Ah that's not bad at all; better than others I've seen. Thanks for the pic.

Re: What brakes are the BBS02 levers supposed to be used wit

For future travelers, I replaced the noodle (with a standard one that doesn't have a 'power modulator'), the cable, and the housing, and it's great now. I replaced them all at once so I can't tell you which was the problem (sorry). For what it's worth, this is with the silver and black two-tone leve...

Re: Does anyone in the US sell 2p packs, or make custom pack

I chatted with okashira, but he/she doesn't make packs with BMSs, at least not currently, and I was looking for a complete pack with BMS and all that.

Re: What brakes are the BBS02 levers supposed to be used wit

If you are interested in fitting something like this, so that you can use your old levers, then I can post a picture of how mine are fitted. Just say the word :) Sure, I wouldn't mind seeing your pics. I thought about going that route but discarded it because I haven't seen any installs that look a...

Re: Does anyone in the US sell 2p packs, or make custom pack

Any other vendors doing custom 13s2p packs? This is for a custom application (non-eike). A 13s3p pack has a bunch of extra weight and isn't needed, and a 14s pack has too high voltage for the electronics. So it really has to be a 13s pack. I haven't found one of those either. There are some compani...

What brakes are the BBS02 levers supposed to be used with?

My bike has some sort of no-name linear pull brakes. The front has a 'power modulator' (spring in the noodle for antilock). With the Bafang levers that came with my BBS02 kit (two-tone, silver with black grips), I can't get an adjustment that feels right. Even adjusted so the pad is about 1mm from t...

Re: Potting Batteries, Thoughts and Experiments

This is amazing. If you make something like a 1x7 with 15A cells, I'd buy 4 to make a 14s2p seat bag pack without even looking at the price.

Re: Where to get 14s2p 52V 6-7Ah packs?

Maybe look at the 56v 7ah battery packs for EGO outdoor power equipment, they are a very well made pack and can supply around 45a constant. That's interesting. Do you know of any posts or write ups on people using them for ebikes? The one that came to mind for me was Lunas mini pack. It's pretty ti...

Re: Does anyone in the US sell 2p packs, or make custom pack

I won't be drawing more than 20A. I think a 14s2p pack with 30q cells will be fine.

Re: Does anyone in the US sell 2p packs, or make custom pack

Smallpacks are much more easier to kill BMS and checking cells it's just easier to kill. Luna has them. A cheap Chinese pack has cheap generic cells. These packs can only be made with high-quality verified cells. Cheap cost twice. The big question is what do you think motor and controller ? I'm not...

Does anyone in the US sell 2p packs, or make custom packs?

I'm crossposting from https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=89171 since it seems no one reads that sub-forum. I'd like to buy small 2p packs for stealth builds. 14s2p in a seatbag-sized pack with enough range for a commute while still being very light. I found legitimate suppliers on...

Where to get 14s2p 52V 6-7Ah packs?

Does anyone make packs to order? Is there anyone who can reliably ship packs like this in the US without a huge hassle and waiting forever? Is there a reason this pack is so hard to find? It seems ideal for a stealth / short-range build.

Re: Battery Packs - Where to buy them

Where can I get a 14s2p 18650 pack? I ordered the one Luna sells, but they seem unable to ship it and I'd like to find a more reliable source for future orders. Is there a vendor that will make a custom pack like that for me?

Will this motor mount work?

I'm installing a BBS02 on an aluminum frame bike. I've seen the famous thread and I'm trying to avoid a similar fate. Also my shifter cable runs down the downtube and under the BB. Since it's an IGH, it's not easy to reroute it along the seat stays, though technically possible. I made this mount out...

Re: Winter Project! BBS02 DIY Build

FYI I followed up with Luna, they say that they've changed the pack back to its original dimensions of 6 x 2.75 x 3.25 .. I didn't get a clear answer on the weight. I would guess I'd climb that hill in my gear 2 or 1 which is 46x32 and 46x36 gearing respectively. Ah I thought you had a 48T .. did yo...

Re: Winter Project! BBS02 DIY Build

Yeah I was only really considering the 30q, mainly due to Karl saying : If you have a BBS02 and want to use the throttle then the only 2P pack you should even consider getting is the 30Q. If you are happy using PAS only then the GA or PF packs should be fine. If you have a BBSHD then the only pack t...

Re: Winter Project! BBS02 DIY Build

I'm planning a similar build and this thread is insanely helpful. Thanks so much. Any reason you opted for the 18650 cells you did instead of the others? Did you talk to Luna about how the dimensions and weight of the pack are wrong? I see they're still wrong on the website, which is kind of shitty,...
