Banning all ebikes from the Hudson River Greenway could cause problems its a north-south commuting route. Hopefully police will stop harassing fo...

Speed sensor insulation rubbed off - what repair tape?

On my way into work I heard a high pitched friction whine coming from somewhere on the bike, when I got to work I discovered my BBS01 speed sensor had rotated in its zip tie to face against the tire and it has rubbed through the rubber insulation.

BBS01a controller question

I’ve found the supplier from whom I bought my BBS01a no longer has any controllers for that model. On another forum someone suggested the controller from a BBS02a will work as a replacement, just checking is this true?

I've not noticed the barrel heating up, but it makes a spark when it's plugged in. The charger gets warm in the bag. I have a 2A charger if you think this is a fools errand.
