Re: low voltage cut off when riding a long ride

Thanks it charged up to full my controller cut it off when i got home to look the battery was still at 70 volts but when i charged it it still went fine up to 83.9 volts Your controller cut it off at about 62-65v under load. That is 3.1 to 3.25v under load. It bounced back to 70v or 3.5v resting. Y...

Re: UK Law regarding E-Bikes

The thing hurting costa rica is the no license requirement, not the no type approval or other bureaucracy. We have license+insurance requirement in a few EU countries (still no reg, no type approval) and the incident rates are very, very low.

I wouldn't stop if they tried though, not letting some monkeys steal my stuff. Can you get away with refusing to stop for police there? No license plate to speak of. They routinely get fired/sued if they cause someone harm (including the suspect), even if they are in a chase. So they are not exactl...

Re: UK Law regarding E-Bikes

Keep it looking like a bike and they won't bother you. Battery box, triple clamp fork, big hub motor, elaborate mid drive with big reductions raise your profile. So does motorcycle helmet/gear and going fast or running reds. I commuted one season so far, past 20 cops and am fine. I wouldn't stop if ...

If you want the strongest 1 1/8 fork then a triple clamp (dual crown) is what you are looking for.

Incomplete. Look up MSVA.
So, this would provide an avenue for those e-bikes found to be not legal, to become legal. Ie, those that hit the 'No' box on the left?
Yes, it is a cheap but labouros process. There is anecdotal evidence of a few people doing it, some even here on ES.

Re: Opportunity Charging in the UK

These guys were the cheapest last time I looked. I like the idea of the 3 pronged C13 power supply connection. It just plugs right into your charger! A lot of weight and space saved. https://www.laadkabelfabriek.nl/product/laadkabel-type-2-male-naar-c13-apparaatstekker/ https://www.laadkabelfabriek....

Thanks, and planetary reduction is 6:1?
Yes
You can raise the max rpm about 12-15% with field weakening though, in the stock controller it is done with the 3 speed switch in high setting. You can just connect the two wires if you want it always on.

...This is without field weakening, which adds ~12-15% extra (called high speed in controller software, and requires a 3 speed switch).

Re: Dream commuter bike build

You forget that it's much cheaper. The price difference between cyclone 3kw and 4kw is about $50-70. Can you pedal with cyc x1? Generally yes, maybe not when you are going super fast though. But on uphills and starting off, yes. You realize to hold 35mph you need 1500-2000watts, and your legs can a...

Re: Dream commuter bike build

I would not recommend the cyclone 3kw motor, the advantage is too small over the bbshd. There is a cyclone 4kw motor, with a 30% bigger core. It would be better suited. The 4kW Cyclone is awfully wide for someone who actually pedals. I think it's wide enough impair most people. Yea, he would need w...

You may want to play with the Grin simulator to set your expectations.

Couple of questions regarding controllers: 1) Is there a good current based alternative to stock controller? stock controller controls speed rather than current. 2) When I try to set overspeed in stock controller, I can only set it up to 15.

Hello! Who knows how many turns in the Cyclone coaxial motor winding?
The kV is 62.5. I estimate around 8-10 strand wires when I open and look at it.
