Re: GNG X1-pro 3000w

Does anyone have any real videos of this unit fitted to an actual bike? What about information about the PAS and how it works (torque/cadence etc)? I love the look of it, but with so little information available, I'm not sure I could bring myself to spend BBSHD money on it at this time. Maybe once i...

Re: Paradox Kinetics Hermes

Appreciate the update, thanks. I’m still yet to dip my toe in to ebiking and have been swaying between a BBSHD, a TSDZ2 or the new Lingbei model, but this also perked my interest. Unfortunately this being twice the price of anything else wipes it straight off the table. The Lingbei is promising, but...

Re: Paradox Kinetics Hermes

Looks like a really really nice unit, but damn it's expensive.
Twice the price of a BBSHD setup based on the pricing I've been given - and that assumes purchasing a battery direct from em3ev.

Re: New "Lingbei MM28.250 torque sensor mid drive"

Torque sensor is not as sophisticated as the TSDZ2, so it's more of a cadence sensor, but different and IMO better than the BBS02... Plus it's still quiet as the BBS02 so that is a leg up on the TSDZ2 as well... This is slightly worrying considering it's advertised as a torque sensor. Starting to t...

Re: New "Lingbei MM28.250 torque sensor mid drive"

I know they're ex Bafang engineers, but could they come up with a name any more similar to BBS02? :lol: Eyebyesickle, you were going to do a review previously. Did that ever get posted? Would love to read it. You mention further refining the torque sensor. Does that mean it's still not right in comp...

Re: New "Lingbei MM28.250 torque sensor mid drive"

eye, What parts of that motor can have some metal machined off for lighter total weight ? What parts of that motor can be made from milled/machined aluminium billet for even more weight savings ? An ebike is never going to be light. Why are you worried about an extra kilo or two as the additional p...

My motor did BURN For the guys that got theirs motors to much hot up to the point that the motor stops for some minutes, did you found after that your motor did loose for ever torque?? No, in my experience if the motor cuts off due to high temps it comes back fine... So, yesterday I got for the fir...

Re: New "Lingbei MM28.250 torque sensor mid drive"

Same here, waiting for an update! Probably should just buy one so lingbei knows I’m serious :idea: I've had that thought also, but don't want to end up with something that is shortly superseded and can't be upgraded easily. The newer model with improved torque assist, a firmware update plug and hig...

Re: New "Lingbei MM28.250 torque sensor mid drive"

It's all gone a bit quiet in here.
I was hoping to see lots of positive updates with the new hardware being received, but if anything it seems to be the opposite.
Are we to assume it's still got issues?

Re: New "Lingbei MM28.250 torque sensor mid drive"

Sounds promising.

I guess we just wait for the 22A units and assume that all the other changes have been rolled in as well.

It would be good if these companies had a person on the forums responding to comments and providing information on what they're doing.

Thanks for the update.

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Here you go - keep in mind depending who is making an overdrive motor - the controller programming/setting may not be stock, allowing you to reach cadence past a certain point :wink: 48v unit, 48v setting, 48v battery = 48v 36v unit, 48v setting, 48v battery = 48v overdrive 48v unit, 52v setting, 5...

Is anyone able to at least confirm the following quote, as I'm sure i've read that the 48v model doesn't work with a fully charged 52v battery, so how is the 52v overdrive setting achieved? Looking at the overdrive option, does this mean the following; 48v unit, 48v setting, 48v battery = 48v 36v un...

52v overdrive has perked my interest a lot. Must have a look at that site.

Re: New "Lingbei MM28.250 torque sensor mid drive"

They are going to release several firmware versions in the coming weeks with different Torque/Cadence ratios for us to try. So we can have a try which works best. We're still pushing the manufacturer to release code(maybe under NDA) so we can enable programming settings over the existing cables. Ar...

Re: New "Lingbei MM28.250 torque sensor mid drive"

LB has a 40km/hr limit defined in the display. This is not a hard limit and the throttle quickly pulls to this speed. I don't think the motor is running at max RPM at this speed as I can pedal the same speed in a lower gear(but means I have to pedal like crazy lol). Do you mean the motor goes faste...

Re: New "Lingbei MM28.250 torque sensor mid drive"

And if it gives max lower speed, it also does lower cadence, right? My understanding is that the specs quote the cadence at 120RPM. Fantasy2 has also quoted that it's far too easy to ride with this motor at 45km/h when putting in hardly any effort and that the power levels translate as follows; Som...

Re: New "Lingbei MM28.250 torque sensor mid drive"

Had an email from okfeet to tell me the 48v 500w version is back in stock for anyone waiting to order. I'm unfortunately stuck on the fence between this and the TSDZ2 at the moment. The TSDZ2 has a total cadence that I think will be too low for me, where as the Lingbei has issues with the way the to...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

I would suggest getting the 52v 750w motor. Another user has reported that the cadence is a bit higher than on the 48v engine so it apparently uses the same 48v motor winding. I would also go with a 14s battery. By running in the 58.8v - 42v range your max engine rpm (cadence) should be in the 100 ...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Can I ask if anyone knows if the 70rpm limit is a software or hardware limitation?
I'm just wondering if the open source firmware would be able to increase this limit at all.

I don't own this motor, but am very interested in it, but see the 70rpm limit as being very low for normal cycling.

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Can I ask what the reliability of these motors is like compared to the Bafang ones? I'm really liking the torque assist over the cadence assist that the Bafang ones offer and the motors look very easy to service from the youtube videos I've watched. I'd be looking at about 60km/day commuting if that...
