Re: Looking for a trustworthy front hub motor

There's a few options listed in this search https://www.google.com/search?q=650A+32+hole+rims+-650B+-650C though I don't know if they have them in stock or not. Or perhaps they all have the wrong size listed and they're not really 650A, if they're ones you've already found and tried. Or I might be c...

Re: Need buttons for Bafang C965 Display

Does this button unit just plug into the rest of the system, using one of those "higo" waterproof connectors? If so, try unplugging and replugging it, pushing it *firmly* and completely together (with any arrows lined up). Some of them are a little difficult to get snugly plugged in, and m...

Re: Building 4wd

If you've already setup two with common controls, etc., then four should be the same, unless there is some specific restriction with the hardware you are using that prevents that. If you want the system to have one set independent from the other for any reason, or in any way, then you'd need to sepa...

Re: Stealth bomber clone help

It moves because the dropouts are damaged or not made correctly and are not flush flat with the axle flats. The nuts don't hold the axle in place from rotation. They just keep it on the bike. The flats of the axles, along with the flats of the dropouts, keep the axle from rotating. The torque arm or...

Re: Stealth bomber clone help

Yeah, your dropouts are already damaged and spread out (or they aren't made right in the first place), which is why your axle is sitting in there at an angle. It should sit flat in there with the flat faces of the axle against the flat faces of the dropouts, and not be able to rock back and forth *a...

Re: Sabvoton 72150 help

The BMS is 50amp and I disconnected the discharge as it was cutting out battery at 72v and wouldn't come back on until I charged it. Now it has a little more torque and no issues but BMS is still connected for charging. The battery is 20s/12p and from what I can see the Samsung 35E cells are 5 amp ...

Re: Ebike riding with a speaker and lots and lots of lights?

Have you looked at those lights that project a bike lane? Most of them are tail lights but you could probably disable the tail light function and just use the bike lane function and mount it on a handlebar. That might work for letting people know you're coming up behind them at night and how you're...

I've got a number of old regular bike frames and wheels and assorted other stuff available for the next few days only (after that it has to go away).

Re: Sabvoton 72150 help

What's the max continuous current limit on the battery's BMS? That is your limiting factor for running the bike.

You can set a peak current as high as the peak battery limit, but you don't want to use that for more than a few seconds at a time.

Re: Cycle Analyst Throttle Settings

Most likely you're getting LVC cutout on the controller from too much voltage sag on the batteries under load. That link says it's LVC is 40 ± 0.5 V. It could also be the CA doing it per it's own LVC (which you can change in the settings)--typically the CA setting and controller setting should be th...

Re: Looking for ESC that can default to a specific profile.

Ability to have lights and brake lights are fairly important, as I ride nights quite a bit, but I can allways use an external module and have no brake lights.

Re: Too thick cable

For an axle different from the original, you'd have to design and make it (or have it designed and made for you by a machinist). If you do make one of these, I recommend putting the wire exit inboard of teh dropout if it is not already, to protect it more against damage than if it just sticks out of...
