Re: Hall/Phase wiring tester????

Thanks for the replies guys. Pretty sure I either blew a hall sensor or a mosfet while trying the different combos. I'll buy one of the testers and move forward more carefully. I guess I got in too much of a hurry trying to get it going. The idea of 7kW to the back wheel got me a little excited....

I tried that and got nothing. Now it won't do anything and I'm afraid I fried a hall sensor or a mosfet.

Hall/Phase wiring tester????

I'm working on hooking up a new Infineon clone 18 FET controller to a CL HS3580 motor. I am not having ANY luck trying the different wire combinations. All I get is juddering, reverse or nothing. Please tell me there is a tester tool designed specifically for figuring this out. Starting to get reall...

Dyno Moto 7 CL find

I've been looking for that just right next bike for quite a while now. You all know the drill, saved searches on the CL app, checking the LBS selection, etc. The other day I'm browsing CL and see a post with 2 pics of some old dirty cruiser. The guy wants $75 for what he described as a "Mountian Bik...

Re: My econo-e-bike

You should absolutely go for more battery, it is so fun! Rolling on the throttle with 72V+ is a total rush. Hot off the charger at 83V, my bike is more like a electric dirt bike, spins the back tire on gravel and goes blowing up hills like they're not even there. The only side effect of more battery...

Good Morning EL34. Your proposed bike, motor and battery sound like a very nice combo. You would end up with a fantastic bike that would go damn near anywhere.

Advice on Minn Kota 48V system

Good Morning All, My father in law has a 48V Minn Kota electric outboard attached to an older beautiful 14' Montgomery Ward aluminum hull boat. He currently powers it with 4 12V lead acid packs. His question is; could he use the on-board 48V charger to charge a lithium pack of similar voltage? Thank...

Hey Jangles, I think your donor bike looks great. Very classic look. I agree with Apl, add your mid-drive then upgrade things as necessary. Have fun.

This is a while after I got the bike - on this pic it already has the wheels relaced with other hubs and brakes to prepare it for the motor installation. It also has an air suspension fork (mocked up to look like a double crown fork). Very cool looking bike Toro, it's got a real Steve McQueen Great...

Re: E-bike for commuting: Front hub motor or TSDZ2?

Greetings from California Aero. I have 2 ebikes, a very illegal 3500W direct drive rear hub commuter (I live in a very rural area), and a 750W front hub utility trike I use at work. It sounds like a Tsdz2 installed discretely would be a very good fit for you exactly for the reasons you suggested. Ma...

Chalo, thanks for the front brake recommendation. I think I'll try that.
The hub motor kit was delivered yesterday.

It's a very basic kit and everything looks good. Should be fun to put together.

Re: Worksman utility trike build

Yesterday I used the trike at work to haul a HUGE amount of leaves. It is definitely time to electrify this thing. To that end I placed an eBay order last night for this.

I'll power it with 10S of carefully monitored Multistars. Looking forward to the install.

Re: Worksman utility trike build

I'll take some pictures today of the drivetrain for those curious. While looking for a proper useful cargo bed I found this on Harbor Freight. If it were just a couple inches narrower it would be perfect. I only have about 21.5 inches between the wheels.

Re: Groundbreaking Innovation On The E-bike!!

I would pay to not have that on my bike. One of your first problems is the wearing of earbuds while riding. Anything that interferes with situational awareness (hearing) is a major safety problem. The rest of it seems unnecessarily complicated. My two cents.

Re: Help with utility trike build

Brilliant idea, but if not too controversial for here, you might try it without a motor first. When I had 68 condos to maintain, we used two Schwinn trikes without motor. Not much hill on the property, and 2-3 mph was plenty of speed anyway. motor just was not needed, and nobody living there wanted...

Re: Help with utility trike build

I've found many different 48V 20" front wheel kits available on both eBay and Alie Express. Leaning towards a DD hub motor since this will be operating mostly on flat ground with only minor hills occasionally. DD will be simpler and keep moving parts to a minimum. A 12S 20aH Multistar pack will prov...
