Re: Lacing Pattern for Q128 Hub Motor on 700c?

Andy my bike had a 40t Chainring and 11T was my smallest on the cassette and I would run out of resistance pretty quickly. I changed my chainring to a 46T and its much better now. If you have a 36T you may as well buy as large a chainring that your frame will accommodate. Marc Would you have gone l...

Re: Lacing Pattern for Q128 Hub Motor on 700c?

Thanks Dave and Marc, I've ordered 14 gauge spokes, hopefully the right length for 1 cross lacing. My bike is already converted to 1x9 (11-32), I suspect it'll need a bigger chain wheel as it's only a 36, but I'll try it first. There isn't much space for the PAS ring, so I'll probably mount it on t...

Re: Considering hub motor build for wife... Few questions

No, you can't use a single wall rim w/ a hub motor, even a sm. one like the Cute. Thanks motomech, I will look to see about buying a different rear rim. I asked the company to sell me a Double wall in red but they wont. Seems all replacement rims will be in silver and I may as well just use the sam...

Re: Considering hub motor build for wife... Few questions

I think you are starting to overthink this. The Q100's middle names are "worry free". I will be using the 18amp integrated controller in the Shark case BMS sells. As for controller limiting I do that in the Top speed cutoff value on the LCD? That's a sine wave controller so it limits performance by...

Re: Considering hub motor build for wife... Few questions

Hey Motomech. Thanks for the reply. As usual a few more questions.. Like 201 vs 260, I don't see much reason to go 36V pack over 48V pack. If you have the possibility to make a 48V pack multi-usage, I would say go w/ it and limit her bike w/ the controller. So for her setup your suggestion is I go 4...

Hello All, I have been a bit preoccupied with work to get this build going. I spent the weekend test riding bikes for my wife. She is 6'1" and only 3" shorter than me so I figured I am close enough. Downside is most women specific bikes end at 5'10" but many are fine for a bit taller. I tried just a...

What did you do in the end? How did it turn out? Would you do the same again? I have a cannondale Bad Boy with 700c rims and 9 speed cassette, looking to fit the same rim and motor as you. I'm thinking that it would suit 2 cross, but need to decide on suitable 13g(?) black spokes. cheers, Andy I ca...

Re: BMS Rear Rack Battery Anyone tried it?

Mine weighed 10lbs and putting that weight up above the rear wheel did not do the handling any favors. It made less of a difference on a touring style bike that was designed to carry a load, less friendly to more racy frames. I've moved the battery to the main triangle, and loosing some weight (Kee...

Re: Considering hub motor build for wife... Few questions

I built an frt. powered Q100 on 36 V when I lived in a beach town in Mex. I called it my "boardwalk bike" and I wanted it to be about as low-powered as practical because of the people milling around. It would do about 16 mph and below that speed felt like a normal Q100 build(but not a Q100H on 48V ...

Re: Considering hub motor build for wife... Few questions

Im now pretty sure I am going with a Q100h on the front with the battery on the rear rack. Motor and battery will be 36V so this will be a low power setup and maybe will help with the battery weight on the rear being 36V and less cells. My question that nobody has answered is does a front driven set...

Re: BMS Rear Rack Battery Anyone tried it?

I have the 48V15Ah Li-Ion battery with rack on the back of my Schwinn cruiser. The battery itself is almost 15 lbs and I think more than half of the weight is mounted behind the rear wheel centerline, and it definitely affects handling. There is far more weight on the back wheel with me, the hub mo...

Re: Considering hub motor build for wife... Few questions

Wives vary. Mine love to bike ride, but NEVER more than about 5-8 mph. So for her, a 500w bike is scary fast. You have to be the judge of what will suit your wife. Easy to give her more speed and power later, but impossible to get her ass back on the bike if your first try is scary to her. Yes I wa...

Re: Considering hub motor build for wife... Few questions

Yes, all the versions of the Q100 now come w/ an internal speed sensor(white wire). OK great to hear. So I guess the waterproof wiring harness I used on the Q128 should work on the Q100. Suppose my only remaining question is if anyone has purchased the rear rack integrated battery setup. On my bike...

Re: Need a bigger chain ring need advice..

The outer diameter of a round chainring in inches is very close to the number of teeth divided by 2π, plus a variable amount that's close to 0.3" and is a function of tooth shape. Use 0.4" as this value and your chainring will be no bigger than that. How big a chainring will fit is not just a matte...

Thanks everyone for the advice. Since I worked really hard to get the PAS ring to work on my current ISIS spline cranks I'd prefer to see if I can just upgrade my ring. However if i do have clearance issues its nice to know its an option. I emailed the bike MFG to see if they had data on the max siz...

I only have it as a PAS setup. Anyhow the bike has a SRAM 1x11 setup and my front Chainring is 40T and at PAS ...
