Re: New Jersey ( USA ) pending legislation

Also it is odd that they allow 49cc ICE bikes, which include China Girls, to go 25mph but eBikes only 20mph. As I understand it, 49cc ICE bikes (and 1.5 HP eBikes) with pedals and: A white front headlamp and red rear taillight capable of being seen under normal conditions from at least 500 feet. Th...

Re: New Jersey ( USA ) pending legislation

News reports are that Governor Murphy signed the new legislation. https://www.insidernj.com/press-release/governor-murphy-signs-legislation-permitting-operation-low-speed-e-bikes-motorized-scooters/ Yay! Time to break the 2007 eZee Forza out of mothballs. I've been waiting for about 7 years for thi...

ZEV B-750

60V, 750W, 1.44 kwh. "INTRODUCTORY PRICING MSRP $1925 PRODUCT LAUNCH DATE MID OCTOBER" http://www.zelectricvehicle.com/25.html No picture yet... looks interesting. Especially if they have a real VIN on it so it can be registered as a moped in states like PA and NJ, that (or, the lack of it) was/is a...

Re: Ezee battery charged, but no output

Check the terminal bolts on the bottom, I have a Forza and although they were sealed with some silcone goo, there was enough corrosion cause problems. Also check the battery box, there is one external fuse, sealing on that is imperfect, contacts may need contact cleaner as well. There is an internal...

Re: Broken flange on hub motor, welding worth it?

Just thought I'd update this with my results-- Had a friend MIG weld the flange piece back on and had the LBS true the wheel up - I've put about 20 miles on it, seems OK although the spokes seemed a bit loose after the ride. Noticed the wheel was a little crooked in the fork, doesn't seem to want to...

Re: How many of us wear glasses while riding?

Always wore glasses but hated the air hitting my eyes. Got worse when it rained. When it got colder I tried safety goggles, that worked but had some problems with fogging. Then I got a pair of prescription sunglasses with Liberty Sport frames similar to these http://www.libertysport.com/products_det...

Re: Broken flange on hub motor, welding worth it?

Get a new identical motor, and then you'll have a spare stator with wiring and halls ready to go, so if you have an issue you can be up and running good as new with a simple swap in 15 minutes. Only one who sold the bare motor was Justin but it looks like he's out of them. Nycewheels has the whole ...

Re: Broken flange on hub motor, welding worth it?

look closely, if there are more cracks in the aluminum next to the part the fractured, you cannot get the strength needed to drill it out next to that spoke hole, but if it was clean, then try drilling at least 1/4", 6mm, away from the edge of the crack, for another spoke, chamfer the hole like the...

Re: Broken flange on hub motor, welding worth it?

If you are only running 350 watts, or even up to 750 watts, I would get the Cute motor. It's smaller AND cuter! :lol: Never saw those before, interesting. I'd probably go for it if I lived in the city-- Spec sheet that I could find (for the cute 250w version) indicated a maximum torque of about 15 ...

What is it?

Dan
Spec sheet says 186 mm diameter on the motor, I guess that's on the small side compared to what most people here use?

Re: Broken flange on hub motor, welding worth it?

Two words: Stoke Monkey!! Hadn't considered that option! But I hear you, I had looked at bottom bracket motor designs before I bought the bike, and wish I could drop the motor into a lower gear every time I hit this particular hill I do about 8 MPH, pedalling hard... even with the planetary gears, ...

If it's one we use commonly, you could get a replacement outer case..
It's an eZee 350W model, probably circa 2009 build.

Here's hoping!

Re: Broken flange on hub motor, welding worth it?

unless you were able to buy a new outer ring and put your insides into it.
I asked the place I bought the bike from if I could get the shell, they said they only sell the whole wheel+motor together, so I guess I'll try Items Wanted here next. Thanks all!!

Well, remember that song from Ace of Base, "The Sign" ?

Broken flange on hub motor, welding worth it?

Minor ebike accident last week left me pretty much OK, but a 1" piece of flange was busted off my hub motor. broken_flange.jpg Before I go on Items Wanted for a replacement motor shell I thought I'd ask here if it's worth trying to repair instead. I imagine it would require awesome weldling skills a...
