Banfang Ultra 1000watts https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Rx31XFvACI Thanks for the link! So I watched it and he states top speed of roughly 40mph with pedal assist and 20-25mph with throttle only. Maybe I m...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

@ Frey how much for an AM 1000 with rohloff hub ? If you could build one I'd buy it . Please be realistic. Chinese are not going to buy $1200 rearhub to put on a bike for you. Get the bike, get the Speedhub, lace it and put it all together. I did it and had tons of fun. BTW: I bought my Rohloff Spe...

Re: Direct VESC V4.12

For us space is always an issue since we integrate everything into a cavity only 20mm deep and our electronics need to fit into a cavity around 50mm wide so v4.12 is a good fit. Once v6 goes public we will likely rework the pcb files and make a more compact version to suit our needs but it will be ...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

I have Rohloff Speedhub, 14 Speeds on my e-bike and I can tell you that it is worth every penny I paid for it.
You can change gears from 1st to 14th in a second. After a couple of months of riding it became very smooth.

Unfortunately, the cheap BMS was not working as it should, so I ordered a new one, and I will plug it in once it comes. I still need to install the meter switch and tot...

I'm going to install a 16A BMS just for charging and two battery testers for monitoring battery voltage. This way I will be able to keep track of battery group health ...

I took the bike on a single track around Lake Miramar. I was very happy with everything, but had one little problem. Under heavy load, I was getting a hick-up. It was hard to tell what was going on, but once I put the bike on the hydraulic trainer and applied the rear brake, I realized that under he...

Re: LightningRods mid drive kit

At first $80 seems stupid for a freewheel. The more you work with the W-I freewheel the better a value it becomes. Chainwheel mid drives put a huge strain on that chainwheel freewheel. W-I freewheels are the best because they are precision machined, but they are designed with single row bearings. T...
