Re: Want suggestions for cargobike with large mid-mount motor

Why is johnct61 not answering the questions we posted to him earlier in this thread yet complaining about not being on topic? It's been almost 4 weeks and he won't even answer post #2 or my question in post #9. He won't answer any questions, yet he has been in these forums the whole time posting in ...

Re: Want suggestions for cargobike with large mid-mount motor

Hey john61ct, If you care so much about this thread (instead of pretending to) why don't you start by answering the questions in post #2: What is the cargo that you need to transport up the hill in size and weight? How steep is the hill? How are you transporting it now? Does it have to be based on a...

Re: Want suggestions for cargobike with large mid-mount motor

https://endless-sphere.com/forums/download/file.php?id=312239 We might also remember that Chalo is rather tall and big. So adjust the distribution of his weight to this bicycle. Someone who was 5' 5" and 125 lbs might have troubles with the height of this bike. This is an example of a bike tha...

Re: Want suggestions for cargobike with large mid-mount motor

My point is you don't need to understand these things to buy them, you don't need much knowledge to assemble them, and you don't need anything at all to have an opinion. But you have to understand what you're doing at least relatively well if you are to build a unique thing from scratch and get it ...

Re: Which Hub motor and controller for a 96v build?

As I understand it's a direct drive motor and it does not have planetary gears. So no Grease The QS212 motor is direct drive motor, but the motor in the Jump bike front hub is a Bafang geared hub motor (SWX02 10T) with 5:1 internal reduction. The SWX02 motor core is reported to be as quiet as a Q10...

Re: Biggest changes in DIY ebikes over the past 5 years?

e-bikes in the low price range aren't for me, but it's interesting that the ratings for them on Amazon are consistently high (4+) exhibiting their appeal to their audience. Also, many years ago when my children were young, BSO's were the only bikes available (that I could find since I couldn't affo...

Re: Which Hub motor and controller for a 96v build?

Okay, show of hands for everybody who's lunched the gears in a Jump bike hub while running at 22 amps or less. Anybody? Some people have already had to replace their jump bike motors with new bafang motor cores because the jump bike motors make too much noise. Example below: https://endless-sphere....

Re: Which Hub motor and controller for a 96v build?

No reason to open as ez to tear wire jacket. So don't open unless needed. Plus the bearing are very hard to get grease into and maybe sealed to some extent. We are talking about the nylon planet gears + metal sun and ring gears, not the bearings. My prediction is (for the average Jump bike motor) m...

Maybe he would rather sell more cyclone motors and the labor to install them than suggest simple and easy preventative maintenance the pedicab ow...

Even the company you work for mentions this for their de-amped cyclone 4000 (running at a mere 1150 watts because you guys turn down the 72v controller down to only 20 amps). https://precisionpedicab.com/products/cyclone-gearbox-nylon-gears-22-teeth-25 These are a wear item.

Re: Which Hub motor and controller for a 96v build?

Seems about right, those jump motors are now $40 The reason they cost $40.....actually $40 plus shipping....is because they are going to need (on average) a lot of work. In fact, I have been reading how many of these jump wheels need truing. That means depending on how long they have been out of tr...

Lots of us have swapped wheel sizes and know things about it. You haven't, and you don't.
