Re: Fast Electric Cargo Bike for my Bay Area Commute

Note in regards to hub motors if using a geared rear hub motor then only a battery pack up to 52 volts. If you want to use higher voltages , which is better for higher speeds then a Direct Drive rear hub motor only. I am now running 14s ( 52volt ) for slower speeds and up hills , then 16s for more s...

Re: Fast Electric Cargo Bike for my Bay Area Commute

A few issues here. First you are in luck faster speeds are somewhat better with a long wheelbase bike like the Yuba. The hard part is you want to go both fast and far. this does not work on e-vehicles unless they are aero and have very large battery packs. For faster speeds on up right bikes you wil...

A flat run and a hill run, let us know the slope % and for how long. Not starting out in the highest gear, but a comparison with a couple of different gearing would be good as well.

I have about 5 rides now on the Cyclone 3k motor and it is time to get some Lipo's that are big enough to use the power of this motor, and that will give more speed. I can go up some pretty steep hills using a 34 rear cog , pulling only up to 32 amps on a 14s pack mostly around 20 amps, so I do not ...

It is very easy to have a 750 watt operating system, no mater how much the motor is rated for, if motor says a higher voltage then with a Cycle Analyst you can adjust the max amount of amps for the size voltage battery pack you have. Or program the controller if it is a Infineon or Infineon Clone , ...
