Re: FUTR frames, Adaptto Controllers, Eaton Chargers, batteries

Yeah I see what you mean, and I am partly agreeing. I know many where really happy with Adaptto, and also that many ES members bought several controllers to use with several builds because the loved em so much. Nov that speaks of the quality and features. And if you look at that and the price I agre...

Re: FUTR frames, Adaptto Controllers, Eaton Chargers, batteries

Thats kind of why I was so bummed when mobipus went OEM only. His controllers seemed to be the perfect fit for hi power, great features and decent pricing. His 72 200 controller was able to push 12-14 kw I've heard, for really short burst closer to 20 kw. With lots of great features. In my eyes mobi...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

Some snowmobilers that run heavy turbo kits and more then 300 hp have started to use temp sensors to monitor the belt temperature, to avoid belt failure in critical situations like high marking serious steep mountains or climbing narrow shutes where belt failure will cause cause havoc. Results shows...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

don't know if it got freewheel, I would assume it does. But that is not the major issue with the pedal kit. Look at pics of the pedal kit, What they have done is putting a tiny rear sprocket on the rear wheel. Taking away that great torque the Sur Ron e-moto got. Then look at the gearing for the pe...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

Does the pedal kit already have the potential to work just as a fake pedal setup? I assume it has a freewheel mechanism to let the bike move faster than you can pedal, so can the freewheel be disconnected from the rest of the kit, leaving pedals that turn without doing anything else? Better still w...

I understand the idea of wanting pedals, but was never intended to be an e-bike it was always an e-moto.

Re: Ebike Hub Motor overheating cooling solution - HUBSINK OFFICIAL THREAD

rberger maybe yet another hubsink is what you need? Didn't catch what motor you run, but if you got enough width between motor flanges to fit two hubsinks side by side that should help with the added thermal mass. Heat should be drawn even faster out from the motor. Worth trying as you say, dependin...

Re: Redesigned hubmotor for mid drive

Subscribed. What controller do you plan to run? 1T motor will have very low inductance so can be hard on controllers. 1T motor should have maximum copper fill and thereby ability to take even more peak phase current. Unless you will experience unexpected problems with eddy current or that the low in...

This will be well spent money, and paired with the Ferrofluid you will have a stable motor that you can run long time without heat issues.

No no you only need one. Have you got Ferrofluid yet? Hubsink works very well with Ferrofluid. Price is not high for the hubsink. The guy who makes them and sell them made them for the ES users. He is a member on this forum. So those hubsinks are small production run, and I don't think he makes much...

The pic is not really reveling much useful information for me. If you could use either a tape measure or a caliper and measure the width between the flanges and the outside diameter of the motor, measured in the middle of the flanges. If you don't got a tape measure at hand use a piece of string or ...
