Re: A2B Metro - [rear rack, auxiliary, secondary, battery]

Great.....I asked as I've got a '10 A2B Velociti that is in need of a battery rebuilt & I desired more top-end speed over the 20mph limit. Is it possible to cut a "wire" for the temp shut-off? So, what level speeds are you getting with a 14s pack?

Re: A2B Metro - [rear rack, auxiliary, secondary, battery]

Hey e-Glider.....the lithium batteries you linked to are either 7sx2 =14s (51.8v) or 6sx2=12s (44.4v)! Neither of these packs will work with the stock A2B 36v controller, right?

Yes SM, it's a 7 phase internal sine wave controlled hub.....a shame it was only governed to a 46.2 volts max.

Hey Brian....BTW, I too have 8 of the Tidalforce ebikes. :-) Interesting how you put 2 HK lipo batteries in the front hub. Personally I removed the front battery hub, installed a 26" shimano dyno hub disc wheel to power a Planet Bike LED light (w/blinky). Then installed an Avid BB7 caliper for upgra...

Re: Ghost ASX 5100 with HS4080 20s LIPO - 8ah

Nice projects....how did the middrive compare to the hub in feel and in their riding. Which did you prefer?

I'm looking into using the Crystalyte 4080 rear hubs on a couple of X-Tidalforce ebike Montague folding frames.

Thanks.

Re: Need Suggestions for Modifying EBike SX to Higher MPH

Seraffa...first off you didn't mention your budget. Based on your goals, plan on spending around $1,200 +, and it's not even realistic with this short wheelbase hardtail light frame to go 50mph. Ok, for 30mph. Here is an upgrade that may be of interest with your same model ebike: https://www.youtube...

Miro...Thanks. Again, it's a shame the E+ front NiMH hub isn't a simple jumper fix like the original TF. I haven't tried pulling the power off the battery board, to try a reboot, yet. I'll then decide the next course of action if that doesn't work. The plan when I purchased this like new E+ was to g...

It will power up for about 2 sec then shut offer. I contacted Rick, and we checked the charger and voltage of the front hub. Both are ok with ...

Re: I picked up a 24v Lee Iacocca EVG Ebike

I'm using two Hobbyking Lithium poly 18.5v/37v (42.5v-$180 shipped) batteries in all of my EVG ebikes. This 42.5v 5lb pack gives me around a 14.5 mile range in the 36v ebikes. It of course can be doubled for a 16ah battery pack that can easily fit in the side compartment. My "cardio" ride is 12 mile...

Re: I picked up a 24v Lee Iacocca EVG Ebike

Cor....with the stock 36v crankset, I'm only able to go with a 46t max front gear. Otherwise it will hit the frame. Even when I went with a 46t front & a 32-11 rear, I didn't need to add any chain links to the stock chain on the LE. You may have the "offset" to go higher with your stock 24v crankset...
