Re: Wayne’s Dengfu Carbon Fibre FS 27.5” with Bafang M600 (throttle also)

Mike to answer your question on coasting after full speed and how easy to pedal assist to full speed here is what I tested today...... On dead flat aground pedalling fairly hard the bike getts up to 43 km no problem. Once the drive cuts out at this speed you can feel the bike slowing because the mot...

Re: Wayne’s Dengfu Carbon Fibre FS 27.5” with Bafang M600 (throttle also)

I will keep you updated Mike on your questions. One option (sounds a little crazy however) buy two complete drives with two batteries and go the dengfu route. Still cheaper than a specilized or the German stuff and you have a throttle to boot.

Re: Wayne’s Dengfu Carbon Fibre FS 27.5” with Bafang M600 (throttle also)

Hi Mike I am thinking back to when I first got the bike when I was on pavement with hills to ride down that would let me feel if it coasted after max speed and letting gravity take you even faster . I think it coasted just fine after the max speed was reached but its been a while. I am in Arizona ri...

Re: Wayne’s Dengfu Carbon Fibre FS 27.5” with Bafang M600 (throttle also)

Yes I agree with bigwheel, this bike looks kind of dorky complete with kick stand. Real mountain bikes dont have kick stands. Complete with that steep seat tube, the bike just looks like a wall mart special in every way.

Thanks for posting that Bigwheel.Looks like you are leaning towards the Samsung 14s pack, do you know for a fact we are OK to run a 14 s pack. Has bafang given you the thumbs up for running higher voltage than the 54.6v that the bafang packs give? Keep us all in the loop please on any info that you ...

Re: Wayne’s Dengfu Carbon Fibre FS 27.5” with Bafang M600 (throttle also)

Thanks for this Andy. You may be correct but who knows for sure. Dengfu stated it was going to be sourced from Bafang but now that I see the BAfang badge on your pack maybe you are on to something. It appears you also have a throttle on your bike based on battery can bus appearance. Can you tell us ...

Re: Geared Bafang hub slipping internally

Yes that was my first thought also, the keyway. I have sheared this on a mac and it can even work for a while under small loads depending on how its sheared and then it will finally fail totally.

HI Bigwheel and Wheelepete.....to try and summarize my thougths on this drive and bike and if I am satisfied at this point... 1. The bike handles well, and in my opinion has a worthy frame design with decent components (good enough for me) 2. I could not replace this with anything else store bought ...

Re: Wayne’s Dengfu Carbon Fibre FS 27.5” with Bafang M600 (throttle also)

HI Vividguy,one of the three pins are for suppling power to the throttle and I am not sure what else the other two are for.I think the M600 battery supplies around 4 or 5 volts to the throttle directly from the battery not the controller like other systems. When I was trouble shooting my battery iss...

Re: Wayne’s Dengfu Carbon Fibre FS 27.5” with Bafang M600 (throttle also)

HI Fijibrad I find the 14ah gives plenty of range. It pointless to say howmuch range as things depend so much on speed, weight of rider, hills or flats or how you choose to use the throttle. Even using the throttle with pedal assist will hurt your range a bit so too many things to sift through to gi...

Re: Wayne’s Dengfu Carbon Fibre FS 27.5” with Bafang M600 (throttle also)

OK good news, I soldered on a female 3 pin connector to match the new M600 connectors onto the old Luna twist throttle I had and it works way better than the thumb throttle. Easy to smooth it out even using the power level 5 so this is good news. At this point I see no need to alter any programing i...

Re: Wayne’s Dengfu Carbon Fibre FS 27.5” with Bafang M600 (throttle also)

HI Tom I dont have access to a accurate scale now as I am in Arizona. I calculated before I think that the bike will weigh in just a little under 50lbs with the 13s4p pack. I would be surprised if its more than 50lbs. Tom I would not say that the throttle is bad its just not as tunable as the HD1000...
