A Tassie company been going for a while now. No personal experience with them.

Re: 2 Speed Xiongda hubmotor

I have three, two have been fine so far. The third has (mtr) issues after a few weeks it may have a loose wire, I need to check. I could also only think of water ingress as I left it out in the rain.. The throttle is intermittent but the throttle and controller work fine. knutselmaaster, Alan or oth...

Re: Xiongda Wheel Build

Thanks for the advice. Iv'e now built three into 27.5" rims. I ended up using a park tool tensionmeter and for the last just tensioned the drive side, off side then the two again and was done. Typically over-thunk on my part.

ps. Yes, Bonnie is a pleasure to deal with.

Re: 2 Speed Xiongda hubmotor

My latest touring project XD @ 36v.. It's a bit of a slug, the throttle response is like throwing a cracker among a group of tortoise.. tortii?.. but with these two em3ev dolphins, 31A/H should have good range under the shell :)

Re: 2 Speed Xiongda hubmotor

Yes, understood. I have no meniscus in one and little in another. I find this little motor cranks up some steep grades, sitting back on the saddle. I'm actually playing around with sprokets to get more top end/speed assistance. It may prove too much on our hills. I think you'd get three sp.

Re: 2 Speed Xiongda hubmotor

Hello, I'm considering the 2 speed xiongda motor for a second build, with more torque in mind. Sadly the motor seems very wide. Is there any chance it could fit into an aluminium 135mm disc rear frame ? Cold bending aluminum is not advisable, so I guess I only have +-2mm of spare room. You have eno...

Re: 2 Speed Xiongda hubmotor

Something I probably would have done first, before bending, would be to check how parallel the dropouts are and if they are indeed centrered (if they are supposed to be). Along with string/measurements off the seat-stay, I used two threaded bolts (in place of an axle) and bent each dropout tang to g...

Re: 2 Speed Xiongda hubmotor

Ok, thanks. I'm thinking mine (in the 27.5) may in fact be a 135mm axle. Which looks to mean it lacks an axle nut..

I used sheldon browns lever method to bend my fat bike steel frame, one side at a time.

Re: 2 Speed Xiongda hubmotor

It's a wide motor. I have an message from Bonnie saying 5sp/145mm but I couldn't even see that happening for me. If anyone else has a 7sp/145mm disc i'm interested too.

Re: 48V battery on a 36V motor?

What controller do you have?, you may be able to id the controller and what it's setup for by model number without taking apart for a look.. I have what i gather is an earlier version of the one above and it's capable of 72v by removing an external wire.

Re: Ebike battery as power hub after a disaster.

I'd skip using the battery for such heavy draw. The company i'm involved with supply foodstuffs for extended hiking. Dehy (as opposed to freeze dry) comes back as good as fresh. Meats will last 12 weeks unfridged.

Re: Here Comes the Sondors Fold

Yes, the controller is to the rear of the hinge, and the battery is to the front of it. It looks like it will be really easy to hack the battery compartment, and install a different battery. The stock Panasonic 48v 14 ah battery pack is good quality, and I'm getting 40 miles practical range. One th...

Re: Here Comes the Sondors Fold

Is the controller in the rear frame? I like that frame. It's a great looking package, imagine they'll sell very well. These are apparently to be released in my country. So you will either need to buy a Sondors battery (to upgrade or renew) or DIY. I imagine the proprietary battery will put some off ...

Yes, well, DHL, Fedex, UPS, USPS, TNT.. etc. that's the bonus, for Australia they have a direct link to Austpost shipping for example, which is much cheaper than any general carrier..

Hey, Hi Ian, nice bike! It was great finding your posts here after a search.

Re: Is it OK to run a MAC without an inner washer?

I should correct what I said, the drops on my norco were just alloy/aluminum. I don't recall any damage but then wasn't looking for it, and may not have been able to see it. Another thought about the torque washers (and the arms) is to get the tension on them when tightening- tensioning down towards...
