Re: Tentative build. Surly Krampus BBSHD

I can vouch for EM3EV being a quality company that stands behind their products.
Not sure why they havent responded.
I would try again if needed, they are worth the wait.

Run it til it blows up. Assess what happened, fix and repeat.

Re: Best Starter Frame for Bafand BBSHD

I am building my first ebike and am being overwhelmed by the number of choices. I prefer no full suspension because I want racks and fenders. My budget is $1,000-$1,500 (bike alone) and if warranted up to around 2K for the bike. I have been scouring Bikes Direct and Bike Island for a while now. It'...

Re: Eggrider V2 Display

Not sure how I missed this.
I have 1 ER I have been using for about a year.
I like it alot.
The ability to modify profiles and parameters via the phone is excellent.
Waiting on my second 1 now.
I have 1 on a BBSHD Ludicrous and another on an 02.

Re: EM3ev vs Luna Batteries and Kits

I have purchased BBS02’s, HD’s and batteries from both vendors. I have had good experiences with both also. I have also had problems with a BMS on a EM3EV battery and a controller on a BBSHD from Luna. Neither were within the warranty period yet I received excellent technical support and replacement...

Re: Bacchetta Giro | BBSHD | 14s7p 35E | 500w PAS

I have one of those recumbents and have thought about putting either my 02 or HD on it.
It would be fun and efficient. A little throttle from a dead stop would help the initial wobble ;-)
Nice build.

Hailong battery in small frame???

I actually have it that way on a Specialized Enduro. It is low and out of the way. You will destroy the Bafang before you will hit the battery. I always thought a battery with a semi circular end that would fit flush against the Bafang would be attractive, low and out of harms way. You will have to ...

Re: Power tool batteries...interchangeability ?

Now retired, I'm entirely on the Ryobi tool line. I got tired of three brands of shit in the toolbox. But I made the switch while still using them professionally. I found it affordable to replace the more delicate tools annually, at black Friday, and thus accumulated charger and got more or less fr...

If I were to desire a better chainline for my application (A 2004ish Giant DH Team 100mm bb). How complicated would it be for me to move the motor driven chain to the outside ring of the bottom bracket sprockets?

Re: Shaft adapter, splined and threaded for freewheel and co

Look up "thread milling". It allows for some interesting possibilities.
Thread mills can start or stop a thread right up to a shoulder.

Re: New BBSHD, unusual markings, resistance when turning cra

That looks nice. I use a mule. Though a decent hydration pack, the waist belt is not enough for the additional weight of the battery.

Re: New BBSHD, unusual markings, resistance when turning cra

I have started to run a battery in my camelbak. Mostly for the stealth of it.
I definitely suggest a small backpack over the camelbak I am using. Just need some larger straps and support.

Re: First Electric Build: Half-Fat 29r Surly E-ECR w/ Bafang

I see you have hydraulic brakes, I wonder how (whether?) you trigger the motor cut-out with your brakes? I.e. did you mount a reed switch to them, or anything? I'm coming up on that decision I think. K The slightest back pedaling disengages the motor enough for a shift or braking. I do run a shift ...

Re: New BBSHD, unusual markings, resistance when turning cra

I got my HD pretty early in production. I also have an 02. Neither really have much mileage. The 02 has a few hundred and the HD less than 50 or so. I did remove the chain and power from the HD, while rotating by hand I felt no uneveness or binding. It was smooth but did have the small resistance in...

When the part was loose. Were you able to hit the estop before ruining the part? It should be easy enough to recover. Reclamp it, index from a known location and rerun the file.

Re: Quick drive by with my Nukeproof Tangent

That sounds so promising. I would like a little pedal involvement just for the health of it. Living in the Houston area, climbs arent an issue. I have a 14s5p 14.ah 30q on the way. Was going to use it with a BBS HD, I might have other ideas now ;-)

Where do you carry a 24ah pack?

Re: Quick drive by with my Nukeproof Tangent

That is sufficient for me. I am in! I want PAS of some kind and my understanding is this model has it, though not torque based. It looks like it would work ;-) Any idea of range being a hooligan as you were?
