Re: Primer on Wiring Lights into an Ebike System?

Hey there, I have built up two electric bikes (Bafang mid-drive and direct drive hub motor with PAS through CA). I am okay at working through the technical jargon but I am no expert! I can usually find what I want around the internet. But I cannot find out how to wire lights into my Bafang BBS02 48...

So sorry! Haven't gotten around to selling these and missed messages. I do not ship and sell CA3 displays.
Controllers are still available.

Re: Bafang BBSxx - fault finding and fixes

It has a 46 tooth chain ring on it and a 32 rear. May need to go up to a 42 or bigger rear to have avoided the controller overheat. My 110 pound grand son was on it pedaling some 50 -55 rpms next to me when it went dead. Just on low pas level settings, maybe 40% power. Center leg again. We were abo...

Re: Bafang BBSxx - fault finding and fixes

Good old Bafang doesn't share any serial numbers tied to changes.
I'm curious, how fast were you riding and climbing and what was your gear ratio?

Controllers are getting really hard to find for "A" version BBS02. Often expensive enough to justify a bare motor BBS02B.

The bracket is at a perfect height on many frames. But trying to manufacture and design for additional frame geometry just isn't in the cards.

I bought my kit from EM3ev because I liked their batteries and I wanted a complete kit from one vendor for my first build. I ordered my kit on 4/15/2020 and received the last item (the battery by ground) on 5/31/2020.

Doug sells only EM3ev batteries.

Re: BBSHD 100mm or 120mm kit for a 100mm bb?

If you check out the entire cost with shipping et al, Doug California eBike is competitive. He answers the phone and email promptly.

Every day he has calls for support from buyers that purchased elsewhere. And there is no support or support takes 3 days.

Why not a battery from EM3ev? Great builds.

Re: The Cycle Satiator, universal charger for the enthusiasts

I have an EM3ev 36V 17Ah battery purchased last year. It was stored in a 50F basement for the winter. Satiator won't recognize it and insists I should plug in a battery. Multimeter reads 29V, an 8V drop since stored. Force charge doesn't work, I get the same message.

Has anybody bought a battery from Grin Tech? I know they are not the subject of this thread but they are what I would consider one of the major three suppliers at least for North America :D .

Re: EM3ev vs Luna Batteries and Kits

And you flip a coin to see if there will be a warranty coverage. EM3ev 1 year. Luna? If you manage to embarrass them into support.
