Re: Will the cold winter Shorten the life?

I’d run the new one too, you’ll enjoy some extra power and you seem to know how you should take care of it well.

Re: 29" e-bike for commuting - rear hub motor or TSDZ2 ?

I like the tsdz2 system and I have 3 going at the moment. If you like to pedal go with the torque sensing you will be happier with it. I don’t mind to work on them a bit and its not hard, greasing or replacing parts. Some attention to using a stronger chain and smooth shifting makes a nice ride. You...

Have you tried the vendor where you bought it? If that doesn't work member eyebicycle may be able to help, or the bafang bbs ones fit also, lots of vendors for those

Re: TSDZ2 vs Bafang BBSO2

You got it pretty right, bafang is a scooter, tsdz2 is still a bike with help.

I have both, now I prefer tsdz2 cause I need to pedal for exercise but lots of hills locally for old legs.

Re: Xtracycle cargo bike conversion questions

Everyone has there opinions on the different types of setup. I’ve had 2 front hubs and ditched them both pretty fast as being unsafe for where I ride. Maybe they are fine on pavemant only but any gravel and the front wheel spins out. I have a mix of road types in my area so no way am I spinning out ...

Re: Xtracycle cargo bike conversion questions

I guess I’m lucky enough to have a bbshd that has throttle in level 0, I pretty much just pedal and use thumb throttle as required. The pas is if you want to ghost peddle and cruise along under motor power. Doesn’t sound like how you ride. Kinda hard to keep thumb off throttle for me too much fun. I...

Re: Xtracycle cargo bike conversion questions

TSDZ2 is a good motor but you will need to be careful in your stiuation stessing the motor while starting with a load. One of the drive gears is plastic and acts a bit as a sacrificial part. It will strip before something else goes so you should have a spare. Swapping it out is not to hard. You can ...

Re: Xtracycle cargo bike conversion questions

You have chosen a pretty good setup for what you want to do but battery size is alwsys an issue. BBSHD will both carry weight and ride in hilly country as long as you use appropriate gears. You need to travel quite slow to be able to contribute much pedaling, like less than 20 mph. Chainring sizing ...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

It looks like the plastic cover over the big gear may not be seated properly, you would need to remove the chainring to seat it properly.

Ok, I also wanted to show something I do for any FULL SUSPENSION TSDZ2 CONVERSION. As you know, the TSDZ2 comes with a bracket, that attaches usually where a kickstand goes etc... as an extra anchor. You cannot use this part on full suspension conversions, as this part pivots, and usually wont have...

Re: Custom battery build for downhill bike (need work double checked)

why is the battery shape so different in your 2 versions? It seems like its for the same bike. I have found that the custom shaped battery enclosure is the most complicated part of a build because it needs to fit and be secured well and you need to make the battery to fit inside of it. Even making a...
