Re: E-Bike stopped giving full power.

The motor speed depends on what gear you're in. It can't generate a road speed calculation. There should be a magnet on a spoke, and a sensor that counts wheel revolutions, which then calculates road speed using the wheel diameter that you set in the display. Without that magnet and sensor my bike (...

Wind turbine would work if you always had a tailwind! Or stopped/camped.

Is there a weight design?
40km/h? 60km/h?

Re: On Key?

Hey guys, So I had a quick search around and I'm not sure that anyone has done this, but has anyone managed to create an on switch for your ebike in the form of a key? Similar to a motorbike? If so, do you sell the kits? I have a soldering iron and I'm vaguely savvy if that helps. Cheers. Security ...

Adding rohloff to the title of this thread is indeed an envious setup, and what I'm aiming for.

Re: Can I add a single speed freewheel on my gearless hub motor?

I'd go with a two speed freewheel. Either white industries, or a Surly dingle. Lose the derailleur's, cables and shifters. Just need a chain tensioner (or use the rear derailleur if price is a concern ) You now have a 2-speed 'manual' and some wiggle room in your gearing. Or if you keep both front c...

I like the dog tag idea. Might be better if you had blanks without the hole. I was thinking of drilling another hole on the other end and make it look like it's riveted on there, like a compliance plate, but the rivet heads would be sugru-ed on only for aesthetics. Like this.

Re: Street-Legal BBSHD (in '250w' australia)

I have a fixed gear bike.
Slowing down by using reverse force on the pedals works fine, but relying on that to come to an abrupt stop will almost certainly throw you off the bike, and should definately not be considered a 'brake'.

I think all you're missing is the plug n play cable that grin has just listed on their site recently. So far I've only seen it as an add-on option when buying the phaserunner. If that's still true, I'd just email grin and ask if you can buy just the cable. If not; may I return this one for the corre...
