OK, finally the holidays have arrived. We had a great Christmas dinner, and most people have gone to bed now, so I have time to write something here. In the meantime, I have had several days of experience commuting with the supercombo.. It is really great! My normal commute is a relatively flat (200...

Hi John,

It's probably easier if you post all the specific characteristics of your battery, and CA and Phaserunner setting s,so other people can chime in as well.

Review: All-Axle Grin Hub motor meets Haibike FS RS 27.5

OK, here is the breakdown. Warning: long post! Assembly I laced the Grin Hub into my 27.5 rim. After the initial mistake mentioned earlier, lacing was relatively easy, using 2.0mm black spokes with black nipples. Then I put a nice big DH tube and a Nobby Nick tire on it. In addition, I put a 203mm F...

Re: All-Axle Grin Hub motor meets Haibike FS RS 27.5

Hey you did the same as me then. Guess what I am soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo glad I did because after mounting I realised that caliper bits clearance would have meant probably redoing it to outside in. Hmm, for me the brake caliper has just enough space. The heads sit flush...... I am the black s...

Re: All-Axle Grin Hub motor meets Haibike FS RS 27.5

You can't believe everything you read but that bevel was pointed out to me years ago by the person that taught me how to build wheels so that is the way I did it. Yes I had to pressure the spokes some to get them to angle towards the rim but I have had to do that on every wheel I have built. Here i...

Re: All-Axle Grin Hub motor meets Haibike FS RS 27.5

I laced my wheel by feeding the spokes from the outside in. Therefore, all the elbows of the spokes are on the inside.

OK, I got everything laced in, assembled on my bike, and first test ride will start tomorrow. I have completely disabled regen, because I find that I cannot modulate the regen as I would like to on my front wheel. Too much fear of going over the bars....

Re: All-Axle Grin Hub motor meets Haibike FS RS 27.5

I have had one for about a month but work has also gotten in the way and waiting for a rim to arrive that was the right size. The first one was a 650b and I needed a 700c but it was a gimme so not able to complain. I am getting my spokes together tomorrow hopefully though now that I have them calce...

Re: All-Axle Grin Hub motor meets Haibike FS RS 27.5

Yes, the spoke threader is expensive, but it is still worth it for me. I have laced about 30 wheels now (with and without motor).

I got this Hozan one from Jenson.

Spoke calculation mistake

OK, so I made a mistake. In my previous post, you can see how I configured the Online Spoke Calculator. I did it wrongly, hence the spokes that I ordered are too short. I only found out while trying to lace the wheel.... This is how I should have done it: https://endless-sphere.com/forums/download/f...

Hi there, Yes, this is exactly what I am doing (front wheel hub + midmotor driving rear wheel through the normal gears). However, the front hub is a DD and not a geared motor. You are around Winterthur, right? When you are in the neighbourhood of Basel, send me a message, and I can show you. build t...

Re: 20mm thru axle grin tech and green motion geared motor 1

Hi all, Just wanted to let you know I have one of Justin's Grin Hub Motors on my bench in a test fork, connected to a PhaseRunner, CAv3, and a 50V battery. Next step is building it into my Fox 34 front fork on my Haibike. With my FS Haibike with midmotor (Front Grin Hub is NOT yet built in), I do si...

OK, so this is absolutely rediculous! I read again the PhaseRunner tread. Then it dawned on me to check the Grin site again. I downloaded the new PhaseRunner Software suite, installed it, and 5 minutes later I had a perfectly spinning Grin Hub Motor!! Literally 5 minutes!!! What did I do? First, I s...

Re: All-Axle Grin Hub motor meets Haibike FS RS 27.5

Hi John,

Yep, that is correct. I had the Phaserunner lying around already.

I now have issues with my Win10 laptop not recognizing the USB serial adapter..... meaning that I cannot get BacDoor running to configure the Phaserunner.
