Re: Do you use an fairing or partial fairing on your ebike, emoped or BSM?

The entire recumbent design is based on aerodynamic adaptation, but at the SEVERE loss of handling because all that weight so low to the ground means flicking a bike around is fighting physics all the time. Oh yeah, the aerodynamics. But they're practically unrideable. Also no one can see you on th...

Re: Too many idiots on the streets

I now have two blinkers on the back of my bike and intend to put a strobe/blinker on the front. As a car driver I find them annoying, especially the front strobes, and that is the point. Even as a super bike aware car driver, I still notice the bikers more with the annoying lights and am safer with ...

I'm interested in a couple of batteries and the hub motors. How do you ship, how do you want payment, and need photos of the hub motors.

Re: Trouble shoot me!

Now, with the CA connected, I get 8 flashes, which according to your chart indicates a phase wire issue. With the CA disconnected I get 3 flashes and then 5 flashes, then 3 then 5..... indicating according to the chart a hall wire issue. I guess that means I need to open up the motor???? More advice...

Re: Trouble shoot me!

So I bought a new potentiometer from Grin but it's not the problem. The system does exactly the same thing: a very brief pulse of power to the wheel and then nothing. What could cause this tiny pulse and then cut-off?

Thanks!

Re: New Voilamart hub motor only crawls, why?

Thanks guys for your suggestions. I figured it out. You have to have the pedal sensor plugged in but you don't have to use it.

New Voilamart hub motor only crawls, why?

I am trying to install a new voilamart 1000w hub motor for a friend. I have installed the wheel, throttle and battery and have connected them to the controller. The kit comes with a crank movement sensor but I was hoping for simplicity to have the motor controlled by the throttle regardless of pedal...

Re: Rans Stratus - Recumbent

FWIW, my Ryan Vanguard LWBR, has a Mac 5T up front and a small 350-500w cyclone mid chain. Yes, it is heavy! I especially like having two independent drive systems. Having the Mac up front has not hurt the handling at all even at low speed. In fact, I like the feeling of solidity at speed. It handle...

E-hp, I unplugged the CA and tried it. It did the same exact thing: a 1/10 second surge and then nothing, with the controller still flashing those 4 LED flashes.

Amberwolf, thanks for the detailed questions. I will try to answer them. I wiggled and checked all of the original connections (took the throttle addition out of the picture). This set up has a pedal/motion detector on the crank that goes directly to the controller. It is one of those rings that sli...

Re: Trouble shoot me!

It seemed like when you wiggled it sometimes it worked again. But never consistently.

I don't know if the system uses the speed sensor on the wheel or the crank movement sensor to turn on assist. Does anyone?

I have an EZ front hub motor with a Cycle Analyst V2, a crank sensor, speed sensor and potentiometer (I think that is what its called. A knob at the handle bar determining how much assistance is available. 36V. It was lent to a friend over the summer. It started to work intermittently. I thought it ...

Re: reliable middrive for commute?

I have a bbshd with a 61tooth chainring so I can effectively pedal at 35mph. To your question, I have done quite a bit of maintenance on my BBSHDs to keep them running. The hub motor is more reliable for sure.

Re: Trio Cargo e-bike mid drive

I have three BBSHD's. I like them a lot. But I have also burned up three stock internal controllers and I do not ride hard at all. One of them was water ingress. I have also melted the internal Anderson connectors between the controllers and the motor. I'm unhappy with that design. It is also very u...

Re: Wiring up a mid drive

On my three BBSHDs, I can set the PAS to 0 and then throttle when I want. I often ride this way when I am after exercise (but not too much.). I don't remember if I programmed it this way or if it was stock. But I never had a programming cable, so any programming I did was simply through the display ...

I opened up the controller. Found broken insulation on the phase wires and melted anderson connectors. I repaired these, put it on the bike, it ran unloaded. Turned it off, neatened and tightened. Now, again, it powers up, no error codes but doesn't run. Any ideas? Considering an external controller...

Re: Understanding and Using EGO Power+ Batteries

Lithium chargers, as I understand it, gradually up their output, staying just ahead of the voltage charge of the battery. The question I have is whether having 58v come constantly from the MPPT cause a shortened battery life?
