Re: Full suspension semi recumbent for long range

I've had good luck with Phil Wood Tenacious lube on freewheels. Drop it on the inside diameter of the lockring by the smallest cog, right where the splines for the tool are. This side works better than the backside where the threads are. Put a good amount, then hold the back end and spin it around a...

Re: GNG X1-pro 3000w

A 54T, ooh, even better. And, you're right, a 12s voltage would be better off for my speed desires. I didn't think about the rpm limiter. That would let me hit 50 mph on a road bike at 130 rpm, lol. Does anyone know if they have a gear sensor for this kit, or will the bbshd type work just as well? O...

Re: GNG X1-pro 3000w

Looks like it will be the chain version. A 38T chainring is kinda limiting in top speed, even going to an 11T sprocket. I'm thinking of putting one of these on my e-road bike project, instead of a bbshd. I like the size and power of this thing, where it will probably last for a while at 2000w. I'd h...

Re: GNG X1-pro 3000w

Can anyone tell how big of a chainring can fit on the chain drive type? The gear version is restricted to the 38T , because of the (obvious need for the) closer distance, which is the only reason I have to go with the chain version. It looks like it might be a 50T, and a tight fit at that. My main q...

Also, here's a handful of more options.

Re: Giant Trance X1 build for MAX range

Well I've been trying to figure out what way I want to go with the battery. I can do two 20s6p packs or a single 20s12p pack. The idea with doing 2 packs is I could shed weight when I didn't need the high capacity and I could shorten my charge time by being able to have both packs charging at the s...

Re: Raleigh Talus 1 Ebike Build

Yes, braking power is very good! It'll launch you forward pretty good with regen maxed out. You'd never expect braking force over time to be a source of hand pain, if your grip and glove game is lacking. As far as handling, it gets very stable at 25, and cruises in a straight line very well. This fr...

Thanks! I knew how I wanted to ride it, and did my homework figuring out the number, type of cells and configuration I needed. I think I can get 180 miles on a charge cruising at 20 mph, which only asks for 3 amps from the pack (27 ah usable). The volts are doing all the work, which is part of the e...

Re: Raleigh Talus 1 Ebike Build

I also ended up going with a WCEC 6T edge 1500w motor, since the ~7.7 Kv was far more appropriate for my 24s voltage. I also use regen on the rear, since I haven't had the caliper mount attached yet. Braking power is very effective from 35-0 mph, when combined with that awesome 4 piston saint calipe...

Wcec seems to have something similar to the edge. That's the place to get it for now. I have the 6T (~7.7kv) edge 1500w , running 24s on a 26" MTX39 rim. I'll hit it with 45 amps (4000w) on a WCEC 18fet (for 15-20 sec), and she'll do every bit of +52mph. Trying to ease into the throttle, pulling 25...

Out riding today, and the voltmeter goes haywire, all over the place, dipping down to 70, 50, 15v , when it was just at 90v. It (the CA) wouldn't power on a few times, then when it did, the voltmeter was 4v off, and it sagged by twice as much as it was supposed to. Using regen, the volts went up to ...

Okay, so for what it's worth, someone did actually post the max charge current for a GA cell. It's 3.35a , found here in thunderheart's reviews. I have the Sanyo GA , which also tested over capacity at 3550mah. So, I have no worries now if I slam 18a into the battery.

Re: Fast Charging a 24s11p GA Pack

If you NEED to you can. But charging so fast will kill the pack in 100~200 cycles at best. These are the things I want to know about. I'll only be charging at most 0.3C to 0.4C , which sounds reasonable according to previous replies. I will never (and won't be able to) use 0.5C on this pack. Plus, ...

As stated in the specs , a GA cell has a standard charge current of 1.675a (others say 1.475a) . Is this 'standard current' a safe value that avoids too much heat?

If yours won't work without seeing the battery, you could charge the battery it was meant for, then use that battery to run the boost converter.

Re: Discrepancy between CycleAnalyst and Satiator

It could be that the shunt value is wrong in the CA, I'm inclined to believe that the charger is correct. You could connect a Wattmeter to the AC side of the charger. Also you could monitor for how long it is charging with Constant Current, and multiply the hours times the Charging Current, to get ...
