Re: Bafang Ultra/M620/G510 Clutch Repair

You're referring to the spindle freewheel mechanism, not the one-way bearing typically referred to as the "clutch" (just to avoid confusion for any other readers, replies)

Biktrix also sells these replacement parts, if you've bought an Ultra motor from us (for future reference).

Re: Best Mid-drive Motors in 2021

Bullfrog, we're primarily looking to sell these motors on our own bikes, many of which are built on compatible frames. Selling motors for DIY is a bonus opportunity for adoption, which I'm expecting will lead to even more variety in applications :D

Re: Best Mid-drive Motors in 2021

Just a suggestion, design and offer a separate motor that will mount similarly to the BBSHD as well as the one you have...that will should cover just about every bike frame made today. Unfortunately, not every bike frame will ever be compatible with this type of drive system. 157mm is the narrowest...

Re: Best Mid-drive Motors in 2021

Bullfrog, The ESC (motor controller) will actually take 72V Nominal (~90VDC) and up to 90A, but we have never tested the system that high due to our preference for commercially-available battery packs. Most likely the motor will burn out at those power levels anyway :) 50A is about what our pack BMS...

Re: Best Mid-drive Motors in 2021

Mid drive, up to 60V, 50A, over 300 Nm torque at the rear wheel, tougher than anything I've ever ridden. We have tried to destroy these bikes and nothing will break (besides some early electronics iterations, usually from R&D guys wiring things up weird, the engineers did nothing wrong!)

Hi, excuse me if I get in the way, but I would like to ask you a question, can I install this motor on a 190mm rear frame? Actually yes. I have one myself, fit fine, typical to use some spacers to get it just right. I'm running it with Grin Baserunner, peak wattage 1500W, in a commuter bike with to...

Great build, lots of fine work in there! Bike looks fantastic too. You mentioned the cyclone planetary reduction, some of those are actually good! They really need the proper grease to work the way they should. Mobilith SHC 100 is perfect choice, about 1/3 of a whole tube. Assuming the gears fit wel...

Yet another promising project stalled with the woes of home hobbyist CNC... best of luck, I do think it's always smarter to outsource the CNC milling/laser/etc. Owning a finnicky CNC, at best, you'll break even (best case scenario!). Applying time and skills to design is more important, leave the cu...

Re: Damn rear derailleurs

No derailleur or IGH will perform well if you're not controlling power output during shifts, that is a fact. Even a Rohloff shifts like a piece of garbage if you don't cut power. My solution has been to manually interrupt power during the shift with an additional mini-lever, which uses the front ebr...

Re: Sn0wchyld's 12kw custom frame mid drive

Do the smart thing and outsource the cutting. You'd be done years ago, for less cost, with less headache. Your machine didn't fail because of bad luck, it was lack of experience (and cheap equipment). You can outsource the cutting to a professional jobbing shop with expensive, reliable tools, and th...

Re: Mid drive with a proper Q factor + spacing - does it exist?

The mid drive requirement is not so easily dropped. With a semi recumbent bike, i have a very light front end, and could use a mid drive as ballast to prevent power wheelies. Ideal place to put a motor is up front, ideal traction wheel is in the back because >80% of the rider weight sits on the bac...

Re: Can only set BBSHD to 28amps max?

I guess 28 amps versus 30 isn't really a big deal. I'm just one of those types that doesn't like to leave any performance on the table. Right, and by the same logic, you'll be leaving reliability and uptime on the table by mucking with the stock controller. Best performance solution is to keep stoc...
