Re: TSDZ2 Opinions Please

Why can't assistance be turned off or reduced automatically as soon as speed drops to 0 mph, km/h.

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Does anyone have good instructions for installing the temperature sensor on the 8 wire version. I just got my replacement motor and don't want to burn up this one also. Last time I tried to install i think i ended up splicing into the wrong wires as it acted like ebrake was activated when sensor wa...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

I have a digital thermometer connected to the motor, no connections to the control unit, I monitor the temperature manually. I noticed that the greatest increase in temperature occurs at high speeds uphill, even not too steep climbs, but faced at speed with long ratios. It also depends on whether t...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Is there a way to rotate the screen on a software level in XH-18 display, so that it can be used with different handle bars. Might not be enough memory to implement.

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

After several commuting 24km roundtrips, I'm surprised how easy is to overheat this thing. Today on 12km trip, where 30% of it was in speed or turbo mode because of the inclines, whole motor case was pretty warm to the touch. I didn't push it too much, just tried to maintain speed over 15km/h on in...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Apparently the Brose motor used on the Specialised Levo has no drag when the motor is turned off https://electrek.co/2018/07/05/shimano-and-brose-mid-drive-motors/ I wonder if there is something we can recommend for the next version of the tsdz2. So I was running very low on power the other day on ...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

I don't care for the XH-18 anymore after extensive use due to unreliability. As another point of view, my experience with the XH-18 has been good. Now I'm less adventurous than eyebyesickle and haven't tried to connect lights, brake switches, higher voltages or change the software. I'm running a st...

What could be this crackling noise coming from a secondary gear area which comes and goes? Recently getting louder.

Re: Framed Minnesota LTD Build

How do you keep it from automatically turning off while riding in unassisted mode. Nobody seems to be concerned with it. Don't know any other way around it but to periodically turn on the assist after every 5 minutes or so, otherwise I have to stop and dismount if I don't want to compromise the tor...

Re: Framed Minnesota LTD Build

This is my stealth e-bike build. TSDZ2 52v with a 6ah mighty mini battery in the tail bag, 100mm fat bike adapter, VLCD-6 display and a 30t chain ring for hill climbing. The Framed Minnesota LTD was a great platform for the build. Decent specs for just under $1000 and the chain line worked well wit...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

What is, in your experience of fried motors and temperature readings, the safe Amperage we can set for the TSDZ2 in order to keep the temperature under acceptable limits? I've actually set 16A (with 36v means about 500w) and does not seem the motor heats up much. I use low gears when climbing, such...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

the only thing is that the thermometer is broken, but it correctly reads the room temperature and also the body temperature. During the test I touched the body of the engine and I could hardly hold my hand, I think over 55 °, inside obviously the temperature is much higher. Unfortunately, in my hil...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Yours is very high geared. Is it just a single speed rear or is 28t your biggest cog on rear cassette? I swapped my 42t chain ring to a 38t narrow wide and my biggest cog on back is 36t I can ride up the same hill with power off but it flys up with it on. Im on 26inch wheels as well so mine is a lo...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Just had my first powered ride.. im more than impressed with how it pulls up hills. Only had time for a quick play. Battery started out at 53.8 volts. I used a 5 ohm vape wire to knock it down bit by bit. At 45.5v the walk mode worked intermittently for a little bit but battery recovered to 46.5 vo...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Throttle: Throttle is available for both, but it’s unnecessary with the TSDZ2. I didn’t use my throttle either with the BBS02. I preferred to engage the pedals. I found it uncomfortable using the throttle exclusively, since you are putting 100% of your weight on your seat. That is why ebikes need s...

Hi! I've been riding a tsdz2 for a while now, with the open-source firmware. It works quite good, not as good as my former bosch performance but it works.
