Great to hear your new ride is ticking all the boxes
sounds great would love to see some video from your rides as well.
Hi Mark glad to hear your bike is still running ok and you also got the composite gears which will help, some motors were tougher than others and my BMX was always a lot happier at 72V than some of the other hubs
anyways maybe the newer motors have improved (there is room for improvement) the newer digital xlyte controllers wont work on the BMC motors though.
Yes I am beginning to think that I missed a meeting with regard to the friction drive thing? i agree that the RC motors direct driven can be amazing however I think friction is a total non starter, I think they have their place on a very small folding bike where fitting a motor or any other drive is impossible (in fact this is the exact type of bike Kepler tests his on) but I dont understand folks on here that already have perfectly good e-bikes that are getting in to it? Kepler himself rides a Bomber with an X5 hubbie on it.
The newer versions of the BMC may be a lot tougher than the old ones, I will keep mine running on 50V for ultimate reliability and 30mph is plenty quick enough for me, if people want to really advance this hobby how about making a hub motor with an internal 3 speed gear that would be real progress, leave the friction drive systems to the past where they belong.
