Re: Leaf / leafmotor / leafbike high efficiency 1500w motor

Question on this actually... Started to notice motor isn't hitting my 30 mph ceiling as easy as before. Is this the battery/ controller/ motor going bad?

Re: Leaf / leafmotor / leafbike high efficiency 1500w motor

just bought the 20" leafbike rear 1500w conversion kit in 4t and a 50v 20ah em3ev rectangular battery (pf cells) for install on a 8 speed full-suspension downtube folding bike Yikes, i had one of those bikes for a moment and couldn't stand how rickety it felt even at pedal speeds. I still have a br...

Re: Moving conversion kit to new bike.. issues

Thanks for tip. Found similar part on amazon. Fingers crossed!

Took it for a ride with dogs sans power other day. Rides smooth for a bicycle at least! (I do need to tweak derailleur though zzz).

Moving conversion kit to new bike.. issues

I'm moving my leafmotor conversion kit (1500w, 20", PAS and ebrake only) to new bicycle. This is a journal of things that are in my way and how I'm getting through them. Mostly, kit has been rock solid. Changing over to new bike because I am paranoid of the folding mechanism on other bike potentiall...

Re: Magura MT5 four-piston front brake improves brake power and modulation

Does this mean you have done take off hydraulic front brakes you might be willing to sell? :)

I'm looking to upgrade the v brakes on my 8fs downtube folder that I'm kitting out with a 1500w leaf bike kit this weekend

Please let me know!

Re: My experience with "leafbike" electric bike kit

Their kits are terrible. I wouldn't touch them. The controllers are not matched to the motor's continuous capabilities, and as far as i know, not programmable. That 1000W motor is wound WAY too fast ( 40mph winding, which requires 2000W continuous, on a 1000W motor? WTF? ) That being said the 1500W...

Anyone have experience or issues with their full conversion kits (can the controller take a 52v ...40 amps continuous?) Or should I source ...

Re: Comparing DIY vs Commercial E-Bike options for my 1st Eb

If I were you: 1) $300 bike off craiglist 2) $300 leafmotor 3) $200 sine wave controller 4) $600 DIY battery, ~1KWh capacity. You'll be a little over budget but that bike will kill dismember and hide the corpse of a $1200 commercial ebike. Hello... Was curious if there was a sine wave controller yo...

ebike performance in 110-150 degree and 80%+ humidity?

curious what performance concerns there would be with operating and maintaining an ebike (dd or geared) in both an extremely humid and hot atmosphere? I recall that rain isn't so much a problem for hub motors as is the temperature differential wicking in moisture into the hub... if everything is hot...

If so then you can limit the power.
If not, you can limit the power via the controller if it programmable, if its not the a physical change to the controller via the shunt modification.
Considering both options in analysis of alternatives, yes.
