Re: Cheap, but decent sensored sine wave controller

the baserunner does 35amps? and cheaper than phaserunner Ive considered that, but its still a little too pricey. I would have to buy another CAv3 as well since I plan on this bike having pedal assist. As far as im aware, baserunner/phaserunner will operate fine without a display using a throttle, b...

Re: Cheap, but decent sensored sine wave controller

So basically I have an old tandem that Im currently converting. I already laced up a 1500W leaf motor, but when i tried to hook it up to a controller i had, it didnt work. So i tried another controller... didnt work. The controllers wouldnt even power on. Then i hooked up my phaserunner and it worke...

Re: Cheap, but decent sensored sine wave controller

I've had very good luck with the Phaserunner/Cycle Analyst combo on four ebikes now. Could it be that you are setting it up wrong? There's a lot to set up on them. Sorry, I guess i wasnt very clear... Not sure why I even needed to mention the phaserunner. It works perfect and has been for a few yea...

Cheap, but decent sensored sine wave controller

I am looking for a somewhat cheap controller for a 52v battery that can handle 40A peaks. Its like a jungle out there. I currently have a phaserunner on one bike and then 3 or 4 kt controllers lying around, but they all have some sort of problem and I dont know enough about electronics to troublesho...

Re: Who is the best custom battery maker for ebike frame

i had a custom battery made my vector. It cost just a tad bit over wholesale prices from nkon.eu plus some extra for a bms. I dont know how it held up, but i put about 5000kms on it before the bike was stolen and it seemed to be quite well built. Although, i didnt dissasemble it to actually see the ...

Re: Phaserunner limits power by speed, slow accelaration, top power only at top speed on flat street

I've experienced the same thing. I used to have an infineon controller that was very responsive with the throttle. since I've switched over to the phaserunner my acceleration is much slower. I've spent a lot of time adjusting various values on the phaserunner, but I'm only slightly faster at acceler...

mt60 for phase wires

i have a 1000w hub motor that I'm currently lacing in a 24" rim. it will be powered by a 52v battery that is rated to 60A. the controller is only a 30A max. so I won't be using the battery's full potential, but that's fine for me (and the battery)... anyways, my question is probably a stupid questio...

Re: Moving the brake caliper inwards

Sometimes it's better to move the rotor out with a spacer, but you may need slightly longer bolts too. Don't use a plastic spacer that comes with some motors.. That's just to keep the bolts from going in too far to the motor case while no rotor is mounted... It's too mushy for actual spacer-ing.s-l...

Moving the brake caliper inwards

I just put a rear hub onto a fat bike, but I have a problem... The existing caliper needs to move inwards (closer to the hub) by about 2 centimeters. Is there an adapter that will allow for this?

Is there any important functionality in the CAv3 that is not already available with the Nucular controllers' software? I'm looking for something smaller with the same or similar functions as the CAv3. The nucular is big and I'm my opinion not that much of an asthetic improvement over the CA. Someth...

The one with the sensor will not work with the CA3 but at least the wire is in the shaft.
so what could we use to show a readout of the temperature instead? im looking for a cheap and easy option. I have a leafmotor with the temp sensor installed by leaf.

this is the cyc X1 which would have been quite obvious to you if you had read the thread title.
The thread title says gng/cycmotor. So it has both in the title.

I'm a bit confused. Is the gng and cyc the same motor? The gng looks like a cyclone, while the cyc looks a bit smaller
